Raspberry Pi 27W USB-C PD Power Supply - Black

The black Raspberry Pi 27W USB-C PD (Power Delivery) Power Supply will deliver a maximum of 5.1V, 5A enabling the Raspberry Pi 5 to power a wider range of peripherals. The total power drawn from the four USB ports on Raspberry Pi 5 is limited by default to a nominal 600mA; this limit is automatically increased to a nominal 1.6A when the USB-C PD Power Supply is detected.

The USB-C PD Power Supply is also capable of delivering 3A @ 9V, 2.25A @ 12V, and 1.8A @ 15V to PD-compatible products, making it a good cost-effective power supply for many general-purpose, non-Raspberry Pi use cases.

We only supply the North American plug configuration at this time.

    Are the raspberry pi 27w USBC power supply only UK wall plug or do they work with USA 110v wall plugs?

      This is the North American version. We'll be updating the photos soon to reflect that.

        Good to know but the item name or description should reflect that too.

    I ordered one of these: https://a.co/d/6eBhQ5s to feed my Rpi-5 from a mobile 13.5VDC source. I'll update this comment once I confirm it actually works.

    Maybe Sparkfun can offer a similar product for those folks who want to take their Rpi-5 out in the field.

    Update - I've connected 13.5VDC to the DC -> USB-C PD adapter above and it is happily and coolly powering my Rpi-4. The little board seems to deliver.

Not capable of powering a Raspberry Pi 5 properly

Rather than risk an underpowered power supply, I bought the official one. That seems to have been a mistake. Even with this power supply, Raspberry Pi OS shows the alert notification: "The power supply is not capable of supplying 5A."

It's rated for 5A @ 5.1v (listed on supply itself); can you verify that's the case?

Head to www.sparkfun.com/returns if so for a replacement
