  • Molex Powered USB 2.0 4 Port Hub!!!!

    Ok...Perhaps I am posting something everyone knows about already but I was looking today
    for a 5v usb hub to put into my car. I was already to have to splice the molex to power it. But then there it was.....

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817801001

    Only $10.
    Check it out. On the back there is a molex connector for power.
    Am I crazy or is this fantastic.
    Another Novice?

      that is pretty handy. Granted, it only takes about 5 minutes to solder up a connector otherwise, but hey, even 5 minutes is still a time savings!

      that's the first USB hub I've seen where the manufacturer realized someone might want some more USB ports internal to their computer, without wasting a PCI slot to put in a card. smart of them
      But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

        Could someone measure the cables and post the length? I might get one if I don't need to splice, kind of defeats the purpose if I'd still need to splice cables. Thx.

          I didnt measure them but I'm guessing they are about 3....maybe 4 feet long. I would say closer to 3 though. That goes for both the power cable and the usb. The power is nice cause it doesn't steat a power it actually justs taps into one and then splits to give you one back.
          Mine is installed as of 5 minutes ago and it is fantastic.
