Powerblock Pi4 Power Supply Connector

  • Re: Powerblock Pi4

    Hello! I received the PowerBlock I ordered on 9/12, which is supposed to be compatible with the Pi4. However, the USB power supply for the Pi4 is USB C, which is not the connector on the PowerBlock. Can I use an adapter without blowing up anything? Also, do the drivers need to be installed before installing the hardware? Thanks! (apologies if this has been asked before, but I could not find it in the forums.)

    You can either use a USB micro cable and according power supply or use a USB C cable with a USB micro adapter. Both is possible and you will not blow anything!

    You should install the drivers after installing the hardware.

    Hope that helps!
