Propeller FLiP USB power requirements
I notice from the FLiP docs that its USB chip requests 1500 mA from a charger but only 500 mA from a computer's USB port. As a consequence, I've found that some charger modules will not power the FLiP, even though its actual requirements are much less, even, than 500 mA. FLiP-powered devices that work fine connected to a computer will not power up when connected to certain lower-than-1.5A chargers.
I've looked into reconfiguring the FLiP's FTDI chip to request less current, but I have not found a solution.
Has anyone dealt with this before? Have you found a work-around?
