Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

It is possible to use some USB hubs without a power supply, however, doing so may prevent the USB hub or certain high-power USB peripherals from operating.  It is always recommended to use an included power supply with a USB hub when possible.

When a power adapter is not used on a hub that comes with a power adapter, power is drawn from the USB port on the computer and then divided between the ports on the hub. This reduces the power delivery to individual ports and high-powered USB peripherals, such as external hard drives, may not start.

On USB hubs that can use a power adapter, more power can be supplied to USB ports than what is possible with a single USB port.

If your USB peripherals require power adapters, they probably do not require power from the USB port and can be used on a USB hub without a power adapter. With USB peripherals that use power adapters, the USB ports on the hub are only used for data transfer and do not draw power from the hub.

USB peripherals that require low power (for example, keyboards and mice) can be used on hubs without a power adapter, in conjunction with other low-power USB peripherals. In this case, power is drawn from the computer's USB port, as described above.

Solid Construction, well designed USB 3.0

By: macphot1970 - 12/11/2017
This is a great little USB 3.0 hub featuring 3 USB-A and 1 USB-c Connections. I found the construction of the hub to be excellent and I like the fact it is metal and has some weight to it as it helps keep the hub in place when using it on a desk with multiple devices plugged in. The addition of the USB-C port is a very nice option to have. The power connection has adapters for other counties if you live outside of north america. overall this is an excellent product will nothing to dislike

Perfect USB add-on

By: Andrew11 - 01/04/2018
This is an excellent USB hub. It’s solid and sturdy and the ports are on top (where I think they work best), and well-spaced so you don’t feel crowded. Brings 3 fast USB ports where I need them, right in front of my keyboard. And adds a USB-C on the edge for future devices. There are lights beside each port when you have an active device, and when you eject them in Windows, the light turns off to let you know it’s safe to remove. A very nice feature!

Reliable and excellent performance

By: Nick_101 - 04/15/2018
What can you say about a USB hub besides simple facts? It works, and it works well. Solid build, excellent performance. Great for adding a USB-C port to older computers. Small enough to be part of the go-bag, and sturdy enough to take a beating. Cat knocked it off the wife's desk numerous times while she was trying it out. Dented the case too. Still works just fine!
