Attach Power Cables

The Raspberry Pi and attached screen can be powered up in multiple ways. Each has a micro USB power connector and can be powered independently and this is how early versions of the kit worked. If you have two long micro USB cables in your kit with two USB chargers, then you can simply plug each one cable into the board attached to the screen and the other into the Raspberry Pi.

More recently, the kit was modified slightly to allow both the Raspberry Pi and screen to be powered with a single plug to the wall. If you have one USB charger and one short 6-inch USB cable, then this is the version you have. In this case, the USB charger plugs into the screen. The 6-inch micro USB cable plugs from the USB port on the screen (below the four-plex of USB ports on the Raspberry Pi) to the micro USB connector on the Raspberry Pi. See the photos below.
