Hi, I have just bought a Bome box and hoping to use it to manage my Launch control and FX Express pedal and possibly also Behringer Xtouch compact.
At the moment, I am powering the Bome box from an IKEA Koppla 3 port charger.
This seems to be just about sufficient to make the Launchcontrol work (although sometimes it gets disconnected).
However, if I try to use a simple passive USB hub and connect both the LC and my FBV pedal, the pedal lights flash and it doesnt connect properly and the LC acts up.
So I clearly need a better power solution but I want to use it live and keep the setup as compact as possible.
I’m wondering. If I get a powered USB hub. Say something like https://www.amazon.co.uk/RSHTECH-Aluminum-Portable-Splitter-Individual/dp/B07KFGY2CR
Can I use that for the usb controllers AND to power the Bomebox? If so, is it better to get one with or without fast-charging for the bomebox power?
Or is it better to get a POE supply that is sufficiently able to power the Bomebox and pass through power to the usb devices via passive usb hub? If so, are there any recommended POE devices? It’s not something I’m all that familiar with.
Looking at some of the compact POE injectors - they only seem to offer 0.5amps. https://www.amazon.co.uk/antoble-Injector-Adapter-Supply-Ethernet/dp/B07DGR7KYW
I’m not sure what my USB devices use, the specs just say USB powered. I guess USB devices can take up to 0.5amp each right?
