How to enable output on 5v pin on knockoff ESP32-S3-DevKitC-1 boards


Just wanted to give a quick heads-up for people, that have problems powering stuff via the 5v pin on cheap knockoff ESP32-S3 boards.

Took me a while to figure out, but you have to bridge the little pads just above pin 11 and 12. Caveat: Doing so disables the USB connector (the bottom one).

Likewise; you have to bridge the pads above the RGB LED if you want to enable that.
