Does it give enough power to get a 500GB HDD spinning up and running? Or will I need an external power source?

Many thanks in advance

No, a regular Western Digital "My Passport" USB HDD.

My Nexus 5 provides enough power without needing a y-cable/external power. But thats probably because it has a snapdragon 800 chipset.

The Tab S uses an Exynos 5 so I'm worried it won't be able to power up the drive.

Anyone tried a USB HDD with the tab S?

Many thanks in advance
