I had tremendous issues with shut downs when the LP was under load. Fixed this by using a Pimoroni Raspberry Pi Hub kit which comes with a 5.2v 3amp PSU.

Whenever I've tried using a lesser PSU, that's when I start getting sudden shut-downs.

Similar issues here as well. I've purchased the $10 2.5 amp charger suggested here. I'll report back Monday.

Good News! I troubleshot this some more and just switching to a better quality USB cable increased stability (no issues since). I still have a 2.5 amp PS coming for it though :D

Moin Moin,
The people with problems should take a look her,
http://www.rampow.com
The cable is able to deliver 2.4 Ah. You will find them on Amazon too.
How important the right cable is...
Take a look her: http://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm
If you use a wrong cable the voltage can drop 0.5 V if the currency raise. And I am not sure if the LattePanda will work stable with 4.5V.
The voltage drop for 6V is equal to 5V. Very good cable have AWG 20 most cheaper are AWG 24 and >.
Live long and prosper!
