    Since the OSSC uses 5v at 1A, couldn’t it be possible to use a USB port as a power supply? This could be in the form of a USB cable that terminates in the 2.1 x 5.5mm and centre positive tip, or in the form of a hardware revision that has a mini-usb port for sourcing power.

    Then again, there is a potential for issues if someone plugs it into a USB port that is not supplying the correct amperage, whether that be 0.5A, 1.2A, 2A or even 3A now with usb-c plugs.

    It is just something to think about as a possibility.

    It would’ve been nice had the OSSC had, say, a mini-B USB port for power; but, in lieu of that, you can always get these USB-A to 5.5×2.1mm barrel adapters from Amazon and pair them with a USB hub or wall wart that provides the correct amperage.
