Default Internal USB Devices Questions - 12-23-2008, 07:07 AM

I'd like to install an internal 16GB flash drive on my Mini 9, and I have a few questions.

1.Does the useless WWAN slot with pinpads have active connections?
2, Is the USB D+ and D- pins already occupied in the SSD or WLAN slot? If not, then those can be potential internal USB slots as well.
3. Does anyone know how much more the battery drains with a USB device plugged in, such as a flash drive or a USB hub?
