I wouldn't particularly worry about wearing it out. Not wearing out as such, but damage the bloody thing/ bend a pin or damage it, or cause solder failure of the socket on the board. It does happen. I have the same sockets and plugs on my motorcycle intercom headsets. Over the years I have had to f...

Think PSU is 2.5 amp from memory Won't be using the inline switch to power it off until it has shut down properly. I'd say an inline switch is a very good idea. It means once you have shut down properly via sudo shutdown now or GUI button, then you can remove power form the board to swap ouT SD card...

Re: Adding a 5V Fan to a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and having control of it

It's a bad idea to plug the fan connectors directly to the RPI GPIO pins because the fan needs a burst of current when it starts running and it's also dangerous when it stops because it may send a harmful current to the ground pin Yes, it is a very bad idea to plug a fan (or other, high-current ind...
