Note/Warning:
I got the same item #9447501 (actually 3 of them because of sd effect on May 4th deal). I have used two of them, and my pi3 still shows a bolt.

Powering a Raspberry Pi. Not sure what part of the title is confusing.

Almost certainly not.

1) Pi requires a 2.5A PSU, which is more than the vast majority of wall chargers.

2) Most wall chargers are just that - chargers. There's a battery in there, so the quality of the current isn't as important. This is just a PSU for a device with no battery, so the power has to be extremely clean and reliable (to put it simply). Most wall chargers aren't designed that way.

It's just a micro-usb charger but 2.5A instead of the commonly found 2.0A. Both will power a Raspberry Pi fine, but if you intend to overclock, use all your USB ports, or constantly use your Pi, 2.5A is recommended.



uhh, no.

FYI: ground delivery on this to NY was $4.90, which leaves it as less expensive than the official PSU from Arrow, even after their 30% off coupon was applied (I just paid $8.32+ tax this morning for that).

This is a pretty great deal for anyone who just bought a Pi but didn't get a PSU for it.
