Recently I keep getting low voltage warnings when programming my Attiny13A devices with HV.  Anyone seen these warnings before?  Is there a component on the Dragon that is perhaps failing?

Thanks...

When the Dragon was new (15+? years ago) they had a suicide tendency if powered from a "weak" power source.

If I remember well there's an SMPS in it which just keeps on pulling more current from the input in an attempt to push up the output voltage.

One of the solutions was to power it from a powered USB hub.
