Pick one of those for the usb c cable

Very interesting. I'm currently using a USB-A type supply (only 2.4 A), simply because I was worried that if I bought a USB-C supply it might not like the Pi and supply no power or limit to low current mode.

I have had a couple of times where the Pi has stopped responding then found the red power led is off which seems to suggest low power supply.


you want at least 5 amps at 5v

I'm doing things a little different than most. I'm using POE. A Gigabit Ethernet POE injector and a POE to USB-C splitter . With 100' of Shielded, waterproof Ethernet cable, I've had no problems so far.

Well my "in the field" is a little different. MY wife and I live/travel in a 40' motorhome. I run the ethernet cable out a window and control the mount from inside the RV.
