USB Power Breakout PCB

The other day I wanted to do a quick breadboard circuit test and I needed to get 5V and 3.3V onto the circuit. I have a nice RPi based Hat that could be used to inject power to the breadboard, but it's a monster and I thought all I need is a simple small PCB. So I spent a few hours to make my own one up:

These should supply 2A 5V, with 700mA 3.3V via a USB-C connector. There is a red LED across the polyfuse, with the idea that it should light up when the fuse activates - kind of giving a warning. It's two side and small, so it would be easy and cheap to make into a panel for cheaper production cost. Another thought would be to add a USB Micro connector onto it as well - just to give connection options. Although it would make it sizably larger.
