Please use the USB power cable included with the ASIAIR - other cables may be too thin and cannot provide enough power. A 12V-5V DC converter is provided in the box - you can connect the ASIAIR to your 12V power supply along with your other devices.

Please find more detailed info in the ASIAIR Quick Guide.
