– #Ways #Overcome #Power #Surge #USB #Ports –Have you ever experienced a USB port power-surge error notification when plugging your USB device into your computer’s USB port? In fact, this issue is quite common and has always occurred in Windows 10/8/7.

To be more specific, the detailed error message immediately after the notification is “unrecognized USB device requires more power than the port can provide”.

If you expand it, you can see another pop-up that says “the USB device is not working and has exceeded the power limit of its hub port…”

This problem always occurs when connecting your device to the USB port. Moreover, this can happen when you have already connected to the device and it suddenly stops working.

Like other ports, USB ports also come with a power rating. In normal cases, the default power output of a standard USB port is 500 milliamps. If you find your device is drawing more power than this, a USB power surge error appears.
