powering the oDroid u3 with ALLPOWERS 50000mAh Double USB 3

Unread post by pranav » Sun Dec 21, 2014 3:59 pm

Hi all,

Can the following battery pack power the oDroid U3? If so, how would I connect the U3 to the pack? I have not seen a USB cable with a barrel connector.

You may need this cable to use the power pack.

Many thanks.
The production description says that the cable is for the oDroid c1. I have an oDroid U3. Will the same cable work? Just double checking.
I will try to source the cable locally if not, I will order it from you. The local sourcing is to avoid high shipping costs.

Yes, it works with the ODROID-U3 too.

Pollin.de for Europe and ameridroid.com for North America.

You may be able to power the U3 with it but right as soon as you plug the Powerbank in to charge, it will shutdown the outputs, it only has a 1A input charge. I tried this with a different one that had a 2A charge and it still had issues charging and powering at the same time.

Hi Killer turtle,

Thanks for the warning. What battery pack, if any would you suggest?

I haven't been able to find one that that would allow the odroid with it's power requirement to operate while charging

Hi all,

Thanks. I have ordered the cable at
http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 1637559827

Now to wait at least 2 weeks for the cables to come.
