Forum needs to be connected to a power supply to work. Use the power adapter and cable supplied to power your Forum Hub.
Power Forum by cable and adapter
Plug one USB-C end of the provided cable into the power adapter.
Plug the other USB-C end of the cable into the Forum Hub.
Then plug the adapter into an outlet.
Power Forum by laptop with USB-C
Forum can also be powered by a laptop if the specific model has a USB-C port. Plug the USB-C cable into the Forum Hub and the other end into the USB-C port on the laptop.
NOTE: A USB-A adaptor or dongle should not be used to power Forum as it does not provide sufficient power to run the Forum Hub.
Light it up
Once Forum is plugged in, it will be in startup mode. Forum shows a blinking or flickering green light while it’s starting up.
Green means go
When the light stops flickering and is showing a steady green, Forum is ready to use.
Some computers may not have enough power available via their USB-C ports. If so, the light will shine red, indicating Forum is incompatible with that particular port.
