12v computer PC fans powered by 5V USB Answered
Hi folks, I have a mains powered USB hub and have successfully powered some 12V, 0.08A PC fans with a USB cable. I was wondering if powering 12V fans with 5V power supply would somehow damage the USB hub over time?
I was also going to power some other things from the hub and thought of getting a luster/screw terminal to group power the fans from one USB cable (saving me some USB port space to power the other things). Could you foresee any problems with this?
Thanks in advance :)
