• @Robin: USB devices must be in low-power mode (max. 100 mA) initially. They can negotiate high-power mode (max. 500 mA for USB2.0), and only then they are allowed to use more power.
    For the Pico itself it's not an issue.
    But if you want connect additional devices to the Pico and power them by the USB port it might be an issue. While most PCs deliver 500mA per port some PCs and laptops don't. Connecting this sensor would draw slightly above 100mA, so it might damage the USB port (worst case scenario), that's why I asked.
