Micro USB Power Supply - 2A NZ/AU Plug, suits all Raspberry Pi Models
The Raspberry Pi can be a little picky about it's power supply, it wants a nice stable 5V and if you're going to be running high powered USB accessories such that the new Raspberry Pi 3 allows you'll need a good 2A+ power supply like this one which is specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi. This adapter has nice thick internal copper wires to reduce voltage drop which might give the dreaded "rainbow square" on the Raspberry Pi display.
Although this is designed for the Raspberry Pi, due to the high current output and thick cable it's also ideal for charging Android phones and tablets with a high power need when charging.
Note about the Raspberry Pi 3 A lot of people are confused about the Raspberry Pi 3 requiring a 2.5A power supply. That's not actually the case, it can utilise a 2.5A power supply if you're wanting to power large accessories such as a spinning hard drive from the Pi's USB ports. However the Pi 3 will actually run just fine with a 0.7A power supply, meaning this 2A one is perfectly fine too.
