    I'm trying to run a USB endoscope off a Note 8.

    The symptoms point to not enough power.
    I used to be able to buy a cable which had three USB connections, one was male to plug into my computing device, one had a battery source on it, and the a third to plug into the equipment (camera, hard drive, etc.).

    But now I'm having trouble narrowing anything down that will work. Does anyone have recommendations?

    Thanks but nope.
    I need to provide a battery power source on one leg on the "computer" or "tablet" side of the cable.

    You could use a standard OTG cable, and then plug into a powered USB hub which would provide power to your devices...
