Works great for the Galaxy Nexus,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: C&E CNE16187 Micro USB OTG to USB 2.0 Adapter (Electronics)I ordered two to use with my Galaxy Nexus. At first, it took a minute for my phone to recognize the adapter. Now, it will instantly recognize everything connected to the adapter. I am able to power a lit keyboard and a mouse attached to an unpowered USB hub connected to the adapter without problems. Mounting a flash drive works great as well.
Be warned, using a keyboard and mouse will drain battery life quickly and there isn't a way to charge while using the adapter.
For other Galaxy Nexus users: The phone doesn't have drivers included to natively mount USB storage devices. Download StickMount on the market if you have root access and mounting flash drives will be quick and simple.

I wonder what would happen if I connected a USB splitter and connected one end to a charger, would that solve the problem of power?

I've thought about that as well. Never got around to trying it. Let us know if you get a chance to test it.

Have you tried a powered USB hub? It may save the battery drain from the mouse and keyboard.
