  • 12v USB Hub - $29.99 :-)

    Tigerdirect has the Ultra ULT33056 7 port USB Hub for $29.98 and it takes 12v DC in (yes, 12v, not 5v). With Goggle checkout you can even get $5 off, if you add a filler item for $1.

    would be good for someone who bought it to check if the 5V out on the usb ports are stabilised, as this probably wasn't designed for fluctuating voltage.

      Can almost garuntee it requires regulated 12v. Try to hook that up to car power and watch it go boom.

        Input: DV 12V 2A

        99% sure as well it doesnt have voltage regulation. not much different then a 5v setup in that case to be honest..

          Yeah, I guess you guys are right, I just got a little excited seeing a 12v one at a good price. I did order one, so we'll see if I fry it or not.

            either way, its still a good deal in my opinion.
            You get a massive 7 usb port and all u have to do is connect it to ur psu's 12V and you're good to go.

              i agree with punky - or you can get MP3CAR's Power Controller Card which costs $25 bucks for use with your monitor and use your existing USB hub.

                Quick method for regulating 12+ to 12v steady. There's a voltage drop off of around 1v or so. Using a 7505 or 7509, you can get regulated 5v or 9v too respectively.

                Note: Less then 1 amp load. You cannot get regulated 3amps by just using 3 7512s or the like, so don't try.

                  If you want unregulated 12-24v in, you could buy our p5usb. (currently 50$ with rebate)

                  If you want to use the above product on a budget, you could solder into the 12v rail coming of the atx power supply to use the above hub.

                      which device are you referring to specifically when you say "this"? Which power supply are you using?

                        TigerDirect is garbage. I tried to buy a $280 camcorder from them 2 weeks ago and they wanted me to fax them identification.....WTF? I asked why and he said, "We require it for all orders above $500." Okay.......math fail. I canceled that and another $250 order I was going to make, they're braindead.

                            i have not had any problems with tiger direct, and have gotten all sorts of stuff from them, granted though, there is a outlet store near me, so i just go there, so i can't speak to much on the online side of things.

                              How can each of the 7 ports be guaranteed 500ma with only a 2A power supply?
