Power Via usb
Hi another question I want to be able to power my rock64 by usb so I can plug direct into USB power supply. Will this adapter from store work or is there more to it? Also will 5v 2.4a be sufficient enough to power the rock64? Thanks.

Officially the R64 requires 3A 5V, but I've managed to power it on with less than that. The question is what load will it be under and what peripherals will be connected.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Ok great. I just use rock64 as media player usually only have usb connected that I play movies off however I am going to add dac which may affect things somewhat?
