Whatever radio module nRF24L01 is used (standard or nRF24L01+PA+LNA, long distance), it is preferable to use an adapter. In fact, these modules include a voltage regulator (step-down) that allows the 3V3 radio module to be stably powered. The power regulator is of better quality than those that equip the Arduino (or Arduino Micro). If the power supply is unstable or disturbing, the reception or transmission of data packets can be severely disrupted.
