Re: ETA for Official POE Hat for 3B+

I'm experiencing the same issue as nightwatchman, with the same Ubiquiti Unifi 16P 150W PoE+ switch and a Sandisk Ultra Fit 32GB USB flash drive plugged in the RPi (from which it boots and runs Raspbian). I bought that switch after having difficulties powering a Ubiquiti in-wall AP with my former L...

Re: ETA for Official POE Hat for 3B+

Must be getting close.

The org's website just updated the PoE page and added the Product Brief and mechanical drawings

And it puts out a full 2.5A

Re: ETA for Official POE Hat for 3B+

Thanks for the reply. I'll check into that.

So you're saying that this option would require neither a PoE hat nor a switch?

I love DIY. Most pi people do. As long as someone has done the steps before I can usually cobble together pieces

I'm hoping a Pi Engineer can respond with a new timeframe or rough ETA for the release of the POE Hat. I remember when the Pi 3B+ was officially released they talked about a POE Hat being available possibly in late May. Right now and since then, the page continues to say "Coming Soon" Does anyone ha...

I think you need to invest in a better power supply.

I may be wrong, but I can see no other reason why your SD card should fail so consistently
