Do we have to use power adapter, if we are using one or two ports for reading flash drives? Sep 3, 2014
The hub will NOT work with out power. I tried it out with one USB drive and it will not read the drive until AC is added to the unit.
International use? I'm wondering if the power adapter that comes with this hub is capable of handling the input from a European socket (I'm aware I would need a plug adapter)? Aug 7, 2012
Input rating on the label is 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz, 0.8A
No. No mounting stuff.
The Anker hub, as most (except those designed for use with lap-tops), come with a power transformer/cable. I was attracted to this one as it supplied more power than ones I had used previously and would hopefully be more reliable. And it seems to be doing well.
Absolutely does. Just make sure you use the 2.1amp output port, of which there is one.
Can I run five or more USB-powered portable hard drives on this hub at the same time? Will all get enough power to run? Oct 12, 2013
I run 7 powered Seagate 3tb drives and it work fine. each drive has it own power transformer. I also, at times, run 4 power Seagate drives and 3 non-powered portable drives. it work fine.
I am not looking for this to function as a hub for data, but as a charging station. Will this charge two ipads and other devices simultaneously? Jun 10, 2013
Hi, Jaxie - Yes, it will. It has a dedicated 2.1 Amp "charging only" port, which doesn't connect to a PC. The remaining PC-connected ports will also charge at the same time, but with a lower amperage (I think around 0.9 A each, based on the tech blurb about the device).
I am currently driving three WD My Book hard discs from the hub (2 Tb, 1Tb, 0.5 Tb), plus a printer and a scanner with no problems.
I suppose you CAN charge your iPAD Air, as long as you have a cable compatible with the Anker USB hub. I've charged my iPhone using it. I cannot answer the second question about syncing. Sorry.
I have Anker USB 3.0 seven port hub (model h7928-u3- powered). It works great. I only have one USB 3.0 outlet on my computer. Can I hook up a second powered Anker USB 3.0 seven port hub to one of the ports on the one I have? Will it work to support a... Feb 1, 2014
I would think you could from all I have read but to be sure why not ask your question of those who would know the answer here http://www.ianker.com/support/ Hope that helps.
