    No. It only works when directly connected to the MBA, because it provides more power than the USB spec, that hubs adhere to.

    There may be some that will work, but I don't believe that there is a comprehensive list.

    I bought a Micro Innovations 4-Port Hi-Speed USB Travel Hub (USB220N) and an AC adapter (5 volt 2.6 amps) with a 2.3mm connector and the SD runs rather well connected to the hub. I've also attached my MagicJack adapter (Internet Phone) and they run at the same time.

    I bought it at BestBuy for $19.99 plus tax.

    I bought the AC adapter at Radio Shack for $19.99 which included (6) different tips and it's a variable 3 volts - 18 volts.
