Well fair enough, the key bit about that device is
''These supplies employ a unique variable output resistance so the
voltage output can emulate a battery's response (U.S. Patent No.
But the lab supplies everyone actually uses do not have this feature
AFAIK, they're "ideal" voltage sources regardless of current.

That must be a recent innovation, or you are actually running off USB
with a battery just sitting there, because GTA02 charging has never
worked AFAICT until the patches of a couple of days ago.
