Hey everyone, So I'm aware that the Nintendo 64 can be powered by 5v by cutting or removing the pin and 3.3v but I am just wondering how many amps does it take to power/turn on the console? Theoretically is it possible to power the n64 with a micro usb port for 5v and then wire that to a down step converter to get 3.3v or is the 1amp typical of micro usb not enough? I assume it's not but worth asking anyways just in case. I included a crude paint photo as a sort of reference to what I'm thinking and also it would not be for the sake of a portable, it would just be to replace the n64 power supply with something more convenient.
