Smile Vga adapter , that works without ext power?

Hi

I was wondering if anyone has come across a mhl vga adapter that doesn't require an ext power source to work?

Often I find my self in meetings, where the projector is vga input only, and more often then not the power sockets are a tad to far for practicality. So l'd love a solution that doesn't require a 6 foot long charging cable or an external battery.

Tested 2 vga adapters from dx.com and both requre vga for output to work

While on the subject, anyone found an HDMI adapter that doesn't need ext power?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Can't see it being possible for vga since we are talking about digital to analogue conversion, which can't be done without the power.

It should be possible, i had a microhmdi to vga adapter for my transformer prime, which is also digital to analog and it didnt need power. Not 100% sure though ��

I think that needs ext power. I'm looking for a free standing solution. ..
