I’m looking to get one of the expansion modules to basically use as a portable ssd. I was wondering how much power they draw, as I want to be able to use it with my phone to transfer files easily to my desktop and laptop. I’ve had bad luck with ports on older phones being able to power external storage. Has anyone tried this or know how much power the modules draw? (I know I could probably use a normal little flash drive, but I want the additional speed and reliability of a full ssd, as well as supporting Framework)
I don’t know how much power they draw, but I believe there are several people on this forum who have tested using one with their phone and it works fine. I’d say it’s more of a flash drive than an SSD. I can confirm personally though that I have plugged mine into my desktop Windows PC and it’s worked fine.
