Can you power a recording module by USB? Answered

Hi i was wanting to know if it was at all possible to power a recording module that you would find in a recordable birthday card via USB as i am making a wall-e and would like the sound setup to be powered by the same usb connection as the rest of my Wall-e Hub.

any advice would be greatly appreciated.

best regards.

First step is to find out what voltage that module is normally running on. Then regulate the 5V from the USB port down to that voltage.
