i’m new in raspberry pi. i want to parallel powered my raspberry pi with 12 v and 5 amp, because i want to powered not just the raspberry pi. i want to powered a solenoid too that run in 12 volt and 4 amp. so i have a idea to powered it from gpio, but refer to this link, the raspberry pi can’t powered from the gpio. does anyone has a solution to powered the raspberry pi besides from usb c power supply ? thank you very much and pardon my english.

Hi @farhan, Welcome and nice to meet you. Ah, let me see. (1) First thing first, a warning: (a) Relays and solenoids, whether 5V or 12V have “Back EMF” which might fry Rpi or other hardware stuff. So it is better to use optical isolation, to prevent noise, EMF, EMI etc. (Yes I fried two PSUs last year) (2) You might search rpi.org.forum: raspberrypi.org/forums/search.php?keywords=relay+tlfong01, Searched query: “relay” “tlfong01” – Search found 480 matches: relay tlfong01. / to continue, … – tlfong01 12 mins ago

By the way, usually you use a relay to control a solenoid valve, solenoid door lock etc. So you need to know how to use a relay. In case you find the above posts a bit too advanced, you might like to start with the fundamentals: Re: Relay Module KY-019 5V – tlfong01, rpi.org.forum, 2018jun02, 16,025 views raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=77158#p1323061 Have a great project, yours faithfully, tlfong01.
