Do you have an ETA for further stock of Rpi5 power supplies?

Thank you.

Hi @Thomas263738 - welcome to the forums :slight_smile:

The official USB PD 27W power supply currently has no ETA because it’s awaiting certification for use in Australia. Click the ‘sign-up to get notified’ button to stay up to date.


I regret that this isn’t a logistics problem (that we’re really good at) but a certification-level bottleneck that we have no control over. Rest assured we’ll have them ASAP once the cert clears.

Received one of these the other day. So far pretty good.

The cable is on the correct side for Australian plugs and the size doesn’t interfere with the socket beside it. The on/off switch is easily accessible without removing the power supply, unlike the Pi 4 supply.
And the boot message is no longer present.

Overall a pretty good design.


PS … also it will Fast charge my phone, Bonus. (not Super Fast, no 20V, but good enough)


This supply will NOT work if the device does not have USB-C PD capability.
Recently I bought a Power-Z KT002 PD Tester device. I am finding it to be a very useful piece of test equipment. It supports USB-A and USB-C and has a PD option. Even has a basic oscilloscope screen.

Connecting the KT002 to the power supply there is no output with the PD disabled.
When PD is enabled power is supplied.
I am in the early phases of learning to use it and have not check any of the PD stuff.

The takeaway for me is someone may try to use this power supply for a non USB-C PD device and think the power supply is broken, or when using a cheap USB-C cable. For hobbyists, projects using a supply like this will have to be USB-C PD compliant.

The Makerverse USB-C LiPo charger and RP2040-Zero work ok. So the pulldown resistors on the CC1 & CC2 lines are all that is needed. As a hobbyists I will have to keep this in mind if using USB-C connector to supply power.
