@jcodybaker: there is one batch of OSPi that came with 500mA PTC fuse, which is too small so we stacked another 500mA PTC fuse on top of. This is not really the correct approach to extend it to 1 amp, but OSPi was not designed to supply a huge amount of current to begin with, and we can hardly keep up with the ever growing power need of new versions of RPi…
Your point about built-in WiFi on RPi 3 is very true. I am actually curious how well the built-in WiFi works as I’ve heard mixed stories about its range.
