If I use a 3.7V battery to power the Banana, I understand SATA won't run.
Only SATA power won't run. If You have extra power supply for SATA HDD, they woul'd we work
Will the Banana run OK with just that batter? Will USB ports get 5V? And HDMI out work?
Or is the battery only for the RTC?
Pads for RTC battery are between SATA data line and HDMI port. You may use lit (3V) battery or SUPER CAP/GOLD CAP.
Pads for main battery (lipo,li-ion 3.7V) are between microUSB port IN (DC IN) and SATA data line.
