iPad with Duet and MacBook Pro – problems with battery
Hey, guys! I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro and a 2nd gen iPad Pro 12.9′. I’m currently using the iPad as a 2nd monitor for my MBP via USB, but this drains the battery from my iPad as hell, and I’m not sure any MacBook can have a 2A output through a USB port.
**What should I do to keep using my iPad (i.e., charge it or at least maintain the battery level) as a 2nd display?**
If a powered USB hub is a solution, please leave a suggestion below of which one to buy, since I’ve only found ones from Amazon that had a max output current between 500mA – 900mA tops in a single port (the iPad needs 2.4A x 5V = 12W).
I appreciate any input! Cheers!
