USB-Bug™ Tester & Data Masker: Prevents Data Transfer, Tests Power, Voltage, and Current of 2.0/3.0 Ports - (USB-BUG)

6 14395 00190 2

The Triplett USB-Bug is designed to test the power, voltage, and current of USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 charging ports. Connect the USB-Bug inline between the power source and the device you are trying to charge. Test current from 0 to 3 Amps. If the current is over 3 Amps, the USB-Bug will flash the decimal point quickly. Test voltage from 3.2 VDC to 30 VDC. If the voltage is greater than or equal to 5.6 VDC, the decimal point indicator on the voltage measurement will flash quickly. If the voltage is less than 4.4 VDC, the decimal point indicator on the voltage measurement will flash slowly. Test power from 0 to 99.9W. 

  • The USB-Bug will dTest Power (0 to 99.9W), Voltage (3.2 to 30VDC) and Current (0 to 3A) on USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 charging ports with over-voltage, under-voltage and over-current indicators
  • Measure capacity (in mAh) to verify output of portable battery pack
  • Intelligent charging feature automatically selects the safest maximum current for your phone or tablet (charging your phone or tablet up to 50% faster)
  • Dual output for charging two USB devices off of one USB 3.0 port; One port is a specially designed masked port to charge your phone or tablet without any data being transferred
Product Overview

The USB-Bug will display the Amp hours (Ah) and milliamp hours (mAh) that have passed through the Tester. This displays as a cumulative number and is useful when determining how quickly/effectively a portable battery charger is working. The USB Bug has a built-in Smart Chip for Intelligent Charging that allows it to determine the safest maximum current your PD can accept. It can charge your phone or tablet up to 50% faster than aftermarket/generic chargers. There are two USB out ports. The top port, called the Unmasked Port, allows data to transfer while charging. The bottom port, called the Masked Port, blocks any data from being transferred. You can use the Masked Port to charge your phone or tablet without having to worry about anyone accessing your data.
