Please confirm the style of USB Cable included with your Pi when purchasing a power adapter:

Your Pyramid Pi may have shipped with a USB-A to USB-C or a USB-C cable, please confirm which you have based on the picture before deciding what plug you need from below 👇

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
