    Hi,
    i just received the opi. I would like to put the opi next to my router and there is no usb port free.
    What kind of power supply is possible for the opi? What are the specifications so I can look at the local hardware dealer for equipment?

    Best regards

    Hi Hans,

    You can use a standard smart phone charger, 5V, 500mA minimum.

      Hi Pa,

      thanks for the information. Is the power supplied only by the usb port or is there another possibility?

    There appears to be a power connector on the unit. What are the specs for that?

    These is as gpeacock noted a power connector as well that can be used.
    Same spec for power as for USB, 5V min 500mA, center pin is positive.

    If you take a look on the label on the backside, there is a note on this as well.

    Thanks for the info about the minimum being 5V, 500mA. My smart phone charger says 5V, 2A. Is that to much? I’m wondering the maximum so I don’t brick my OPI 🙂

    Hi trstone,

    There is no upper limit. OPI will use only what it needs, thus the lower bound. 2A will be fine!

    Tor,

    Thank you for answering. I know the question may have seemed silly. I just wanted to make sure.

    Thanks again for all your hard work and make sure you have a fantastic day!

    Respectfully,
    Tom

    One suggestion: Add a “What’s Included” section to the OPI ordering page. I was preparing to order a USB plug A/C adapter and USB cable to power my OPI, but when I received the OPI I was happily surprised to find that a USB cable and Ethernet cable were included. So it might be helpful to note on the ordering page that the OPI comes with a USB cable and Ethernet cable.
