USB as power source for small robot
August 15, 2011
I want to use my PC usb port to power a small robot
It contains a buzzer and two solar motors
I have measured that the robobt drain a maximum of 250mA
Could be there any issue for my motherboard doing this think?
I am very scaryed about to fry the mobo :O
what hapne to usb hub in case of abnormal current drain / short circuit?
Is there a robust overcurent protection in modern 2.0 usb hub?
placing a fuse like this one could be a good idea?
thank you all
