3.0 out of 5 stars OK but some flaws, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anker USB 3.0 7-Port Hub + 2 Charge-Only Ports - 5V 2.1A and 5V 1.5A, 12V 4A Power Adapter and 3.5-foot USB 3.0 Cable Included (Personal Computers)
Charges most of my devices from the normal outlet data ports, but cannot charge an iPad from a data port. At the end of the device are 2 charging ports that can handle an iPad, but obviously with no data, so you cannot sync and charge at the same time. I also noticed it cannot support powering of a Mac Superdrive. The most annoying thing for me is the massive PSU and the hub itself that is activated by an electronic button. This means for me (where I turn off all my devices by one central switch) when I come to power on the devices in the morning, the hub default state is off - so my keyboard does not respond until I click on the switch at the rear of the hub and wait for the blue lights. I just leave my devices in standby all the time now. Why have an electronic power switch in the first place - it is not required actually.

Dear customer,

Thanks for sharing your product review.

We are sorry to know the hub does not meet your need, the charging-port is for charging purpose only and the USB ports are for data-transferring only. And we hope you did not miss the notes in listing, below is a copy.
* Not compatible with SuperDrive and WD passport hard disk.
* The charging port does not support data transfers.

To meet your need, we recommend another type of Anker hubs with power button Anker USB 3.0 7-Port Hub + 1 Charging Port, with 12V 4A Power Adapter and 4-foot USB 3.0 Cable

Anker offer hassle-free warranty, if you would like to make an exchange, could you please email us directly at support@ianker.com with your Amazon order #.

Best Regards!
