5x USB 25W charger

Wed Jul 16, 2014 3:04 pm

I came across this when looking for something completely different, and my first thought was "Hey, power five Pis at once!"

The "iPad" labeled ports supposedly support 2.1A, which I think would be enough for the new B+ Pi.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00EJA28ES is a better bet, in my opinion - all ports do everything (that I've tried to make them do, anyway). I haven't tried five Pi, but it happily runs one and a fussy power-hungry tablet (that has not accepted anything but this and manufacturers originals) and a couple of mobile phones all at once. All my family's mobile paraphernalia now charge off one box, simultaneously, and I don't see why it wouldn't do multiple pi.

I've got one of the Anker units as per achrn and 2nd his recommendation. Think it's a great piece of kit, has never fails to supply enough juice for anything I've ever plugged in. Had 2 Pi's running before, though never tried 5.

Using the 40W Anker too. ATM it's powering 3 Pi (Model B rev 1 & 2) while it's also regularly charging other equipment (phones, battery packs, etc) at the same time.
