That depends on how well the computer power supply is constructed, and how it responds to being pushed that hard consistently. Not only is it an issue of current draw, but when you connect multiple...

I called Rearth Recently. The rep that answered the phone told me that they are discontinuing the Ringke cases for the J3 (since Cowon no longer makes them). Once they run out, they're all gone. ...
