    What issue? The ripple voltage? 400mV isn't great, but it was completely unloaded - with an RPi connected as a load, it would probably smooth that out a lot... Hard to say if the temperature is an issue under normal conditions...

    Did you not watch the video? It appears that when you draw more than ~200ma from the USB Ports they shut down.

    Seems to be related to the ripple but that itself isn't the problem.

    There is a large thread on the official forum about it too.

    Mine arrived yesterday, haven't had a chance to install/test it. Hopefully today.
