Hey everyone, so I'm trying to connect my oDroid XU4 with an external hard drive but have lost my adapter. These are the current adapters I have that fit, can you tell me which is okay to use, please? I will be posting the outputs.

12V DC 500mA
12V 1.0 A
9V DC 300mA
12VDC 1000mA

Do you need input information as well?
Can I go to Wal Mart, will they have a universal adapter?

If not, can you send me a link where I can purchase the adapter?

Thank You so much in advance, really appreciate it.

From the wiki https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-xu4/hardware/hardware , power for a XU4 should be 5V 4A. You can't buy from the Hardkernel distributor?

Here is the best place in the US to get the power supply.

Do not use anything over 5V on the XU4, damage will occur
