Plugable already has a comprehensive USB charger lineup but we wanted to introduce an inexpensive, yet high quality and compact solution for our Pi customers. Today we’re happy to introduce our USB-C1M, 5V, 2.4A USB power adapter with an included 2 meter 20AWG USB-A to USB Micro-B cable that is perfect for the Pi.
The USB-C1M has had its internal voltage boosted to 5.25V which is required to keep the new Pi models happy when running under heavy load. In addition we’ve included a thicker 20AWG cable to prevent voltage drop from charger to Pi. The C1m is compatible with the Raspberry Pi, Pi2, Pi3, and Pi Zero along with any sub-models (A, A+, B, B+) of the aforementioned models.
Aside from the Raspberry Pi series, this charger can be used for numerous other tasks, anything that requires a small USB power supply. Some examples include USB LED Christmas lights, Television LED bias lighting, charging e-cigarettes, phones or tablets that don’t require special signalling on the data lines (D+, D-), and more Other small IOT (Internet of Things) devices can be powered as well.
