Ideal for the Wii U
on 3 March 2015
I use this to plug a portable external hard drive into my Wii U console. The USB port in the Wii U is not high powered enough to power the hard drive and I did not want to use an external hard drive that has to be plugged into a wall socket. This works perfectly, it uses power from two USB sockets, which could be a disadvantage but I have nothing else that I need to plug in. Now I have so much more storage space to save my downloaded games.
There are other similar situations where this would be useful, often USB ports found in TVs are not powerful enough to power a hard drive that does not have its own power source, so this would be ideal if you want to plug a portable hard drive into a TV.
