I have a Raspberry Pi Model B, and I would like to plug it in a VGA computer monitor. I have been reading about this subject, but I am no expert in electronics, and so I am afraid I might end up being one of those cases where the Pi components burn.
The Pi's power adapter is a 5V 1200mA, and I have a dongle type HDMI to VGA adapter, as seen in the forums (search for the text "dongle" and you'll get right to the picture). This adapter claims to be a 5V 200mA adapter.
Given that the Pi's D1 diode has a safe limit of 200mA output, is it safe to use this adapter, or am I still subject to risk and luck?
The Pi grabs 500mA for itself, the HDMI adapter grabs another 200mA, and I intend to connect a 100mA keyboard, yielding a total of 800mA, which should still be in the safe 1A limit the Pi can handle. Besides that, I think I would occasionally plug in a USB pen drive to save my work.
