Not as described and not fit for purpose for Raspberry Pi. Avoid.
on 28 December 2014
I am in exactly the same situation as some of the unfortunate other on here who have received a different power supply to the one described and shown in the picture.
Instead of the 2000mA output Pi Hut branded power supply shown in the product photograph, the power supply that I received instead is different and inferior 'Power Pax' branded one, and it's power output is less from advertised and so it is insufficient for use with my Raspberry Pi.
From the Pi site:
"...the Model B+ has slightly more efficient power circuits as well as more available USB ports and can use between 600-2000mA..."
So a power supply that outputs only 1800mA is not fit for purpose as a Pi power supply. Received as a gift and cannot return it to avoid upsetting a relative who ordered the correct one but received the wrong item so I am now stuck with a useless item and a family member is stuck paying for it. Not happy.
Now I have to order a replacement at my own expense, so I'd advise everyone who needs a Raspberry Pi power supply to avoid this one.
