The right stuff

It’s important to buy the right type of power supply for your Raspberry Pi board. While something like the CanaKit Raspberry Pi 4 Power Supply isn’t going to fit the micro USB port on an older model, with adapters and determination anything is possible.

The consequences of supplying the wrong power can be dramatic — as in nothing works at all — or sporadic and low voltage can cause unknown errors because the board just doesn’t get enough juice. Thankfully, it’s very difficult to deliver too much power with a reputable power supply, which is why the one you have for your quick-charge capable phone shouldn’t be used. Stick with a nice, friendly 5v and 3A for the 3 B+ or 3.5A for v. 4 and you won’t have any issues.
