Ahaha, well i am a subscriber to BigClive so i know him very well and yes, he is quite a character and knows his electronics.SuperGeekJames wrote: ↑Sun Jul 14, 2019 6:05 pmMy cable is only a short one I got with a powerbank, but I've used it with the bank and my tablet drawing 2A, so I don't think the cable matters. I know a guy on YouTube, CliveDotCom, he's a Scottish electrowiz, probably more than me and you. I'm gonna order a second board, and send it to him as he's really good with electronics, he can decipher almost any circuit board and draw a schematic. He'll know how to mod it further.
The only thing you'll need to watch for is it isn't quite the same shape and colour as the original. It fits in the slot perfectly and clicks, but the fascia is more rounded and black, whereas my old one was rectangular and grey coloured. Not too bad but, yeah, 2A across two ports is a massive improvement. And the voltage stays solid at 5.1V at 900+ mA, whereas the old one dropped below 4.8-9V.
I look forward to yours coming too Astraowner! By the way, are Astraowner and Astramaster the same guy, i.e you? I keep confusing you two!
I am not AstraMaster, only astraowner
The color is not very important as mine sits inside the armrest and is only seen when the lid is lifted, and to be honest, i rarely look into the armrest at all.
These units comes from american cars, so i would imagine the plastic quality is shite, as most dashboards in US cars are, as far as i have heard
