Ok so i am thinkimg of buyimg a Raspberry Pi 3 b+ and I wad wondering if I could use the micro usb from a ps4 controller charger or if I would need to buy a new one(if that’s the case please link me to some where I can buy it at the right voltage)
Battery chargers are not required to maintain precise voltage regulation, because that is not needed for charging batteries (in fact, some charging algorithms require voltage changes during charging). Because of that, many will not maintain a stable 5V under load.
I used to have a "5V/2.4A" phone charger that dropped well below 5V at only a 1A load. It worked fine for charging my phone and tablet, but it was a lousy Raspberry Pi power supply. In addition, the battery in a PS4 controller is likely quite small, and I can't imagine the charger would output anywhere near the 3A recommended for powering a Raspberry Pi 4B.
So using your PS4 controller charger is not recommended, and would probably not work well.
The official Raspberry Pi4 power supply is affordable, and of course, works great.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
