I am wondering, what is the maximum current that should be provided if powering the entire Raspberry Pi board over the +5V pins on the 26-pin GPIO header?
This is on the Rev 2.0 board, where the USB polyfuses have been removed. The input power obviously bypasses the 1.1A polyfuse on the normal USB power input. It has been said separately, that providing 2.5A from the USB-A ports should be safe, but there was no mention whether the PCB traces are the same width going to the GPIO header.
Is it safe to input 2.5A on the +5V pin, having the Raspberry Pi take 700mA and each USB port giving out 900mA? If not, what is a safe value? It is assumed, that inputting 1.1A on the +5V pin should atleast be supported, but that leaves only 200mA for each USB port.
I would love to get a definitive answer, as I have already received guesswork answers saying that it should probably be safe.
Thank you in advance.
