I-s there a way to use the VEXnet Joystick Power Adapter (P/N: 276-1701) and be connected to my PC for downloading and testing programs at the same time?
If not, is there a way to do this with some other product? My joystick power keeps running out while testing programs . . .
If you are planning on connecting you joystick to your PC and download code through the wireless keys, then the only way you can provide power to your joystick is with batteries (have you considered our VEX AAA rechargeable batteries: http://www.vexrobotics.com/products/accessories/power/276-1696.html ).
The VEXnet Joystick Power Adapter connects to the “Program” port; consequently, you can’t use it while downloading with the hardware programming cable.
