Pi power adapter
I’m having a difficult time trying to keep the mirror assembly as thin as possible off the wall and one of the main culprits is the large Pi’s bulky power adapter. Can I switch it out for one like the picture below + USB cable. And what do I need to pay attention to if I do…like Amps for example.
@lpgjg use an extension cord so u can turn it sideways.
@lpgjg - I just went through this and it’s a bit of a headache.
You are correct in that you need to supply enough power to the Pi and the Pi is relatively thirsty. You want to find a USB adapter that supplies a minimum of 2.5A. Any less than that and you’ll get a lightning bolt in the upper right corner of your mirror. And possibly weird errors.
If you can find a source for 2.5A on a USB plug, you’re golden.
@bhepler Thank you, appreciate it
