Where to find power consumption (mA) of WD portable drivers?

Hello!

I need to konw the power consumption od starting disk and then - workin disk.

I just want to connect a disk to raspberry Pi and want to make sure which one will be ok.

Thanks in advance for all answers!

Hi abramq,

We don’t list exact power consumption for our drives. However, the article below may help. Most USB ports provide about 500mA of power. For passport drives you need about 650mA during spin up. This is mentioned towards the bottom of the article.

Error: “Power Surge on Hub”
