I have a Picade 10" with Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) (Jan 2021 firmware) and a Samsung 870 QVO SSD 1TB connected via a Sabrent USB 3.1 (Type-A) to SSD adaptor.
The Raspberry Pi power supply was fine when using an SD card but as soon as I introduce the SSD there isn’t enough power to boot, if I supply the screen and Pi with separate power then everything boots.
I am interested if other people have had similar issues and what they have done to resolve.
I can supply the unit from two power supplies or a power supply bank with two cables as an option, or I do have an option to power the SSD from another power supply source, all would work.
The single power supply bank with two cables seems a good choice.
