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.
