I'm planning on building a device that has the following requirements:
- 4x devices that are rated as 5v (1.5 amps normal load, however during high loads can require upto 2 amps)
- 1x raspberry pi
I've sourced a power supply that takes 240 AC mains supply and provides 5v @ 8 Amps.
My plan is to connect all the devices in parallel.
My questions are as follows:
- Is this power supply a good idea?
- When the system is idle, will this be an issue, i.e. the devices are not drawing maximum current?
This is the kind of power supply I'm planning on using, I don't know if that helps?
