I'm making an enclosure box for my pi + a powered hub (4 usb).
I would like to use only one power supply for these two boards.
The pi needs about 1000mA .
The hub needs about 700mA (it is the maximum power supply given by the power supply of the hub).
Can I use a 1700 - 2000 mA power supply (5V of course) to do that ? (the hub and the pi would be plugged in parallel to share the intensity).
I'm asking this question because I'm a newbie in electricity and because Premier Farnell suggests a power supply that would be between 700 and 1200mA (so less than 1700mA).
I could find information on the wiki here :
and here : http://elinux.org/RPi_Hardware_Basic_Setup#Power_Supply
But there is no mention of maximum intensity.
edit : here is the hub I bought http://cgi.ebay.fr/Hub-USB-2-4-ports-ha ... 526wt_1161
