    Relay G10 USB input poor design

    Ultimately, I bought one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L3VRMZC/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I plug it into the backside of my Voodoo Lab power supply and it powers both my MS-3 and G10. I never disconnect the G10 USB cable from the receiver, so I don't stress about stress. It's odd, but it seems near impossible to find a pass-through U.S. AC plug/outlet with an onboard USB connector. But there are tons of AC plug converters that do it. So I'm using that, without actually doing any AC converting, using the U.S. male prong and the U.S. female receptacle options simultaneously while using a USB port for the G10.

    Relay G10 USB input poor design

    Thanks. I just updated my last reply. I was mistaken -- the 490 mA figure shoulda been 410 mA -- and that was for the G10s, not the G10. But you're showing 350 mA? Still kinda high. And as you said it could be even higher on a low battery. Hmmm. May I ask how you measured those current draws? I figured the voltage was regulated on the Power Plus 2, rather than the current. No?

    Relay G10 USB input poor design

    I have a Voodoo Labs brick that has a couple of outputs that can be dialed down as low as 4 volts using it's SAG feature, and I've read that that can be a way to get the G10 it's required 5 volts. My question is: how do we know if the brick's SAG output will provide enough current? At 9 volts it provides 100 mA at each output. But the manual doesn't say what it will provide at 5 volts. I also don't know what the max current draw is for the G10 when charging, so I'm concerned that any kind of conversion from a converted 9-volt pedal power supply (or using the Voodoo Labs SAG option) may not provide enough current. I know people have been doing the conversion without apparent issue, but maybe the re-charge time is longer due to reduced current capabilities of whatever 9-volt supply is being used? Thoughts?
