I have been looking into multiple ways to power numerous rapsberry pi's from one power source.
I am not an electrical engineer and as such some methods I have researched online are less than ideal, such as modifying my psu to support a usb cable.
Would a product such as this usb front panel allow me to draw power directly from my unused 550w psu (assuming the 24 pin connector is bridged) and the molex cable is connected (without the usb gpio pins being connected to a motherboard)?
more information on my requirements incase there are any valid answers to help me solve this issue that arent directly related to the product in question:
- I do not want to use a USB hub that is powered directly from a wall socket or from some other usb method.
- I would ideally want to power 4+ rpi's from my unused 550w psu - ideally without any soldering.
- I would be open to using the gpio pins if there were a simple method to unify each pi's gpio's to a single power source.
