Hello! I am making a robotics project with a Pi 3 and this servo motor hat: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2327
I want to power two servos, like so: https://www.adafruit.com/product/169
I will evidently need two power supplies, one for the Pi and one for the hat. An external powerbar sounds like the most straight forward choice and indeed that would be sufficient. However, I was wondering if an alternative choice exists, such that I could have only one power plug exiting the robots body. I'm thinking of using this: https://www.cableleader.com/14-power-co ... 5-15p.html
My question is that would it be ok to have everything (Pi + Hat + transformers + splitter) plugged-in inside a wooden box?
Is there a reason why this plan wouldn't work, like concerns of overheating?
Is there any other options to consider, like another IC module that can combine power supplies?
