broken power connector

Unread postby nikki81 » Fri May 19, 2017 5:13 am

Hi the power connector on my u3 has broken and I am not able to find a replacement. Is it safe to back power it via the usb port ?

Thanks Nikki

No. We don't recommend it because of the reverse current.

Can you solder two wires on the DC jack pins something like this?
