I have a "Raspberry Pi 3 Model B UK" and I have an adapter with 5V-3A.

Can I use this adapter for this device?

    Yes, that will work. Why are you unsure? – Steve Robillard Sep 19 '16 at 19:43
  • @SteveRobillard In raspberry pi site, Recommended POWER REQUIREMENTS is 2.5A. – M. Rostami Sep 19 '16 at 19:59

    I think if you read it suggests at least a 2.5 amp supply. Second the Pi will only draw as much current as it needs, the 2.5 Amp recommendation is based on somewhat of a worse case scenario (i.e., unpowered external drives, wifi dongles etc.). – Steve Robillard Sep 19 '16 at 20:07

    Best to do a test yourself witha a multimeter to make sure the adaptor is putting out at least 4.8V - some aftermarket adaptors are notiously bad. But the 3A suggests you've made a good purchase – dbmitch Sep 19 '16 at 20:18

According to Question's comments, Adapter with 3A in output made a good purchase and it's worked.
