A couple of weeks ago, I noticed my V2 hub had switched to battery power even though the power cable was plugged in and providing power (tested via multimeter). Tried swapping out the power cable, nothing.
Knowing it isn’t possible to just buy a new hub and auto-restore settings, I took desperate measures. I cut the adapter cable and fed the +/- to the backup battery terminals. Hub has been working flawlessly until just recently. It powered off by itself once last week and again today. Pulling and reconnecting power fixed the problem both times.
Is it possible the hub is auto-powering down when it thinks it has been on battery for an extended period of time? Any other reason it wouldn’t just keep running as long as the proper voltage/current is supplied via the battery terminals?
