Smart Modem Gen2 - LH1000

Does anyone know if the USB3 port would be able to power a Raspberry Pi 2? I am unable to find any specs on the power out put of this port

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

I don't think it will provide sufficient power for a Raspberry Pi 2. It only charges my phone at 300 mA.

USB ports are generally specced at 500 mw, the Arcadyan port struggles with some USB HDD's in my experience.

 

Why do you want to connect a Pi that way? As a server or network media device? so that other devices on the network can connect to it?

Too many devices, probably an addict :-) also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

Whoops, that should be 500 mA...

Tom - the Raspberry Pi needs at least a 2 Amp power supply to function, ideally 2.5 Amps if other items are connected to it , so it just won't work on the Smart Modem, in fact if connected could damage the Pi. 

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
