Some expert suggested me OTG usb hub and connect external hdd...new smartphones have type C power connector and have 15w to 25w powe connector aa old mobiles have different connectors and only supports 1.5 w to max chargers.

Aa usb hub amplifies and balance power between multiple connectors

My queries

2. As external usb hdd or ssd casings don't have any external usb power how much power wattage it need and how much power do usb hub gives

Any solution help advice opinion trick to connect device. ( I may use that m.2 drive in my new desktop build later.
