Hi group, I want to use the 5 volts from an Android micro usb for a single chip. I tried to hack a charger cable, but I can't get 5 volts off of it. I'm thinking it might have something to do with the 200K resistor that was, perhaps, giving a device ID as a charger. So, I clipped it off and it still doesn't give me 5 volts.
As far as I'm concerned, this cannot be called a real USB port if I can't get 5 volts out of it. So, I'm convinced it is available, but I just don't know how to do it.
Any help would be appreciated.
