Comment: More power to the USB ports? (Score 1) 202

by Aardpig (#47448565) Attached to: New Raspberry Pi Model B+

The addition of 2 extra USB ports is useless, unless they have changed the polyfuse set up to allow more power to be delivered to the ports. As things currently stand with the original model B, attaching anything more than a low-power keyboard to the Pi requires a powered hub -- the Pi itself can't deliver the required juice. It would be great if this restriction were lifted.

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
