How much power does mini wing require???

Postby Dembezuma » Fri Aug 09, 2019 12:38 pm

Hi. I've been using a mini wing successfully for a few months with both a MacBook Pro and a dell laptop. I just bought a Shuttle x50v3 and the wing doesn't work with it - no blue lights when I plug it in so I GUESS there insufficient current from the shuttle USB sockets :( (wing still works fine on other computers.)

So I bought a powered USB hub. Same thing. I guess the cheap hub also doesn't provide enough power - likely just still 500mA to each port or whatever.vidmate mobdro word counter

So I wanna get a better hub but I can't find out what current (or power) it needs to provide to definitely power the wing! They seem to sometimes be 900mA, sometimes 2 or 2.1A...

Or if there are specific models of hub anyone can recommend that'd be great.

Thanks in advance

By a split USB cable. This cable has 2 connectors on the side of the PC and then you have for sure enough power.
