    is there any "USB supported" TB fw adapters?

    My audio interface is not getting enough from TB>FW adapter which is rather annoying, i was thinking i could somehow boost it by using another USB port to power it.

    In the core of a black hole.
    Don't think you can, it gets the power from the active connection, not from another connected cable.
    If it has an external power option I would use that one to power the device.

    It has, but it needs more than USB provides. :/ so I always need a power adapter to lug around with me.

    This is the first time since I got the retina that I'm annoyed by it.
