Rock64 charger availability
#1
I just received my Rock64 and I thought I had also ordered a power adapter (UK), but I didn't and checking my order I didn't actually order one.  If I buy one through the store here then the shipping from China will cost more than the product itself. However I can't a single 3.5mm barrel charger (5V, 3A) in online in the UK, it seems to be a very strange type of power cable.

Does anyone have idea where to get one in the UK?

I have found some USB to 3.5mm barrel charger, so if I found a USB plug which is 5v 3A would that work?

You have two possible options.

You could go with an adapter like this (best quality one I found on a cursory search of amazon.co.uk), or you could go with the USB-to-3.5mm cable.

Whatever you go with, make sure its connector is 3.5x1.35mm, and the cable is fairly thick. Thin cables will cause voltage drop and seemingly random issues under load.

How did you find that on amazon I spent ages trying to find the correct size plug which was also 3A (not 2A)

Thanks Luke, il try the amazon cable but if that doesn’t work then I’ll take you up on the offer (I’m in north London so it’s a bit of a trek to west london)
