For this new year I wanted to create a video at least as cool as last year’s VU meter experiment. (Check out the video!)
However I did not manage to get this done. As it turned out some broken USB power supply prevented me from proper execution.
My fix resulted in the USB Voltage Monitor Experiment. Now I have some very simply means to check if USB voltage is good or bad. Check out the article after the link.
In case someone notices: yes, the charger doctor would have detected the issue as well. However I always notice the display flicker and blink. Thus I usually keep it disconnected. My solution will only blink if there is something fishy with the USB voltage.
So happy new year everyone and check your USB voltage if your peripherals start to behave strange 🙂
