About this deal
Compatible with most devices with micro-USB connectors (smartphones, tablets, E-readers, games consoles and more)
Boats by their very nature require improvising and out of the box thinking, and in this case it doesn’t require much. USB 2.0 voltage from the host port is always 5v if it’s working correctly, regardless if the device connected uses 10mA or 500mA. The voltage will never increase beyond 5V unless there has been a circuit failure or it was improperly designed. As Elias correctly stated, USB 2.0 is specified to provide at least 500mA, many host devices will provide more. Now, when someone connects a USB peripheral that requires more current than the host port can provide, it can be handled in different ways. A well designed host port will just shutdown and stay shutdown until it detects the condition has been resolved. If it’s not as well designed, the port will put out what current it can, but the external device may see a voltage sag and definitely will not get the full current it needs. Depending on the external device, this can cause erratic and potentially damaging behavior, or the device may sense the condition and shut itself down.The picture quality and sound quality are perfect there’s no distortion and if the video watched can handle it, it can easily manage HD quality. The streaming speed and quality are exceptional. No more endless buffering or lagging—watching content is smooth and uninterrupted, even in high definition. Each of these things can be determined through the process of elimination. First the power: Try using the device with a good quality power adapter with plenty of current (1.5A or more) and a short high quality cable and see if the issue goes away.
Say Goodbye to Messy: Remove clutter from behind your TV by removing the long USB cables that can hang out from behind your TV.The USB port on a TV could be designed to provide up to about 2A of power, this isn’t an issue, but it does take more components and increases cost. The port can also be designed to always provide power, regardless if the TV itself on. It’s just a design decision, which has to be balance against other concerns like phantom energy usage. I’ve been using this for about 6 months now and I absolutely love it!! I am not super tech savvy so this is so nice to be able to just plug in and it works like it’s supposed to. But I agree it’s very curious why so many refuse to use the provided power adapter. Their TV requires use of a wall outlet so there must be one close by.
