Link USB power strips for a cluster?
#1
So Im thinking of building a Pine64 cluster for a homelab over a Pi for a couple reasons, also being able to order more than one of the same type.
Their website sells USB to barrel power adapters awesome! But I need a power strip that can output 5V 3A for at least four USB ports.
I am not honestly that familiar with power usage and finding pieces but I see a lot of 2.4Amps with a max total of 12Amps. Out of a USB power strip. Is 3A really just 2.4?

If you have one floating around, you might also use an atx pc power supply. On the 5v rail, they can normally deliver 20A. A molex to micro usb cable is included.
