Raspberry pi power to spare

Reviewed by: Graheme Wilson - 02 October 2019
Finally a power supply for the pi that can support my portable hard drive backup. I have been using a raspberry pi for a month now alongside an ailing desktop computer. All was well until I connected my backup usb drive. The pi did not have the power to support this essential peripheral. This is the ideal pi power pack.
