UCB-C Power To Pigtail Cable

It would be very nice (maybe I missed it) to have a USB-C power cable that terminates into plain wires, for connection to any power source.  This would be a nice feature of integrating the OEM version.

A lot of those are on the market but limited to 5V since USB needs some intelligence for higher voltages: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/265832/how-does-usb-power-delivery-work-with-voltages-above-5v-without-damaging-5v-peri

So, is the SpectranV6 using the default (5V @ 1A) or one of the other "profiles"?

What would Aaronia recommend when embedding the OEM version into a "closed" design?  Possibly design a power supply circuit using a device like the TPS65982?

USB C standard is 5V with max 3A so a total 15W.

The SPECTRAN V6 follows the PD USB standards.

You can use any USB PD compatible circuit to drive the SPECTRAN V6.

For full functionality you need to provide USB-PD 3.0 9V @ 3A.

I will add this to the hardware request section, but wanted to state it on this thread;

It would be good for the OEM version of the V6 (and above) to get power from a brick, making it even easier to integrate.  I would recommend to implement a locking type of connector.  It's a waste of a USB-C port to simply tap power from, and generally not as robust/clean.
