Adafruit.com [adafruit.com] is currently running a sale that discounts the Raspberry Pi 4B 4GB RAM from $55 down to $46.75 ($8.25 savings) with the promo code ADATHANKS which is pretty good considering that Raspberry Pi's rarely go on sale. The promo code also works on almost all other products on their website so if you need any other things it increases the discount amount. The discount code also works on the other Raspberry Pi's as well.

Some suggested Accessories are:The only thing that some might find off putting is that shipping costs money but all the official shops on the Raspberry Pi website also charge shipping. The lowest quote i got for shipping on this website was for $5.22 via First Class Mail but I recommend going with UPS Ground which quoted me for $10.15, Priority Mail was also an option for $8.85 but since its close to the UPS rate I might as well go with them since they handle packages more carefully than USPS and have a better tracking system.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I decided to post some useful YouTube videos for people that dont know too much about Raspberry Pi and need help deciding which one they want to buy. Feel free to add any videos you might think are helpful for the community to this wiki. I didnt post any Pi-Hole tutorial videos because im not sure if its against the site tos.

This man received 8 negative clicks for what I felt to be a funny and thoughtful response. This forum's members lowkey drop passive aggressive cancerous judgements which I don't understand.

No offense intended, but you don't sound like the kind of audience this type of device is intended for. These are more for tinkerers than for easy plug-n-play solutions (although once you're comfortable with them, it's not hard to use them for similar purposes). If I'm misreading you, I apologise.

They mostly use Linux, BTW.

Seems like the RPi power supplies should work for any phone that also uses USB C and requires 15.3 watts or less (e.g. Pixel 3). That a fair statement?

I might be wrong, but for most modern phones that can draw power higher than 12W (2.4A) they do some sort of negotiation with the power supply as a safety measure before drawing more than 1 amp. Additionally USB PD and Qualcomms QuickCharge also negotiate voltages up to 12v. Thus if you try charging a Pixel with a Pi Power supply you might get that "charging slowly" message because it can't tell if it's safe to draw more power.

Thanks!! Takes the sting out of tax and shipping. Didn't order a 4, as I already have one running as a Plex server. And I ready also have two atomic Pi's. One is running as an airprint server for my old brother wifi printer (it needed x86 drivers on Linux and wouldn't work with pi/raspian) and the other is not yet gainfully employed. However couldn't resist buying a pi-hole kit and an extra pi zero wh and a couple of accessories.

I would probably stick with the official power connector, its very easy to fry electronics if you give them too much electricity. I once blew up a portable media player that looked like a Playstation PSP because I used a universal charger that had different wattage settings and I set it too high, the portable media player made a popping sound and then a black cloud of smoke came out of it and it wouldnt turn on after that.
I don't think that's what happened. You probably set your universal power supply to the wrong voltage, or possibly even your polarity was reversed. With a USB cable, you don't control either of those. With these RPI, the only thing that can happen is that your power supply doesn't supply enough amperage.

Sticking with the manufacturer's power adapter is good advice and not discounting your earlier experience.

However, if the adapter is the correct size, shape and polarity and the voltage matches, the device will only consume the wattage it needs, not all that is available.

Some devices will not charge or run unless provided enough power (watts). And some manufacturers put identifying logic in their chargers so that devices may refuse to operate unless paired, or will remind you that they are happier, with their own charger.

So, with a USB-C charger and device that requires charging via its USB-C port, we are very safe plugging the two together. It may work, be slow, or not work at all, but there shouldn't ever be popping or black smoke.

Good advice. Once the magic smoke gets out of the electronics you can never get it back in.
