Universal Power Supply
#1
The power supply consist of the actual power-supply together with a switchable US style plug xor European style plug.

The actual plug looks not very expensive. Would it be possible to ship both plugs or offer them at least as a separate order? Having both plugs can be quite useful for international travel.

I sure wish there was a UK slide on plug part for it since I now have two of the (EU) fitted Pine wall warts - one for Pinebook and t'other for the Pinebook Pro that both need another "shaver" style adapter for UK mains sockets.

I have come across quite a few of these "universal" wall warts with the slide-on plug part but all of the ones I have come across so far are not interchangeable Sad

Other plugs are available for the adapters on the Pine64 Store. All of the 5V 3A adapters for Rock64, Pinebook, Pinebook Pro, and Pine H64 are the same unit.

I checked the Pine store - essentially only two 5v 3a PSU "kits" are available...

you have the PSU that was included with the Pinebooks with either US or EU adapter in the store (with both adapters?) for $6.99
you have an "international" PSU with a whole bunch of clip-on plug adapters (including UK) for $8.99

The "international" or even a UK version was never offered with the Pinebooks - is there any possibility of purchasing *just* a pair of UK 3-pin clip-on plug adapter parts?

(I have already got two PSU "bodies" with EU plug adapter which need another 3-to-2 pin adapter plug to use them in UK sockets) Sad

I'm just using my USB 3A fast charger from my smartphone that comes with a USB C cable to charge it. Very handy!

My plastic bag containing the charger was torn and the plug was missing. I was able to get a EU plug from an nearby electronics store, I think they are fairly common.

Result!

Just checked with the Pine sales team and they will sell me a couple of UK slide-on adapters for my Pinebook & Pinebook Pro power units that originally came with EU 2-pin plug parts. I only had a choice of US or EU adapter fitting with the power unit included when ordering the Pinebooks.

A dollar each plus postage. The ten dollar postage is a bit "ouch" but it makes them more usable to me.

Thanks to the sales team Smile
