Hi everyone :)

Just got my pi thursday :D And so I had my parents go to the store to get the power plugin and everything. They came back with a:
enercell 5VDC 1000mA AC to USB power adapter. It says on the back "...make sure it requires 5VDC and no more than 1000mA"
I just need a USB to micro USB cord
Would that one be alright? I just want to make sure, I don't want a burnt raspberry pi :roll: :lol: :mrgreen:

That looks good - let hope it performs to the quoted spec.

That one sounds ok but it depends if it delivers what it says. But either way, it won't burn out your pi unless the voltage is significantly above spec.

I couldn't find any reviews of it online. It was $20 though so it better be a good charger ;)

Thanks for confirming it that it would work :)
