    The recommended USB hub isn't exactly what you're looking for, but they're pretty good at evaluating the entire category. USB hubs

    To support hard drives, you need one with power adapter.
    I have one of the HooToo USB hubs. It works great. Mine is the HT-UH010 with 7 USB ports and 2 charging ports. May not be enough for you. But they have a 10-port model under the same link.
