Correction: make called Zedar
I purchased a Dell 65W LA65NS2-01 charger off of Amazon and I haven't had any issues with it yet.
I'm using the Dell D6000 USB 3.1 and USB-C Dock, it is working flawlessly, I have additional ports and I'm only using one USB-C on the bolt.
The power supply is not the cause of my problem. The last time it happened, I felt the power supply, and it was barely warm.
The AUKEY PA-Y12 power supply is confirmed not working.
Sharing pricey but minimalistic adapters (recommended to those who value minimalism over money):
USB-C option: Innergie 60C USB-C Laptop Adapter (Int'l)
To Buy: https://amzn.com/B07GBXMN78
DC Barrel option (HP laptop tip): Innergie 65U Laptop Adapter (Int'l)
To Buy (Warning: I purchased Int'l version, but this is US only version): https://amzn.com/B07N83V64F
I can every single eletronic device I have including Udoo Bolt with the above.
Recommended for those who want to have one/two charger(s) for all, but it/they come(s) at a price.
Hi UDOO, need help/advice here. I think I fried my UDOO BOLT. Not sure if the adapter is faulty or the mobo is faulty.
See HDMI CN20 area. You can see that spot looks burnt.
My whole house blacked out the moment i turn the power on.
The saddest part, I didn't get to use this board as I powered it for the very first time.
This is the AC Adapter i used (shown below).
Any advice, guys? I don't know whether to cry or live with heart ache.
Will a 90W HP Envy 17 series Power Supply that has 4.5*3.0 light blue work on the Bolt V8 without trouble?
That burnt area is a zero ohm resistor (serving as a poorman's fuse) on the HDMI port.
It seems that the power surge came in from the HDMI cable (believe it or not, I had heard a similar story from a friend that thunder came thru HDMI cable; in his case, the fancy HDTV was a goner...)
Does it say 19V 4.74A (or similar)? If true, and with a light-blue plug, most likely it will work. YMMV
Hello, i also use this power supply. It works just fine. For french udooers it can be found at amzon.fr
Currently using Dell DA130PE1-00 130W power supply with a Dell power supply to HP power supply adapter
"DC Power Charger Converter Adapter Cable 7.4mm To 4.5mm"
currently I am using an apple 87 W USB-C power supply which works fine for now. It can also be run in line with a dongle to get more USB ports. For later use I have a battery managment system called openUPS. But for being able to use it I need to get a matching power plug, which I am having a hard time finding. Anyone knowing a source?
I run the Bolt with a Dell 130W power adapter which was lying around. This power adapter delivers 19.5V and some generous 6.67A providing a huge buffer of power. And it is slim and the cable can be wrapped nicely to store the adapter.
Hi every one, im new to the forum, but i had a question about the power delivery options using the usb type c. Is it possible to use a usb type c mobile battery bank like cell phones use to power the udoo bolt v8. I want to invest in the bolt but need it to be mobile and easy to maintain with out having to go through a million break out circuits just to get power from a mobile power bank to the bolt when i could just hook it up with the c cord and battery bank. So have any of you used a type c battery bank to power the bolt before?
You'll need a USB-C PD battery pack with the proper spec (19V 3A or 20V 3A).
Lower ones (like what you've stated) won't work.
Have you read through this thread, such as this one?
Sure. I run mine from a Zendure Supertank occasionally. I couldn't give you a runtime on it though, since I haven't done extended runs like that. It's a little pricey, but I'm sure there are cheaper options out there. As noted above, and in the documentation, the battery will need to support the 20V 3A power profile.
For UK users, Mouser sells the UDOO Bolt. See "Customers also Purchased" at the base of the page for accessories (incl. power supplies):
is there a button or a pin that needs to be flipped to make the UDOO Bolt work with USB-C? I'm using a 20V 3A USB C Charger / gen2 cable and only the arduino light blinks on and off when i plug in the USB C Cord
It's automatic (actually automagic) when a proper USB-C power adapter and a correct USB-C cable are used.
When the right adapter and right cable is used, it's magic!
When anything that is out of spec, NO, it won't work and you won't have a clue why. That's the ugly side of that magic coin.
There is no layman tool (can try WEB-U2 tester) or anything visual that can show the user it definitely will work. The issue fall under the USB-C design (overly complex and too many moving parts) and the continuous push to say "it's universal" but in reality it is not.
This is why there is the list in this thread
and also I always tell people try to use that DC 19V jack to verify BOLT is working properly first, (then spend your spare time to wrestle with the ugly USB-C PD scheme.)
