RPi2-Is Using 2.5 Amp Power Supply Safe?

Hi,

I am looking for a great MicroUSB power supply for my Raspberry Pi 2.
I found a nice one on eBay but it's 2.5 Amps.
Would 2.5 Amps be safe to use?
I plan on overclocking the RPi2 and thought the extra .5 Amps would be helpful?
Thanks!

RPi2-OK To Overclock With Heatsinks?

Hi,

I am running a Raspberry Pi 2 with current RetroPie O.S.
The Nintendo 64 emulator works but it's a little slow.
Would it be safe to overclock the Raspberry Pi 2 to 1GHz?
(I do have metal heatsinks on the RPi2's CPU and NIC)

Thanks!

Re: Unable To Clone MicroSD Card-Not Enough Free Space?

Hi,

Something is not right.
In GParted, it says:
/dev/sdh1 fat16 boot 57MB 19.56MB used Flags: boot, lba
/dev/sdh2 ext4 retropie 59.42GB 11.02GB used

I know that the retropie partition is using much for space, but it's not reported correctly in GParted?
Thanks!

Re: Unable To Clone MicroSD Card-Not Enough Free Space?

You're running into the "not all 64gb [or any other size] cards are the same size" problem. In general, the sizes of SD cards are somewhat, for lack of a better word, "random". There are a couple of ways of solving your problem - but the easiest one for me to describe (which might not be the same t...

Raspberry Pi 2 - MicroSD Maximum Size?

Hi,

I was wondering what the maximum size of a MicroSD card supported by Raspberry Pi 2?
I am currently using a 64 GB and would like to use a 128 GB, would 128 GB work OK?
