Before i ask my questions, Please read this forum regarding known issues with this device...

Are you aware of this issue?
Does it pertain to this device?
How much power does this device draw?
Will it burn out my Pi?

We have not had any problems reported with this product. And it appears to be physically different from the one pictured in that thread.

Thank you for your response, but this doesn't answer all my questions...

How much power does this device draw?

We don't know what the power draw is, but that thread sounds like an isolated incident with a poorly constructed adapter. we haven't heard of any issues using these adapters and raspberry pi's. If you don't want to plug the adapter into your pi, email support@adafruit and we can arrange a return for full refund!
