When assembled, the MI:power board is connected directly to the 3V, GND and P0 connections on the micro:bit.

The board has an easy to access on/off switch, which makes it easy to turn a project on and off, rather than have to disconnect the power supply from the BBC micro:bit.
Once the unit is assembled and attached to the BBC micro:bit the mechanical fixings prevent the battery from being removed unless you use a screwdriver, so whatever the use, the battery will remain safely in place.
Spacers, fixings and a battery are all provided.
