Hi to all,
I have just received my raspberry pi and this is my first post.
I did not purchase any raspberry pi specific power supply. I thought I'd use my mobile phone charger as it uses the same micro usb cable as the raspberry pi. The thing is I have started reading the forums and apparently it is not recommended. I am exploring the following options to use as power supply for the raspberry pi:
1- HTC one S phone charger it says 5V 1A
2- Samsung Galaxy Note Tablet charger 5V 2A
3- Plugging the usb end of the cable to a usb 3.0 computer entry (have no idea of the voltage )
Are any of these options possible? Have any of you successfully used your raspberry pi with any of these chargers (or any other phone/android tablet chargers)?
What will happen if I try these options? Will the raspberry pi break or will it just not start?
By the way, I don't know if it matters but I am in Europe and the plugs are 220V
Thanks a lot in advance!!!!
