Yes im looking for one too
Im planning on getting a mac mini with four USB ports
So keyboard,mouse,speakers ,external drives all USB
And im getting a dock for my iphone & iPad
So somebody post a good hub please
I would think any hub can charge an iPad, just very slowly. The iPad draws more power than any powered hub supplies.
This is correct, any usb hub will charge the ipad, unless the screen is on then it cant supply enough juice, if you keep it plugged in it will charge, just slower.
I believe you need a high-powered USB port. I.e. USB 4.0 or some other über-voltage charger.
USB 4.0 huh.....inventing your own standards now?
Apparently they don't exist because they would violate the USB spec, which rates the current output at 0.5A. I've been wanting one, too.
The iPad charger that Apple sells is designed to charge the iPad and provides more power.
...and hydrazine is often used for rockets in space, but neither are USB hubs.
This is the reason.
Yes, what he said - I use it that way a lot. I would get a powered hub with more then 4 ports, they get used up fast.
I found this device when staying at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco for Dreamforce last week. It has 2 USB ports, one of which puts out 2.1 amps for tablets and 2 electrical outlets on top. I had my iPad 2, iPhone 4S and Targus backup battery all charging off this every night and it worked great. I immediately started looking for one when I got home and I just stumbled across it tonight.
This looks promising!
You gave me false hope!
Not compatible with Apple SuperDrive, or other USB devices requiring more than USB 3.0 standard 900mA (.9 Amp) power per port. Hub is not a standalone charger: NOT recommended for standalone charging iPhone, iPad, Android, or other devices- many devices will charge only when a host PC is connected to the hub.
the one under my use..
I wish recommend this which most of my friend speak highly of. If you need to extend the usb hub ports and charge your devices at the same time, this is a good choice.
If you don't need the function of charging, I think you should go for a worth-trust brand with good quality. Many options can be searched on Amazon. ebay.etc.
