  • Any suggestions for powered USB hubs?

    So now that powered USB hubs are allowed for connecting USB cameras, does anyone have suggestions on powered USB hubs they've used successfully? Also, what other things did you use for providing the power?

    Try this powered USB hub. You can connect 2 USB cameras OR both Rev expansion hubs and a camera to this USB hub.

    I would use a battery pack to power the USB hub so as to isolate the USB hub from the power draw of the motors and servos.

    Flip the switch on the USB hub to recharge the RC phone. If you supply power to the battery pack, you can charge the battery pack and the RC phone at the same time.

    For modern robotics, connect the PDM to the USB hub. For hybrid, also connect the Rev expansion hub to the USB hub.
