Default OTG cable with power

Hi there!
I've got this cable:

Black Color Micro USB 3.0 9Pin OTG Host Flash Disk Cable with USB Power for Samsung Galaxy Note3 N9000

Looks like when I connect battery to OTG, the power goes to external drive only, not to SGP.

I am a bit confused. OTG doesn't let me connect both Passport drive and power battery at the same time.
I never used OTG with power connection before.
Should it work like that or something wrong?..

Yes, that is how this OTG w/USB Power works.. as you can see the "USB Power" comes out of the USB Host connection (not the 9Pin Micro USB plug), so therefore the USB power is for powering the USB drive or device you are connecting to the Samsung Device... this is generally used for USB Hard Drives that require extra power to turn them on, etc.

If you wanted to have a USB Drive plugged into your NotePro and also Charge the NotePro you would need something with the USB Power coming from the USB 9Pin connector. I do not believe such a cable exists or is possible... but I could be wrong.
