Ok,cheers,that's a shame.
Can these things be used to charge multiple devices if it is plugged into a charging plug rather than a computer etc? (ie. does it provide enough power to do this?)

So, it's not for that purpose.

Sorry, probably should have read the full thing!
Random question, will this work on the switch or ps4?
I had one of these and was dire, a passive hub just doesn’t work with anything much. Save your money for a mains powered hub for £6

This is better as it has the option to connect a PSU so that you can actually power all USB3 devices!

Connecting USB devices


At first I couldn't work out if you were being sarcastic, then I thought "what other answer is there?"

If you run out of USB ports you can use one of these hubs. It then allows you to connect more devices to your computer or whatever. Keyboard. Mouse. Storage device. Whatever else you want. But it will only occupy one port on your host machine.

Can't see that in the specs anywhere, other than from a customer comment.

you really need a power supply if you're going to add 4 devices. A single USB3 port on a PC will supply 900mA but then you're going to be dividing that by 4 = 225mA which is probably fine if all you're going to put in there is mice/keyboard/memory stick but anything that needs any power is going to fail. If you add a hard disk that pulls power from the USB then it's probably not going to work. Not voting btw. Just think you're better off with a powered one.
These are amazing I've bought a few at £6 and thought that was cheap. Great performance. Stick in external drives, media servers, thumb drives, then activate when required.
Great product, I bought one for my LED strips stuck to my desk which turn on when I turn on my PC

I've bought the chinese clone/copy of the Sodial USB3 hub and it does indeed have a 5v DC input so that you can actually add a external PSU and have a decent working hub.

As others have stated, this hub will be fine for low current or self powered USB devices (Keyboard, Mouse, printer, flash drives .etc .etc). However start to chuck USB powered devices like 2.5" mechanical HD's and these hubs start to seriously struggle especially if using significant lengths of USB3 cable to connect to hosts (Volt drop).

The below hub I got works great even when connected using 10m of USB3 cable, I simply cut up an old 5v phone charger and soldered on the correct size DC plug:

Here it is on ebay £3.71 :-)

I have one of these as my work laptop only has 2 USB slots and I use a wireless mouse and headset as well as a docking tower which is plugged in by USB, also charges my wireless headset if needed

OK, thank you for the info
I have one of these, along with a similar 4 port usb 3.0 Anker hub, I liked the idea of the switches so wanted to give it a try, but i've found it a bit problematic, as others have mentioned it is a fussy hub when it comes to what devices it works with, and it is not simply a case of powered vs unpowered as the Anker hub is also unpowered and works with most of my devices that fail to work with the Sabrent.

This works with Nintendo Switch. You'll need it if you to use 4 or more wired controllers.

Depends on what you want it for. I have one for extra controllers on switch and it works really good for that.

I’ve got one in my car. Handy for charging iPad etc for kids to use when driving. Also got usb stick in with music works great.
Nice price and it looks like a good little unit, on the look out for a solid mains powered usb hub though, the hunt goes on...
I can add heat now, it's not an add on anymore.
