Would Bluetooth work this way?

Asked by intro24 (1399 points ) April 14th, 2012

I’m wondering if a Bluetooth adapter such as this one would operate if it were simply given power (if I were to plug it into this, for example). And by “operate” I’m asking would it broadcast a Bluetooth signal that another Bluetooth device could detect? I’m fully aware that just plugging it in to a power source isn’t what you’re supposed to do with it but I need to know if it would start to send a signal or if it needs to interface with an operating system and what not to do that. Thanks

Yes, it would send a signal, but a totally pointless one, and the device probably wouldn’t connect.
