Product Description

Featuring a clean, compact design, this USB 2.0 hub enables two devices to share a single available USB port with full USB 2.0 compatibility and performance.

Common Uses

Common uses include connecting both keyboard and mouse via a single USB cable, for industrial environments where space is a premium, and for any situation where a simple USB 2 port splitter is required. Great for travel due to the ultra compact design and built in 12-inch USB cable.

Charging

Hub is not a standalone charger. Functions as a USB hub only and will not charge phones or tablets: No special charging functionality for charging an iPad, iPhone, or other tablet and smartphone devices with or without a PC connected. Not BC 1.1 / 1.2 compatible.

Power
This bus-powered hub shares available power (500mA) from the single upstream USB port to each of the two downstream USB ports. Because power is shared, devices connected via the hub should be low powered (keyboards, mice, etc), or self-powered (printers, powered hubs, powered external hard drives).

Needed extra USB ports works great .

I plugged two flash drives in and it worked great, then I tried a flash drive and my gaming mouse, and it still did its job.

My monitor has one USB connector and the keyboard I was using had none, so I couldn't plug in both the mouse and keyboard - enter this tiny 2-port hub - it works like a charm.

This product may not meet your mechanical needs for SIMULTANEOUS use with 2 flash drives.

The product seems to meet the electrical standards described in its specifications.

I intended to use the device in an automobile to expand an available USB port to support 2 flash drives.

See the uploaded pictures. The flash drive cases touch and both drives cases place stress on the drive and port connections. UPDATE: Can't upload my user images to this review :(

You should observe the inability to mount 2 flash drives (I tried various drives) in a manner that permits tight electrical and mechanical connections. Such tight connections are important in a moving vehicle.

I suggest buyers with similar needs consider the spacing between hub ports (vertical and horizontal).

Communications with Plugable Technologies concerning this matter were prompt and professional. I would consider using the company for other products.

This USB (2) port hub does exactly what it's supposed to do...it gives you two (adjacent) fully functional USB ports. It is well-made and has been very dependable. The only shortcoming for me is the connecting cable could be a bit longer. Overall, for most purposes intended, this is a fine product.

I'm only using this for power two devices, no data transfer so I can't comment on throughput or anything related. The thing has a good build quality and works fine for me.

This is a great little item if you need additional ports. I used mine to connect my external hard-drive and printer to my laptop. I just plugged in my two usb ports into this hub, then connected the hub to my computer! Easy. Works great. Everything seems to be working as well as it did before the hub was connected. I followed the recommended devices that were best suited to using this device, so I haven't experienced any problems. I am quite satisfied with this purchase. I won't hestitate to buy another if I need additional ports. Also, this company stands behind its product, so you can't go wrong with purchasing this item. I highly recommend it if you need additional ports; however, use it for low-powered items.

The plugable usb 2.0 hub designed to accommodate 2 usb devices where only one was previously accessible, is a great product. Unfortunately it did not suit my purpose. I bought the item for use in my car usb port. Upon plugging two devices into the hub, my car stereo immediately informed me that i had exceeded the maximum power allowed for the usb port. I would assume that would be because the car designed the usb port to use one device at a time. No fault of the hub. Ideal use would be for a laptop or computer i would think.

Did not work in the application I bought it for. I wanted to use it in my car so I could have both my phone and ipod hooked up at the same time. Would not do both.
