I need 9V DC what happens if I USB it? Answered
I'm making a compact speaker enclosure that will fit in a laptop bag I've got everything together and looking sweet. making this because my ACER laptop has crappy sound and I want to be able to hear things on it when I travel. I have sick speakers at home but there very not portable. problem right now is power is supplied by a 9V DC adapter I really hav no mre room to make any other type of circuit or battery pack........its pretty tight. what happens if I just cut the adapter and put a USB end on it? I realize it will only provide 5 Volts but will it work?......... maybe just reduced power? will any damage result? I know only a little about voltage and most of my electrical experience is through trial and error. (not recomended, I've zapped myself more then a couple of times) Ideas?
