This EasyAcc USB 3.4 Port Hub Bus Powered and Self Powered Hub is the BEST ONE I have ever tried!,
This review is from: EasyAcc® Superspeed USB 3.0 4 Port Bus-Powered and Self-Powered 2-in-1 Hub with 3.3 ft USB 3.0 Cable for Mac,iMac,MacBook Pro Air,Ultrabooks,Microsoft Surface RT,Laptops,Raspberry Pi,and any PC,Black (Electronics)
Since I own a laptop, there are only three USB ports available -- one is for my Wireless USB Mouse and the other is for my printer so that leaves me with just one free USB port! Sound familiar?
+ Since I like to read several flash drives, this one plugged into my free USB Port allows me to plug in 4 flash drives!
+ This I found to work to read 4 flash drives in my laptop and in SEVERAL of my Android Tablets that are (OTG Compatible). OTG means On the Go - if you buy a special adapter, you can plug in the USB end to the tablet (or phone) and then a flash drive etc and read it. **In this case, I plugged in 4 flash drives from 4GB to 32GB and the tablets read it when I used this EasyAcc Hub.
+ This HUB is the best quality that I have found.
Highly recommend this to all!

Do you HAVE to used the AC Adapter if you are only using flash drives and such?

For Flash Drives I did NOT have to use the AC Adapter. However, on one of my my Desktop Hard-drives I made sure that I did use the AC Adapter because it is an LARGE HARD-DRIVE that requires power. Some do and some do not, if it does not power up then you probably need the AC Adapter.
What I will suggest to you is this: Much of the time for Flash drives, no you should not need it. But keep the adapter handy just in case. It will depend on what you are trying to plug in it.
Also, when I used this on my OTG Adapter for my Samsung tablet, I plugged in flash drives and I did not need to use the AC power. However, on tablets, even with OTG Adapters, a portable hard-drive the tablet will try to read OK but cannot due to the portable Hard-Drive has too many power requirements for tablets at least on my Tab 2, Tab 3 ones.

Did any of your tablets happen to be a Nexus 7? I have the 1st gen (2012) version, and I want to purchase this hub along with a 128 GB flash drive to expand its memory, so it would be reassuring to know that it works. I know I don't need the hub to use a flash drive, but I also want to have other things connected at the same time.
