Deity SPD1 power through USB-C


Ben Sim

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I just got my Deity SPD1.

When powering it with my 65W Magsafe-USB-C it shows it's only getting 9V, which is not enough for my DADM226.

I don't know why it is like that, because the Magsafe is supposed to deliver also 12V or more.

 

Which USB-C power supply do you recommend / use with the Deity?

 

And: Is there a way to set USB-C to first priority power? When I attach USB-C and a smart battery simultaniously it first drains the battery and then switches to USB-C.

But what I'd like to do on my cart is using USB-C for wall power but having a battery as a backup if wall power is gone.

I can't find any settings on the SPD-1 so I assume there's no way to change that priority, right?

 

Thanks!

For some reason the Apple power bricks excluded the in between steps that is needed for the SPD-1. Therefore indeed it defaults back to the 9v. 
Make sure the USB supply is specced with Qualcomm Quick charge 3 or higher. I have Used chargers from Belkin, the German Hama and Anker with these specs. All with success. 

Per example, this one from Hama I Use/tested:

No, it takes the highest voltage first.

Thanks, I got another USB-C PD Device and now it takes 12V on the Deity.

Unfortunately my main goal with this was to use wall power, but have a battery as a backup if wall power fails, but that's not possible as it takes the higher voltage first.
