Re: Polyfuse reduces voltage input

Yea I've got one of the made in china boards. Hoping to grab one of the UK made ones though if they ever make it down to NZ.

Re: Possible Low Voltage Solution

Yep ive got one of the made in China ones.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't backfeeding it through the USB port effectively the same as powering it through the GPIO?

Re: Possible Low Voltage Solution

What if you don't have a revision 1 board but one of the new ones purchased a week ago and are having the same issues? Powering through the GPIO whilst being an acceptable solution is not something everyone should have to resort to if there is an issue with the main polyfuse

Re: Polyfuse reduces voltage input

Ive been having the same problem, 512mb board running Raspbian. When sitting there powered on but not running any videos or audio etc Ill get approx 4.72v across the test points. When I load a video or anything that is slightly intensive the voltage across the test points will drop to as low as 4.62...
