Powering the console from USB ?

Anyone else considered the same ?

Mu documentation just state that it need at least 3x1,5 = 4.5 from the Batteries and that rechargeable at 1,2 is to low (3.6V)

Since my slug has to be povered i thought why not let the same psu power the console over the USB ?

(I used to power my slug via usb from a 2,5" psu - When idle the setup it only took 6,5W measured at the 230V plug so easily driven by linksys's psu - powering the slug via the usb also solves the boot-after-power-failure issue)
