beagle board power up

Dear Friends,

Just started working with beagle board. I have planned to power it up using USB Hub. The power adapter to USB Hub has 5V, 2.25A. Is the current specification too high and harmful to the board? As the board document (section 5.5) suggests 500mA is enough to power up the board.

if it is so what should be the right current specification considering the fact that I might use the USB Hub to connect it to keyboard, mouse etc?


no. it is not harmful.
beagleboard will draw up to what it requires.


thanks Kiam
