Which cheap power supplies to buy
« on: September 07, 2016, 09:53:33 am »
I am using wall adapters to power my OAK boards. There are tons of them on eBay. Should I choose 1A or 2A models? Do supplies like these provide clean enough power for the Oak?

1A model

2A model

If you're still interested in an answer: I would advise not to buy any of those generic chargers from Ebay. They're usually unreliable and can be dangerous. If you want to get one from China, I'd suggest buying a charger from a brand like Blitzwolf, those are reliable. You could also buy a charger locally, just make sure it's made by a brand that is at least decently known, like Belkin or what have you, and not from a dollar store. 1A would be sufficient.
