View Full Version : add power to USB ports on iMac G3

Jun 13, 2007, 08:37 PM
would it be possible to solder any wires to get power onto the USB ports on a G3 iMac? I have a blue 500Mhz model, if that would make any difference. the reason that I want to do this is because all of the iPods use USB now, and I would like to be able to charge mine while I am syncing it.

Buy a powered hub?

Which iPod are you using? I have a shuffle which will charge on my iMac, attached to a USB port on the computer itself with an extention cable.
