I finally connected my L5 to a USB Hub I got from Twelvesouth
It worked excellent for a while.
It connected to a HDMi monitor
mechanical keyboard EZ Plank
And it even looked like it was charging.
Firefox ESR worked very fast
I installed an internet radio - very pleased
Bluetooth Jabra headphones connected very well - much better than my Librem 13 does
Had a really good experience.
The only things:
Suddenly it all died - possibly to do with not sufficient charging from the Hub?? even though the red dot was there all the time(meaning its charging??)(now the charging light changes repeatedly from red to magenta to red again?)
It was actually enjoyable.
