Pyramid Pi comes with USB-A to USB-C cable included. As pictured above, the USB-C cable goes into the Raspberry Pi. And, the USB-A cable (the larger side) goes into a USB power adapter.

Do not power your Pyramid Pi with a 5v1a power adapter (which is the old iPhone-style charger) or an underpowered USB port such as the one you'll find on your broadband router. A 5v3a adapter is the recommended minimum (but you may find a 5v2a works).

Options for 5v3a-rated adapters are shown below

Power Adapters (Raspberry Pi):

These ones have USB-A (so work with the cable in the Pyramid box):

Or USB-C chargers like the following also work (although be sure to have either a USB-C cable or have a charger that includes one like below, as the Pyramid cable is USB-A to USB-C):
