Hello, and thanks for the reply.drgeoff wrote:1. The labels on power adaptors, especially those intended for use as chargers rather than power supplies, are often "optimistic". Providing the rated volts and amps simultaneously is often not possible.
2. Power adaptors do fade, especially cheap switched mode types. The electrolytic capacitor(s) on the output of the rectifier loses capacity over time. Result is inability to sustain the voltage when loaded.
It's something OEM, no model or brand.bensimmo wrote:What's the model on the adaptor.
You need to measure on the Pi when the system is under load (i.e. showing the warning symbol).nicolae wrote:I have measured the output exactly at the adapter end, it's 5.12V when leaving. I remember i bought it especially for the RPI 3, but i never saw it draw more than 1A, is there a lightning bolt icon for the amps ? Is the lightning bolt strictly related to voltage?
Yes, they are both the same official power supply (it comes in black and white versions).Not sure if they are the same product, forgive my confusion then.
