A while ago I shared how I managed, with help from Fuzzing on Edison, to power my Intel Edison without breakout board. While soldering the two power connector wires to the Edison worked, it was not a good job, as the tiny solder joints tended to break very easily once I touched and moved the wires.
After some tinkering, I have now managed to have a more durable solution to power the Edison without a breakout board:

Intel Edison is a marvellous device, but the need to power it through a breakout board, either the mini breakout board or the bigger Arduino breakout board, annoys me. Following the advice in Fuzzing on Edison, I successfully got rid of all those boards without using the micro micro connector (Hirose DF 40) on the Edison’s back:

I am more in the embedded devices field nowadays and after some tinkering with Raspberry Pi, I finally ordered some Intel Edison parts. The Edison is a very small computer with the main board having a size of only 35.5 x 25 x 3.9 mm. Its computing power should be superior to that of a Raspberry Pi, but more to that later. My Edison arrived in a small, beautiful cardboard box:
