  • great, it can be more readable for the consumers to see "max" 1500 mA or "up to" 1500mA on the product documentation – Sam Jan 20 '16 at 17:23
  • If you attach something hefty to a USB port it may not cover that, but a wifi adapter, mouse, and keyboard should be okay – goldilocks Jan 20 '16 at 17:25
  • It may (or may not) work. Many "chargers" comply with the USB charger spec, which lets voltage drop to 3.6V. There is no indication which spec this is designed to. All USB chargers supply 5V on light load, so should work with a standalone Pi, but may cause problems with heavier loads. – Milliways Jan 20 '16 at 22:37
  • I guess if they say "Charger output voltage: 5.0V" either it is true, or it isn't -- but that's the case with everything in print. I've used various USB style chargers with pis and never had a problem with them. – goldilocks Jan 20 '16 at 22:43
  • i have used the charger and have no problems – Sam Jan 22 '16 at 6:07
