IMO these passive hubs are of limited usefulness unless you have a lot of powered devices (such as external drives) to connect. I don't think you can run more than one or two USB-powered devices off this at once.

Many still don't realize that devices that aren't self-powered, like portable drives, need powered hubs.

In most cases, I still look for powered hubs anyway, or at least hubs that can be powered even if they don't come bundled with a wall adapter.

The best are those which use a standard USB/Micro connector for power, instead of a barrel connector. Most people already have the cables, and probably have a spare unused wall adapter that came with a phone or whatever, which can serve to power the hub.

If not, there are myriad options on Amazon.

The size is cool. The energy transfer is great! Works and easy, no setup just plug and play, I really like the compact size of this hub and it is usb 3.0. I have been looking for a portable hub like this for my laptop.
