Will this buck output be enough to run raspberry pi 4/5?
DC-DC Buck Converter 6~14V to 5V/8A
Technically it should be. The Pi 4 and 5 both ask for 5.1V so you may experience some low power warnings. Power in is about equal to power out so also consider your source here.
Jacks spot on the money, the Pi 4 is more than happy to be powered up a few different ways (5V through the pins, or USB).
But the Pi 5 is a bit more tempermental, if powered up with a non-PD source (this board, even though it can, in theory, deliver up to 8A) will still limit the USB output current as the power source hasnt communicated its max output.
With a bit more information about your project we should be able to help out a bit more!
Hi Liam and Jack
I’d like to power via 12v from a vehicle. There used to be an adjustable buck but I couldn’t see it the website.
