Are the Thunderbolt-3/USB-C drives self powered?


#1

Hi All,

Looking at purchasing a G-Drive with Thunderbolt 3/USB-C and wondering can these devices be powered through either the Thunderbolt/USB-C interface rather than using the power adapter.

Thanks Telly.

Only the ones that are named Mobile. If Mobile is not in the name of the device it will come with and require a power adapter.

Thanks for the reply. That’s a shame though, given USB-C is spec’ed to deliver quiet a lot of power.
