As long as you plug it into the wall with the adapter, there shouldn't be any problem. I run 3 off of mine, as well as a keyboard, mouse, ex.
can I run 10 USB webcams that record vision and audio at the same time with this device? Oct 20, 2013
You can if the webcams are not only powered by the USB hub. The power supply that powers the hub and devices does not provide adequate power for more than a few devices. USB sticks and such this would be ok, but with hardware, no not recommend. I would buy smaller hubs that are powered and chain them together and that should let you power 10 USB webcams and a better brand, let would have a better power supply. I got 2 D-LINK powered hubs and those work great with no issues.

Can I use this without my computer and just use it to charge many items with the USB ports? Nov 16, 2013
In general you can charge USB devices on a powered hub with out a computer. I do it with my FitBit, cellphone and my son's 3DXL. As far as this hub is concerned, it under powered. Their 10 port has more power and USB 3.I bought the 12 found it not capable to power 6 devices at 2.5 watts and reviewed them with my experience. They responded to tell me in my needs I should use their 10 port and return the 12. I have done that and the 10 port is doing the job.
I don't know what you are seeing but the switches are both on the end of the strip. I've been using mine for a while and plan to get another when needed. I highly recommend it.
I believe the unit only works when plugged in. It has on/off switches for each bank of 6 USB and they light up blue on the switch is on and that is the only time connected devices are energized according to my observation.
