Are Waveshare USB adapters compatible with XBee S3B?

0 votes
Are the Waveshare USB adapters able to supply sufficient power to the 250 mW S3B modules, and has anyone else gotten the S3B modules to work with the Waveshare in general?

I am having trouble getting my S3B modules to work, and fear they may be damaged. I have ordered some new ones but I want to eliminate all sources of problems. This is the purchase link for the Waveshare unit:

I already know there is an issue with the S3B modules and the LED on pin 6, and that I need to desolder that LED. No problem there. This is the forums thread describing this issue:

Kind regards,

Sorry I have never heard of this board so I can't say if it is going to work or not.
