Product Description

Our Raspberry Pi micro-USB power supplies are the best in the business! They are custom made to our exacting specifications and are designed to work with variable input voltages so you can use them anywhere in the world (regardless of what country you are in, all you would need is a plug adapter to use with a different plug).

We designed these with the Raspberry Pi in mind – unlike most power supplies on the market which are designed for charging phones and tablets. Because the Raspberry Pi is a much greater load on a power supply than charging a phone, you get a significant voltage drop between the power supply output and the Pi input due to losses in the cable. This causes the voltage to drop to as low as 4.5 to 4.7 Volts which can create serious reliability problems with your Pi. For this reason, we have designed our power supplies so they are actually rated at 5.25 Volts – this is within the maximum specification for 5V USB devices, but means we can easily overcome the voltage drop. These power supplies provide a typical operating voltage to the Pi of 5.0 to 5.1 Volts (when measured across voltage test points TP1 and TP2 with a bluetooth and WiFi module plugged in).

Unlike other sellers, we believe in these power supplies so much that we have even put our logo on them! We also offer a 1 year, no quibble, like for like replacement should any problems occur.

    :

    I bought this product for use with a Raspberry Pi Model B, and it works perfectly.

    I do 99% of my online shopping on Amazon; but when I couldn’t find a product like this on there that didn’t have a ton of negative reviews and/or having to do some modifications to get it working, I decided to buy it from here.

    As a Micro USB it’s definitely great for many other purposes as well, but I bought this particularly to use with the Pi, and it’s perfect. Even when using a full enclosure on my Pi the cable fits in absolutely perfectly with no looseness. If you need a power supply for your Pi this is the one to get!

    I also want to add that pi-supply.com’s Customer Service is top-notch. I had a few concerns with my order but Aaron was extremely patient and helpful and assured me that everything was fine with my transaction. Plus, 10 day shipping from the UK to the middle of the US is pretty impressive, so kudos on that too!
