Troubleshooting / FAQ

  • 2.5 inch HDDs are SSD or internal laptop HDDs, that can operate with 5V supplied by a standard USB3.0 port of a laptop/PC/media player/Gaming Console
  • 3.5 inch HDDs are desktop HDDs, that need 12V/2A external supply to operate along with the 5V supply from a USB3.0 port.


       The Desktop Kit comes with a BIS certified Power adaptor and the extension kit. It comes with a 12V/2A power adapter to power the desktop HDD. The special price is 399 for the unit with 1 amps charger and *Rs.458 with 2 amps (Recommended)* power charger [compatible with all model desktop hdd]. You can place the order from PiBOX India link and add the *COUPON CODE: “PIDKIT100″* at checkout.


  1. What does this cable do? It adds 12V power inline. Pin out diagram is on listing if you want to DIY at home. You need a SATA to SATA extension cable and a 12V/2A adaptor.
  2. 1Amps/2Amps- Few hdd peak ampere may be higher than 1 amps and may not start while trying to use 12V/1A.
  3. Why should I get this cable? If you have purchased the SATA to USB for 2.5inch SSD/HDD, to connect your 3.5inch Desktop HDD, you can use this converter kit for your cable. Please note that the desktop hdd does not work with 2.5 inch cable as desktop hdd needs 12v power also, that usb3.0 cannot supply.

    Good luck and thanks a lot for your trust!
