Topic: ChUSBy - Chumby with USB Power Supply

So, as I wait on the replacement power adapter for my Chumby One, I decided to attempt another alternative option and create a ChUSBy!

USB chargers typically power 5v with a variety of amperages.

My first attempt was to plug into an iPad charger which provides 5v 2.1A - this was met with a boot-loop cycle. Must not be a consistent 5v...

I tried a variety of others, but they were under amped.

My final working attempt was with a smart-switching 5 port Anker charger.

Success! ChUSBy achieved. Hopefully this will carry me until the "Official" adapter arrives.

very nice.  I've got that same anker adapter... pretty nice gadget.

Cleaning up any loose bits and bytes.
