Good Morning all and thanks for you help ahead of time

 

I recently bought a Logitech G502 mouse and a T9 keyboard, both of these where working great until yesterday, I think I may have burned them up but I wanted to see if this is even possible. 

 

I have a 5 port USB hub that is powered, I could not find the power adapter requirements anywhere on the device so like a dummy I just used a power adapter that "fit".  I plugged it into the laptop and both of my external USB devices (mouse and keyboard) The USB hub lite up for a second then nothing, I tried several times thinking my USB port may be lose and I was not getting a good connection. After a few times I figured it must be the power adapter. Now when I plug my mouse and keyboard directly back into the computer they dont work (no lights on devices) I tried both my computer at work and another computer at home.

 

Is it possible to zap a USB device if the power adapter is too high?

 

Thanks!

 

Mike

What voltage was the adapter you used? If you plugged 12V into a device expecting 5V, that will normally destroy it.
