[Solved] Re: Power warning (yellow lightning bolt)

Ok so yip it was the cable thickness. Dug around for some thinker cable (only had 1.35mm) and viola it all works. Amazing how much one learns by actually doing.

Thanks all :)

Re: Power warning (yellow lightning bolt)

I made a cable to connect to GPIO inputs as per https://www.modmypi.com/blog/how-do-i-p ... spberry-pi. I used some thicker speaker cable, hard to measure diameter but it looks heavy duty enough.

Same issue.

Re: Power warning (yellow lightning bolt)

Hi all thanks for that. I check the PSU and it's delivering 5V.

The power lead though is very thing. I took a standard cable and cut it.

Would recommendations do you have on how one creates a suitable power lead?

Power warning (yellow lightning bolt)

I am using the following power supply: https://www.jaycar.co.nz/mean-well-70w- ... y/p/MP3289 which delivers 5V and enough AMPS.

Any ideas as to why the power warning might be happening.

I am feeding it using a USB cable that I have spliced into the power supply.

Re: Max Amps?

Thanks. The reason that I was wanting this PSU is that the entire project needs a 12V feed as well and so I was hoping to kill two birds with one stone. Oh well, so be it :)

Re: Max Amps?

Thanks for that. It looks like the voltage of this power supply can peak at 5.5V while the Raspberry can only take 5.25. Is there some sort of circuit/filter that I could put between the two so that the voltage does not go above 5.25V?

Max Amps?

I have the following power supply https://www.aliexpress.com/item/60W-Dua ... 35968.html

The 5V option is rated for 4A with a range of 0.3A-6A.

Will this cook my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ or should it be fine?
