Sorry....i read the bits of thread again

So maybe people are using correct spec "phone chargers" but the Pi does not like the chargers....?

But surely what your saying can't be the case?. The Pi foundation marketed the whole Pi
on the very notion that it can be powered off many existing Cell phone chargers....could this be wrong?(surely not). Pi can also be powered over USB right?   (Pi)

i just think in the case of this thread it's a one thread situation. Your "reply angle" while not only incorrect, seems to infer doomed design.

The power supply for the Raspberry Pi is a standard micro-usb charger. This is the de-facto charger for most mobile phones as well as other electronic devices. I have dozens of USB adapters in the house that are suitable. This includes laptop power supplies, my Android (HTC) phone charger, Asus tablet charger, USB hub and more. The minimum requirement is that the supply must be capable of at least 700mA.

There are several chargers on Amazon starting from about £2

anyway......there is no point arguing. The points are clear

Hello

That is super. Tinycore available for the Rasberry Pi. Really interesting project and offerring. Also
it's free.

There is a nice version of Puppy Linux for rasberry Pi. It's in Alpha 4 stage but does contain
Chromium browser with Flash. (among many other things)

People say they are the only thing that would survive a nuclear haulacaust?  (not sure how the Rasberry pi would fair there)
