Topic: USB As Power Source

Can the USB port safely power the C1/Infocast 3.5 units from a 2a/5v power supply?

can what usb port power a chumby?   any 2+ amp usb port should be able to.

Re: USB As Power Source

Standard USB ports on computers will only supply 500ma or .5 amps. This will not keep a Chumby happy and is bad for the computer!

Note that you cannot power the chumby through *its* USB port, only through the power jack (or battery if appropriate).
