This connector works perfectly!!!
I'm actually amazed I managed to solder directly to the termination/test pads but it worked. I added a power supply port to a raspi pie game hat build and this port serves as a direct power supply for the device. the current rating can handle powering both the game hat and the pie 3B+ under working/loaded conditions. I don't have to worry about plugging in now and forcing a reset on the device and it truly does make it (the build) as portable as a switch
being it's a USB-C, most chargers with that periphery design in mind can supply upwards of 5 amps and be able to meet my devices demands
(* the only drawback is that there wasn't a provision for mounting in any fashion - I knew this going in and had to work around this but if you plan on doing this mod to a raspi-hat I couldn't source one at the time of my build and a secure mount would definitely raise the level of ease and build quality)
