The extra sauce with this hub is that you can power it with an external 5V adapter. There’s a 2 Amp adapter included, which should be plenty to run even power-hungry cameras, WiFi adapters, and flash disks. The hub is fused for two amps using a resettable PTC fuse. Unlike cheaper hubs, this one has a single chip that provides all 7 ports instead of having two 4 port hubs chained inside. This is a great companion to your Bone or Pi, as they only have one or two USB ports and limited powering capability – we’ve tested it with great success on both as well as our Mac and Windows desktop machines
Comes with a 7-port hub, a USB extender cable, 5V 2A UL listed power adapter that can be used with 100-240VAC wall power.
7 USB 2.0 ports
Multiple Transaction Translator supports low-speed and high-bandwidth USB devices
Wrap-around cable protects port when not in use
Versatile bus or AC powered with over-current protection; hot-swappable
