Power for the 7'' display

Wed Dec 16, 2015 7:29 pm

Hi

I just got my new display and in the setup it says that I need an 2A power source. I have a usb wall charger that delivers 5V and 3.1A.
Is it correct that I need at least 2A and that 3.1A is not a problem? The display will draw as much as it needs and not more, right?

Scroll down to powering the display.

You can plug your power supply into the display and then use the display to power your Pi.
