USB 3.0 port - maximum power


#1

Does anyone known how much current the USB 3.0 host port can sustain?
I want to connect an external harddrive which takes about 600mA and i don’t want to overload it.

thanks!

Hi Mariow,

The USB3.0 port is designed to meet the standard, which is 900mA. Anyway there is a protection so no risk for the product. You can connect your harddrive safely!
