Hi.

A google search suggests this is a psu/charger for a laptop or chrome book I would NOT use it to power a Pi as you have no idea what voltage it will output when connected as it is expecting to connect to a battery in a laptop.

So to make this clear DO NOT CONNECT THIS TO YOUR PI........................................

If you do connect that to your RPi please video the experience and post it on YouTube. We've had 12V stuffed up a RPi, nobody has video'ed 15V doing the same amount of burning.

DO NOT DO THAT.

Some Pi use the following switchmode chip to step down voltage from 5V to others : http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/115/PAM2306-336770.pdf

That pdf states that the maximum input voltage rating is 6.5V. For that reason, make sure you don't supply anything higher then that. If you can be sure that the PSU will output 5V, then you can use it.

Check the Ultra 2 sound card - use our shop instead of Amazon Europe (Amazon USA is live).

Thanks everyone.
I do not wish to burn my Pi, just bought the official PSU for 12e shipping incl. :), easyer then building a 12to5v adapter for me.
