    Default USB penlight !?

    Hi,

    As i'm reading throughout some articles etc around here, i often stumble across the infamous USB penlight must have. Searched around for a while, but can't find anything that could help even a bit in dark places Can anyone show me a proper example of one ?

    Gonna go with that one tho, looks a lot more practical. Sidequestion on that: how much power do these things require from my USB port? Since uptil now i had my vci-100 and numark DJIO powered only through their usb ports. Could i get into trouble getting one of these? Or is their power consumption rather negligible?

    Brought one of those for our gig last friday night, they are the win! Power consumption of the one shown is pretty low. Should not give you any troubles.

    You should test it out in your home. If you need an AC adaptor for your VCI-100 then buy it. The most power hungry devices, should be plug in nearest to your ac connection, in your computer. Which is the sound card, I think so. haha.
    Thank Ya!!!

    @ luv2xra: right now i'm using both the vci 100 and DJIO on USB powered busses. Up untill now, it runs stable. That's why i was wondering if such a pen light would take a big amount of power, since that could make my setup go instable
