    Hello,

    I’m a complete newb, so sorry if this is something simple. I just got my ControlBlock, and I just noticed that there is a micro USB power port on the ControlBlock. So my question is do you need to plug in a micro USB power port into the RaspberryPi and ControlBlock, or just the ControlBlock. Either way what are the power requirements for the ControlBlock? I couldn’t find anything on the site or forum.

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    You only need to use the micro USB plug on the ControlBlock. You should have a USB adapter with at least 2 A.

    Thanks for the info. I also figured out that you need to have a power switch wired up to the ControlBlock in order for it to turn on. You can also apparently go into the config file and turn this setting off.
