Well, ain't that a load special shite...

Recommended Posts

I've been planning on selling my side-car TIPI system, so I needed to get new SD card and power supply to get everything setup and working correctly for whoever the new user turns out to be... but in my haste to order the power supply, I did not read the fine print.  I noticed the new power supply for the RPi 4 was rated at 3 amps, not 2.5 but hey, that's good right?  What I did NOT expect was for them to change the power supply connector!  The RPi 4 requires a USB C type, so it will not work for a RPi 3 series Pi.  Just a heads up if you guys are planning to upgrade your Pi.

USB C is better in just about every way other than "oh no, I have a lot of microUSB stuff already." 

 

I like that you put it on top of your TI ("Solid State Software") to take the photo. 🤠

Sprinkle some of these around your house so you can be ready for the period of transition. Which will not be over soon.

And in a forum whose members still use DB25 connectors, who love our obsolete CF cards, burn real UV EPROMs, salivate for a VGA upgrade, and buy almost exclusively through-hole components... I think USB A and micro are welcome to stay for a while.

 

Besides, you can pry my USB A port-rich MacBook out of my cold, dead hands.

Those adapters are a neat idea, but in this case it would not work with this RPi case, as the connector for the power comes in at the bottom at an angle and would need more height.
