USB Condenser Mic shuts off after 1 hour

Trying to help a friend of mine resolve a problem with his Senal UB-440 USB condenser mic (since I recommended he buy it for his webcasting setup). He's been using it for the last couple of weeks, but found that it dies after being used for an hour. He's been forced to switch to another mic for 10-15 minutes, then the UB-440 will start working again.

I've been working with broadcast mics for 40 years, and have never seen anything like this. He thought it might be an overheating problem, but I'm not sure whether there are any components that generate enough heat to cause that to happen. Senal's customer service department is shut down for several days because of a holiday, so I thought I'd see if anyone here might have a suggestion for solving this.

Thanks!

What does he have it plugged into? Maybe what ever USB Port he is plugging it into is current limited and after and hour just shuts down OR he has a defective USB microphone. Please let us know what you find.

Thanks, Tom...will check with him on that. I believe he's plugging it straight into his Mac desktop, though.

I had to get one of these to check the current draw of some UBS products. https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Multi...216052&sr=8-11
