Suitable for powering and extending a Raspberry Pi
on 25 March 2013
This is a quality unit, perfect for Pi owners (and for normal PC use too of course). I bought this after doing research on the best powered hub for my Pi. It will power your Pi, as well as extending its USB slots, using only one mains plug.
It comes with a micro USB lead and a 2.5v mains power supply (UK and EU plugs included). For Pi use you will need to get yourself a second micro USB cable if you don't already have one lying around.
Use the provided micro USB cable to connect your Pi's USB slot to the hub's micro USB input. Then connect one of the hub's four USB slots into your Pi's micro USB power input, using your second cable (not provided). Connect the power supply to the hub, and you're all set up. Your Pi is powered, and now has 3 USB slots available on the hub ready to accept devices. And you've only used a single mains plug.
