Question about Dell U2412M usb ports

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,


Ok this is maybe a little weird question but I can't find the information I need about it.

First a little background.


I have a Dell U2412M and I own an Asus Sabertooth Z77 which has a high power usb port which you can use for charging tablets fast.

This fast power charging can be enabled with the asus software. This way the port doesn't work as a USB port anymore but solely as a charging point which can deliver up to a few amps (I'm not sure how much precisely).


My question is can I connect this port to my Dell monitor and turn the charging mode on? I know it's some sort of usb-hub in the monitor. But can it handle the high current? Will it burn a circuit? Or does the hub draw it's power from the monitor's power supply and not from the 5V from the USB port it's connected to?


Regardless, thanks for any input

It pulls it from the motherboard/PSU, if your plan is a multi port high amp charger on your monitor don't do it.
