Does this adapter also provide power to an external thunderbolt2-ssd-harddrive like those from sonnet or delock?
1 Answer from the Community
According to the document HT207266 "Connect devices and displays with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter" this adapter does not work with bus powered devices. When using this adapter with the Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter, only up to 10W is allowed for the FireWire device. Those external hard drives probably require more than 10W.
