Does the buck converter have multiple ports? Although the total output might be 5a, it is possible that each port is rated for 2.1-2.4a.

It has two output sockets - round and usb.
I'll check their wiring..

One more thing I encountered:
raspi-config is basically useless
When raspi-config is run it's looking for config.txt not in boot folder but in boot/firmware (which doesn't even exist).

It has been running on the 12-5V converter for more than 24 hours now without any issues.
Today was even hotter than yesterday. CPU temperature: 56C at 5pm.
Not sure what was going on yesterday

I noticed that the upgrade was posted recently.
KDE instead of Mate - that should have been announced more loudly!
I just asked this question earlier today - is there any way to upgrade without re-flashing the whole thing?
I guess not.

Tried 1.4.4. UI feels slower than Mate but everything seems to be working. RTC now works! Didn't in 1.4.3

Right, KDE still needs more tweaking to make the experience smoother.

Jasem - you are going to stay with KDE from now on, right? I wonder why you went away from Mate..
(I just recently learned what Pluma was. Now it's Dolphin)

KDE is the natural environment for KStars, since KStars is a KDE application and uses its library and services...etc. With RPi4, KDE is usable now for the most part.
