This looks like it meets the specs, but our experience has shown that the cheaper the product the less likely it is to perform to spec - you may be better off using a supply from a reliable vendor.

I would like the option of buying a board without a power supply.

Hi,

I have the default 5VDC and 3A 15Watts power adaptor that came in with the board, can I use it to supply two (2) parallella boards? connecting them in parallel?

kind regards,
Jubert

That would probably work fine when both boards are idle else running light workloads, but I wouldn't recommend it, since one of the most common causes of problems is insufficiently rated power supplies.

Regards,

Andrew
