What if you don't use the Y cable?

Recommended Posts

What would happen if you weren't using the USB Y Cable?

 

My problem is that I have a macbook pro 13 inch, and it only comes with one USB port on either side.. Rather annoying. 

 

Will the thing not get enough power and not work properly?

I dont know the power output of the usb port on the macbook pro 13 but that is what i use also.  What I do if im going to be using modules and PineAP to the fullest extent, is plug an external battery into the second usb cable on the Y-cable for more power.  I have noticed while running PineAP and DWALL at the same time with clients connected, that the pineapple will freeze up due to not having enough power. So the external battery helps with the power requirements for the pineapple. If your just collecting SSID, I have used a 5V1A power supply for that with no problems but the recommend power requirements say 5v2A for the PIneapple.
