If you’re thinking that there’s no way a USB port can power an Apple TV continuously, you’re partially correct. The USB Power Cable is actually a 2000mAh battery pack that is powered by the TV’s USB port. It stores excess power from the USB port and then releases it when the Apple TV requires more power than the USB port can source. So by default, the Mission Power Cable is using passthrough energy to power the Apple TV, and then backup battery power when power demands are higher. Mission says that it’s able to run an Apple TV for hours without issue, and that was true in our testing.

More videos may be found on the MacRumors YouTube channel. The USB Power Line from Mission, priced at $24.99, is a handy little addition that allows you to ditch your Apple TV power cable. If you have a current TV with USB ports, you may avoid needing a separate power adapter by putting your Apple TV into your TV.
