Description: USB is being implemented as a power connection standard more and more these days, but you don’t always have a computer on hand so how are you going to power all of your sweet USB devices? How about a high quality switching ‘wall wart’? This AC to DC power supply will do 5V at 1A! They’re switch mode power supplies which means the output is regulated to 5V (no more 14V outputs!).
These have a standard USB ‘A’ connector for the output so you can power your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc. through a USB cable. Any device that uses a USB cable for charging or power can be powered with this supply.
Check out our Unregulated Power Supply Tutorial!
Note: This works with 100-240VAC inputs.

I have used this Wall Charger for both my Samsung Galaxy S5 and a Raspberry PI. I started by removing the plastic baggie, placed the prongs into a wall receptacle, inserted a USB cable, and connected my Raspberry… Boom! it booted up. I similarly connected the USB cable to my phone.. POW! the lightning bolt appeared on the battery icon in the right screen corner. I’ve been using this item since January 23, so far no wavering and no quitting… a true super-power. I recommend this item if you need to send power through a USB cable.
