    If the cable above fits then it should work. I don't know if this one will fit. I bought my cable at micro robotics. I took my router with me so that I could check that the cable will fit. This to note: The shorter the cable the better. Some people have reported issues when the cable is to...

    The cheapest backup power devices for staying online during load-shedding

    It supports 5v 3Amp. There is a device which you can use to enable Quick Charge which will up the voltage to 12v. I don't do the above as the device has to be imported. What I did was buy two cables with the USB plug on the one end and the router plug on the other end. Plugged the router...
