Hello,

I've had this USB to RF adapter20190113_171340.jpg 20190113_171505.jpg for a long time, but I don't know what it can be used for. Can anyone tell me?

Thanks,

Are you familiar enough with your operating system to see if your operating system installs a driver for it?

Are you familiar with the device manager under properties(right click) of My Computer or This PC?

Ok....are there any network devices added or com ports added when you plug it in?

If you can not discern any change, plug unit in and have system search for new devices.

Have you ever heard of SDR radio and software? You can download free SDR software(Sharp, for instance) and see if the sdr software can recognize the port.

Can you associate anything else with the device?

BR-549,

Thanks for your suggestions, but I don't see any difference when the device is plugged in. I don't think it is an active device.

The device does have 5 VDC at the RF connector when plugged in, so it is probably just some type of power adapter.

I have 2 one like you posted it came with a E-cig and one that has a short cord that goes to the usb port the black box looks the same on both
the led changes color when your cig is charged.
