If you have a good 12v supply available for your radios, then these are a *GREAT* solution in the shack.

They give 3A 5v very RF clean. I love'em.

That solution will only supply 2.4 amps maximum on any one port with a maximum total of 8 amps. That may just squeak by for a Pi4 if its lightly loaded with no USB devices hooked to the ports. Pi3B/+ models would probably be OK.
I'd just order the USB "C" connectors and make up 2-wire power leads and hook them to a good quality switching power supply.
