Can Nintendo Classic Mini Consoles Be Plugged Into a PC or Other Device?

Information:

The Nintendo Classic Mini consoles are powered by a USB cable (Type A to micro B) and a USB AC adapter (5V/1A output for the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System console and 5V/1.5A output for the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System console).

The consoles can also be powered using a USB port on a PC or other device with the following considerations:

  • Any device into which the USB cable is plugged must be powered on to provide power to the console.
  • Be sure to read the instructions of the device you are using and follow all warnings.
  • For more information about the USB ports on your PC or other device, consult the device manufacturer.
