Sorry to dig up an old thread, I'm actually surprised this thread hasn't been touched since October 2018.
I made a separate thread as well, but I'm wondering if anyone knows with the Shine 7 (or just the Shine series in general) if the USB 3.0 Power Mode (full LED brightness) will work with a custom sleeved USB 2.0 cable as long as it's hooked up to a USB 3.0 port? This might sound silly at first, but the reason I ask is because my understanding is that the mode has to do with power draw, and not data transfer speeds. So I'm hoping a good quality USB 2.0 cable will still work for 3.0 power mode so I can use a nicer looking custom sleeved one.
