Should everything be powered by OPUS?
Ok heres my project plan. I have just about everything. But before attempting an install, I had a few question about powering some of my components.
7" lilliput (USB)
Maxtor 7200 160g
D-link radio (usb)
Wireless Keyboard/mouse (USB)
CDRW/DVD Slim Drive (USB)
6 port USB powered Hub
****loads more USB toys
I wanted to know how things should be powered? My plan was to power the USB hub and Lilliput direct to my ignition. Hub would carry most usb devices.
What are your thoughts?
Would it be best to allow the opus to power everything?
To avoid damaging lilliput and or to avoid usb device loss during crank?
Would there even be a point to preserving power on the Opus? Because isnt the point of purchasing an opus to have everything run off of it?
Did i make a foolish purchase by getting an OPUS because I could of easily used a 75watt PSU and purchased a powered USB hub and have everything usb related sit on the ignition?
