Compatible power adapter?

Hey guys!

Just got and built my DevTerm. The manual says “Use ONLY 5V-2A charger.”

Closest I have is 5V-3A, for my Pixel 2. Will this work? Surely the DevTerm has built in power protection?

It will work fine. As long as you use the same voltage you are usually good.

One thing I noticed during testing is that the DevTerm will draw more than 2A if it’s available. Hooked into a benchtop supply, mine hit a sustained draw of just under 2.8A if I was loading the system while also charging the batteries.

That said, it didn’t appear to cause any problems - nothing melted, at least - so a 3A supply should be fine, and should allow you to charge the batteries as quickly as possible while also using the DevTerm.

I am using an iPad Pro USB-C charger and cable. No problems.
