Self powered stand alone hub – 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub with External Power Source (110~240V AC Adapter) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- powers up to 7 devices directly.
- can use stand alone, or as a hub via computer with USB cable
- has a stand if you wish to use it
- has a funky blue power light
- usb 1 and 2 compatible
I bought it to be used as a stand alone USB charger for devices that use USB/mini USB adapters. For example, right now I have it charging my iPod shuffle, DX iPod shuffle, HTC Hero phone, and some other devices :)
Cons:
My one came with the wrong adapter plug for the self powered power adapter, so it was useless. Luckily, I'm using the USB input with a power plug that has a USB cable output, this is where it lost 5 stars.

Bottomline:
If you get the right power adapter, then this is a very good product for the price. Another fine product from DX.
