  • Car Plugs for USB hubs?

    Does anyone know of any cigarette lighter plugs for USB Hubs? My setup has 2 Hubs and Im worried some devices will need extra power. Although the PC has a total of 11 onboard USB ports, Im worried I will run out of space and be forced to use hubs and I dont want to have devices that do not get enough power.

    good luck finding a usb hub that rus off of a cigarette lighter socket. What most people do is use one of the 5 volt lines coming from their computers Power Supply and solder a connection on the other end that fits the powered USB hub.

      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        It wouldnt be much a problem picking up a 5V usb hub, then getting a 5V car adapter, and soldering the hub barrel connector to the car adapter

          Here are some POL regulators if that would work better for you:

            Jimmy, that looks like what I need, THANX!!!, but I think what i am going to try to do is have all the power hungry devices on the onboard usb ports. Then all the little things like the bluetooth can go on the hubs........... but now that im counting I may just be able to use only the onboard.......... and not need hubs

              alot of newer car phone chargers are usb based, which means its very easy to push 5v to a hub. Problem is they dont put out enough amperage for a hub. So a POL is the way to go.

                I'm not sure if a cig -> usb charger for ipod will do it or not. I saw them but not sure about amp rating.

                  Im not going to worry about it.... Im sure I can get all the power eating devices on the main board usb and all the little things on the hubs
