Please do not advertise the Cubie HDD addon for Banana Pi/Pro without a warning. The 5V power cable that is supposed to be used with the on-board SATA power connector is inverted!
Banana Pi/Pro, Orange Pi, Cubieboard/Cubietruck and PCDuino all share the same 5V SATA power connector. But Cubies/PCDuino and the many Pis use a different Pin layout (no idea why LeMaker/SinoVoip or whoever the company behind the original Banana Pi is chose to exchange 5V/GND on the connector in the first place).
In my opinion dedicated dual voltage PSUs like this one are a good choice or any PSU for older external IDE enclosures that's lying around (they all feature 5V@2A and 12V@2A and can be used to power both 3.5" HDD and the board itself).
