Thanks for the information & review Phil - your setup is VERY nice! I can't seem to find that USB bridge that you're using, which looks much more convenient than using x2 male - x1 female USB cables. Can you please let me know where to purchase those?

wish I did  but they are no longer available.

They came out back in the day of usb stick mining
They are still available. Go on aliexpress and search USB Y cable and you can get em for a buck a pop. I ordered about ten of them from aliexpress and they're still shipping. No fear, all of this mining stuff doesn't ever go away Smiley

The y cables are pretty easy.

That hard metal bridge not that easy.

Sorry, didn't see what you were mentioning in the first post. Unfortunately THOSE are not available anymore but the Y cables are ok so as long as you don't put them on carpets or anything like that. Maybe people will start selling the bridges in the future but for now the Y cables are all we got.

those solid usb bridges were nice but they would be specific to a particular hub and useless for all others.

what might be nice is a simple circuit board with one usb plug/socket on the board and then a pigtail cable for the other usb plug so the board supports the miner and the pigtail plugs into any nearby socket.

that way the miner is supported instead of flopping around, it gets extra power and it can be used with any hub.

That would be good,but I have a fix if you can find the bridges.

Fast check on the two sticks  The have been running none stop since  Feb 1 and HW = 0 for both sticks

So you're proving vapourminer's idea can work. It'd be better with a much shorter cable.

Just had those parts on hand.

I am about to plug in the 2pac to it.
