The Pi Hut12V 2A Power Supply with 2.1mm Barrel Jack
Sale price £11.08 incl. VAT excl. VAT

This handy module from Olimex allows your 5V development boards to be powered by a barrel jack power supply in the 6V-16V DC range.

It's a very convenient solution if you want to use your 5V boards in a car - the DCDC6-16-TO5 will transform the 12V input to 5V/2A output.

The input connector is a standard centre-positive barrel jack. The output connector is USB-A which you can use in conjunction with a matching USB cable for your microcontroller (most commonly a micro-USB or USB-C cable).

As this module offers 2A max current, it's not really suitable for a Raspberry Pi 3 or 4. Low-power projects using the Raspberry Pi Zero should be fine.


  • Input (barrel jack side): 6-16VDC
  • Output (USB side): 5VDC, up to 2A
  • Red status LED
  • Power consumption - 15mA @ 12V
  • 4 placement holes for attaching to own designs
  • PCB size: Approximately 44 x 23 mm
