Hello. I ordered a 314GB PiDrive, Pi Enclosure Box, and cable on Pi Day 2016. The Cable and Box were mailed out to me, but the PiDrive is backordered by a month due to demand. I’d love to play around with my pi, but I’d planned to use the PiDrive power cable to power the pi. End goal for PiDrive setup is a SubSonic music streaming server on LAN.
My question is: Can I use the PiDrive cable to power a Pi 2 without having the PiDrive there to plug in as well? Would the missing drive mess up the power output to the RPi using that cable?
Thanks for your feedback
