Technically it does supply 5V to usb

Tablet didn't charge at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars junk, 20 July 2014
Thought this would save taking both a mini and micro usb "brick"
Wrong - it does NOT work.
Should have known better than to think at this price it could ???
Junk - don't buy

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatifully designed, works well, good price, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent powered USB 3 hub. I use it with an ASUS tablet Win 8.1 computer. See my uploaded images.
As shown the main use is when traveling to backing up photos/videos from the USB3 card reader to the 1 TB disc.
Note that the tablet PC does NOT charge via its USB3 connector in the keyboard half, but rather via a power-only micro-USB in the display half. Hence a cable from the hub power-out socket to it. So the only mains brick I need is the one for the hub.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet and powerful, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A one way transition - before you never knew what they are about - after getting one you can't imagine how you ever managed without.
This unit, although expensive, is smooth, quiet & grinds everything. Well pleased.
Shame my grandson now only has the one arm, but its not as if he wasn't warned ....

Excellent quality, all the bits one could want, all for an amazingly low price.
The "pen" brush and 2 cloths in my "everyday" bag, the rest there when needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars very comfortable, wife loves it, but not so long lasting as a cotton garment, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These T-shirt type material nightshirts are very comfortable and my wife loves them because they are so soft to the touch.
However they are no way near so long lasting as the ordinary cotton alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish discreetee range of light fittings, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 3 off 5-light strips and 2 off of these single units for our new (enlarged) kitchen.
Very pleased with them all. They are ideal for anyone looking for tastefully discreet fittings for GU10 bulbs.
although they come with traditional bulbs, I have fitted LEDs.
Note in general for any bulbs - make sure the bulb surround is silver-coloured. I bought some which although excellent lights, had a white outer surface and don't look correct !

Will use this to power & charge my GoPro (mini usb) when travelling.

Always travel with the small light usb MICRO mains plug charger which came with my Blackberry (it has 4 different country pin types with it). use it to charge Nexus10 tablet too.

Had needed a separate brick for the GoPro, now i wont !

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not her best book, 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having very much enjoyed the previous 2 Flanders' books I have bought, this was a huge disapointment.
I came at it purely from the perspective of Victorian social history, I have no interest in Dickens - from this perspective it fails. Too long, rambles around and contains too many author-asides. This in mark contrast to the learned style of The House for instance.
Perhaps Dickens fans will enjoy it ? Sadly I didn't.
