Phihong is a good brand, just make sure that the DC jack is microUSB type.

I use this for my Raspberry Pi 2: http://www.amazon.com/Aukey-Desktop-Char...2C+5+ports

And the idea is to connect to Pine 64+ 2Gb to it also.

I think that you could use less than 2 Amps but you wouldn't have the full capability of the board 2.1 Amps is just the recommend power supply

Hello ! 


   Would an ipad mini charger work ?

I think iPads have proprietary connectors not standard micro usb, so I don't think so.

Th iiPad charger can work, just not using the lighting cable and change with good micro USB cable.

Has anyone tried a 1500 ma charger. I can't get the board to boot up get a red light every time i plug it in Only have chargers that are 5 V 1500 ma

What kind of charger is that? "Intelligent" charger?
I suspect these may not work that well since they negotiate with the device, then provide the A required.
And if they cannot determine what kind of device you have, they will only provide 500ma to the device, which in this case, is too low to power the Pine.

I have an Anker 5 port intelligent charger and I'm pretty positive that charger will not be able to power the Pine.

Will be using my iPad's charger instead with a Blackberry's microUSB cable. It's rated this:
10W USB power adapter
Input: 100-240V~, 0.45A 50-60Hz
Output: 5.1V, 2.1A

Edit: I was dreaming. 1500ma = 1.5A, which is not sufficient to power the Pine. Get something else please.
As for the above information, I'm leaving it intact "for information" to anyone who has queries about intelligent chargers.

1.5A are more than enough for normal workloads. But as you already pointed out using 'intelligent chargers' that provide 500mA max to 'dumb' devices and more only if the device in question speaks any of the USB power delivery languages (which the Pine does not on its DC-IN connector) might be part of the problem.

The other problem are USB cables that show resistance way too high (which the Pine's AXP803 PMIC is able to tolerate somewhat but will lead to crashes/deadlocks when sudden load peaks happen).

A big 'thank you' to the Raspberry Pi foundation that invented one of the most moronic ideas ever 4 years ago (unfortunately picked up by many other board makers later): To be able to power a device reliably through Micro USB. The problems are well known and unless you use a dedicated good PSU with fixed cable you can never be sure whether you suffer from powering problems or not when you run in any sort of stability problems.

We did some heavy testing the last days with workloads no normal user will ever be able to create (testing reliability and voltage settings for Pine). Without the ability to power the Pine also through the Euler connector I wouldn't been able to test the higher clockspeeds:

No worries: You won't need heatsinks for normal useage. This is all just a test setup to be able to deadlock the board when overclocked. But fortunately the Pine folks already started a collaboration with a heatsink vendor and will provide one later that fits on SoC/DRAM. This is just to illustrate where to inject 5V (red) and GND (black) on the Euler connector.
