Syncwire charger
#1
I bought one of these on Amazon
https://www.syncwire.com/collections/wal...ll-charger

it has two output ports, each of which can deliver 3 amps.

and also this H barrel cable
https://store.pine64.org/product/2-meter...wer-cable/

The reasons that I bought this:-

Despite being an ISO PBP they sent me a US charger with it.
The Syncwire one comes with USA, UK and Euro pins.
As it has two ports I can charge a phone and the PBP from one device and one power socket which is useful for travelling.  The PBP is basically becoming my default travel laptop due to it's slimness and light weight.
It's also useful for powering a Raspberry Pi.

It seems to work well.

an update.

It seems that if I leave the PBP on so that the battery becomes totally flat, the charger that Pine64 supplied will recharge it, but the syncwire will not.
Once there is some charge in the battery the Syncwire seems to then start working.

I am not sure why yet.
