 +    ​:!: Several forum posts report malfunctions when servos receive their power supply via the I2C bus. \\ In the reported cases, the high power requirements of the servos in the small wire diameters of the I2C cables result in undervoltage for the Pi modules. \\ **For this reason, servos should always be powered separately with their own power supply.**
