I just picked up a pro stick plus to try out. I connected it to my PC and I got some great results. After a short time the dongle overtaxed my USB port and the port shut off. I've now tried the dongle on three different computers and all immediately show the warning "Power surge on USB port."
Do I need a powered hub to run this dongle? I had been using a cheap rtl-sdr dongle to track ADS-b prior to this with no problems.

Sounds like a faulty dongle.

Dongle requires only 300 mA, which is well within the capacity of USB port of a PC.
As obj has already pointed out, most likely the dongle is faulty.

@wjruth:

Up till now I have not used my ProSticks in Windows Desktop or Laptop.
I have used these only in Raspberry Pi, Orange PI PC successfully.
I have also used these with stupid C.H.I.P. $9 board :cry: :x without success, because the CHIP board has a limitation of USB power.

Out of curiosity, I decided to try my ProStick Plus in my Windows PC.
On my Windows Desktop, I installed zadig-2.3.exe driver for RTL dongle, and jetvision's RTL1090 Scope.
I then made a temporary Spider antenna for ProStickPlus from pigtail and paper clips, connected antenna to ProStickPlus, and plugged the proStick Plus in Desktop PC.

It is now about an hour it is still running without any problem.

Thanks for the replies. It looks like I need to return it and get another shipped. Thanks!

I've been using the Pro Stick Plus in a RPi and DragonBoard410c since November with dump1090. I'm waiting for the Onion $5 dll computer to arrive and will try on it.

Regards,

I'm pleased to announce that we now have a local retailer in the Australia market: GPIO Australia. They are carrying all four of our active products effective immediately, including the Pro Stick Plus.

Is ProStick Plus currently in stock? Do you have any UK based online retailers?
