Yesterday I got my RPi2 and I was suprised that the Pi did not boot with connected Meridian Explorer (it´s the “old” resp. first version) and my 1,5A / 12V PSU.
Ok, I thought I take my iPad charger (5V / 2.4A) … but no boot.
Next try: PSU from my FireTV (6V / 2.5A) … and the RPi boots without any problem.
I´am really suprised and never expected this because my old RPi B+ boots with connected Meridian without any problem on my (1,5A / 12V) PSU.
Is the new RPi2 so much more power consuming than the old B+? Has anyone the same experience with the new RPi2?
