Re: Is my cell phone charger good enough to supply power to my raspberry pi

RPis with the BCM2835 and BCM2836 SoC may be powered by some (not all) reputable phone charger as long as it's rated capacity complies with the board requirements. The BCM2837 and BCM2837B0 ones are more power hungry, and phone chargers cannot keep up with the requirements of the board. Remember, ph...

Re: Rpi stops working well after some time

Did you try doing a fresh install of Raspbian on another microSD card to see if it boots from there?

If it boots from the fresh install, there is something in the old microSD card that is causing the problem.

Re: How to copy files from SD Card to SD card for Raspberry pi 3b+

You must be running Raspbian Stretch, updated and upgraded.

Otherwise "...all bets are off..." as another prominent forum member used to post.

The SD Card Copier is usually available on the Desktop version of Raspbian.

Not seen that on Ubuntu or others (please correct me on this)
