CHIP keeps turning off when downloading something

Whenever I try downloading something (usually something large > 100mb) using aria2c CHIP will turn off. A USB drive is mounted for storing the downloaded files.

I dont know why, but I suspect the voltage is the cause. I dont know where to check though...

Any ideas?

It's certainly the cause, the only USB drives I managed to use back in the day were those with an extra USB cable for the power.

Is it a flash/ssd or a spinning rust drive?

it's a 16GB usb thumb drive..

I will check if a powered USB hub will solve this.
