Defective Cable=Usb "Disabler"


Recommended Posts

So Have on of those ozobot things and it's cable has one heck of a defect whenever something that needs power is plugged in to the micro-usb end then once the other end hits anything that's does not have protection for a killer of all things it will disable but unlike the killer when I unplug it the device comes back to life I want to know how does this perfect defect make it a "disabler" it might help I mention that macOS gives it's "USB port drawing too much power. The device that is plugged into it will be deactivated." when it gets hit

Generally speaking, power surges will just outright kill either a device or a port. I've melted many devices by accidentally plugging in a power cable of too high voltage. You are lucky that your ports come back to life after you zap them, but I wouldn't recommend trying to use something like this for any practical application. If you google USB killer, there are videos of people using special devices to short-circuit many devices. It seems your robot isn't powerful enough to actually kill your stuff, but I wouldn't risk it
