Does EspresssoBin handle 3.5inch external hard drive with 12v @ 4A external power supply?
Kickstart page shows a unit powers 3.5 inch HDD from its molex connector, and I’d like to make sure of it.

Self-answering my question.
1. A 12v @ 5A external power supply works flawlessly with a 3.5 inch Toshiba 3T HDD.
2. Pay attention to power socket size and polarity.
Yes a 3.5in HDD can be powered by the 12V power supply (we use 2amp). We recommend first connecting the 12V PSU and then the HDD drive. After these are connected then connect the microUSB interface for console.
Thank you Bryan.
An EspressoBin is running only on said power supply with a bunch of other nodes and it works great so far. 😉
