Depending on what model you’re talking about. They are outdated.
I currently run a Gekko USB miner.(gets about 1-3 cents per day, not “earns” , It cost more to run)
All I really find is UBS stick miners and the R909 . Both are old and outdated, likely never to ROI.

In 2017 both of those miners rocked. So unless you’re looking at or referring to a newer miner, look somewhere else. Because the company is only 2 people and have not made a website in the last 7 years, I doubt they are making new competitive models.

Plenty of other comparable priced miners are available that are much more viable. Any of the new (2022-23’ish) Mini miners will out-mine Gekko hands down. I won’t list any one specifically, but other post/threads here talk about them constantly, they are a hot topic currently.

Then comes the issue that Gekko require a 24/7 computer Or Raspberry Pi. If you have a free Pi or Comp, you might profit more doing node mining.

So what model are you referring to? If it’s a new model, I’d love to see a link. I kind of wish Gekko Science was still producing, they are OG and earned our respect.

I’ll throw two cents at the wall. They are cool and fun to start out on. They will teach you what you need at a cheap price. At least when I bought them they were cheap, like super cheap. I ran them making a few cents a day on ZergPool for whatever coin I wanted to be paid out in by mining BCH. Now I’ve moved on to bigger miners and I put them on solo CK Pool and left them be. Will you get rich absolutely not, will you learn on a cheap miner so you don’t bork an S9, yes. They really don’t drink any electric but also aren’t power houses to make you rich.
