As such, with some hardware, you will find it simply won't work at all when plugged into a USB 2.0 port. A common example is one of those USB 3.0 enclusures for laptop drives that is powered entirely from USB. I have two of those myself, and I can confirm they won't work. You'll just get a blinking light indicating an error. You might be able to use a Y USB cable to supply power, but I haven't tried that.
