I love to read the truths of the Brotherhood of Ellipse by the prophet Elrick.

He is genuinely passionate about this project and it's refreshing.

Alright, I found this: There’s also a major change in the process of negotiating power. Earlier generations made use of the data wires for enumeration purpose: USB power delivery specifies negotiation using the VBUS only, without affecting the data bus. This leads to the second benefit: Data transfe...

USB battery charging != USB power delivery. Different specs. Yes I am aware that they are two different specs. https://assets.nexperia.com/documents/d...F4081B.pdf here it reffers to the 50 mA as max "supply current", but hasn't information about min operating current. I know how an AND gate works ...

I may have misread on the topic. I did not read the specifications, only some stuff on Wikipedia. For USB 3.0 Battery Charging... USB Battery Charging defines a new port type, the charging port, as opposed to the standard downstream port (SDP) of the base specification. Charging ports are divided in...

50 mA is very high... Can you post a link to the datasheet of your component? This number is probably the maximum input current that the component can take, not the one you need to drive it.

5A@20V is for power only, though, no?

* USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 max current with data: max 900 mA.
* USB 3.0 Battery Charging without data: max 1.5A.
* USB 3.1 Power Delivery without data: max 5A.

USB 3.0 can go as much as 900 mA.

That said, some hardware do not respect the 500 mA of USB 2.0 anyway and will give as much mA as requested.

You can use a regular drill but it is recommended to also use a solder iron to prepare the holes to drill. I followed those instructions . The gist of it: 1. Buy M2 screws (2mm) with a length of 8mm. 2. Prepare the barrels plate by making tiny holes with the solder iron tip. This help a lot to drill...

I love /dev/tty ! They are my first PBT set and the grainy texture feels awesome. Now add on top Hi-Profile, where each keycap has well defined edges, and you have a very pleasing, unique and refreshing experience.
