    Default Measure USB Power Output

    Came across this little neat device:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...f=discover_pop

    Made for charging phones, but I think it could be useful to see if you need more power or not. Granted I run a powered USB hub anyways... but it's still cool. I lurve my gadgets.

    edit:
    Came across this really cool 2 channel bluetooth simple DJ mixer too:

    me : "isn't there a app for that ?"

    app store: "nope"

    me : "see i knew there would be an app for .... wait ... what ? "

    ^^^ how i feel when there is no app to do something like this. i love digging through kick-starters gadgets though. but often wonder where all these hipsters live that have disposable enough income to actually donate to a kick-starters.

    Haha, I've donated in maybe 3-4 projects. I only get the bare minimum stuff though. The huge investments I never understood. If I'm gonna be investing a large portion of money, I want some kind of holding or something.

    You only really need to know if a USB port can supply the standard 500mA, any excess is of little use besides charging. A little LCD display showing current+voltage would be a lot more useful than that meter too.
