    Re: Win a Philips Simplicity with USB monitor

    I did some digging - it comes with a Y-cable which has two connectors for the PC end and one for the monitor end (hence it's allowed to draw twice as much power). Phillips list it's max consumption as 9 Watts so it wouldn't be possible with one port alone.

    Sorry, no wizardry - it's just like the portable bus powered USB hard drives

    Sorry

    High current draw is for charging only I think (if I remember rightly) i.e. non active devices which this doesn't fall into. Could be wrong it's a while since I looked at the spec.

    I found the info on the Phillips support site for the device - where it tells you that you need both connectors plugged into to power it.

    amazing! USB powered as well!

    specs say it has a load wattage of 9watts.

    So if your laptop only has 2 USB ports (I'm looking at YOU, Dell Lattitude E6320) you're a bit stuffed for peripherals...

    I guess you could always grab a USB charger and plug it into the wall, but that would kind of defeat the point

    Didn't even realise such a product was available (although I think that's what thunderbolt is about? ) but a very interesting product!
