    More USB ports on xbox one?

    Currently using all 3 of the usb ports on my xbox one (Charging dock, External HDD and 1 for Rocksmith cable) i Have 2 Rocksmith cables so can rock out with the wife but i need another USB port, Does anyone know how i add more?

    Can i just buy a USB hub and use it? Saw online say you need a USB 3.0 Hub but i cant seem to find one (well at a reasonable price).

    Thanks all.

    I could but its a hassle as its plugged into the back of the xbox one so i have to keep moving it forward to get behind so its not the easiest on my current tv unit

    Don't do it. Just use a USB plug like a phone charger for the extra socket

    Plug it in your phone charger. Using too many USB's drains power from the motherboard. Microsoft condemned using USB fans on the Xbox 360 for the same reason

    Ah so plug in my Charging dock into a usb plug? As i cant plug Rocksmith cable as it needs to be into the console for it to work.

    Ahh yeah they need to be plugged in, nevermind that was an oversight on my part. Does the charger dock need to be plugged into the console too? i know the 360 version had to be, wouldnt charge from another power source it was annoying

    does your tv have a usb on it? could also use this to charge? this might not work depending on power drain but it works for my wii.

    Will try plug the charging dock into another source like ps4/tv

    No good for a charging dock as all the sockets share the same power input

    I will admit to not realising there was two USB ports on the back of the Xbox One so bought this.

    I have an external hard drive plugged in and our charging dock and I've had no problems thus far. I've also now connected our bluetooth speaker to it for charging and my partners controller has died mid game so had that plugged in as well with no problems.

    Yes it will work but will charge at a reduced rate due to all 4 sockets sharing a single power source, basically takes longer to charge.
