Introduction: How to Make an Orange Pi Power Adapter

I got a $20 orange pi from here, which was a very good deal even without a cord, i didn't realize that it didn't come with a power cord, so i made one.

Step 1: I Wanted a USB Connector, So That's What I Made

The plug on the pi is a 5mm plug and i wanted a USB plug

Step 2: Find a 5mm Plug and a Female Usb Port

Solder the two together 5v to 5v and gnd to gnd. MAKE SURE THE POLARITY IS RIGHT!!!!!

Step 3: Connect It Up and Your Done

Your orange pi should boot up no problem
