  • Usb Hub Power supply

    If I were to buy a Usb hub with a 5v dc power supply, what would be the best way to run it? Is it absolutly nessesary to get a power inverter or is there some way to run it direct? thanks

    Some computer psu's have a 5VDC rail u can use to power it, if not... then you can buy a point of load, which converts your 12VDC car power to 5VDC.

        Well u have to check what voltage your hub uses. 5VDC is common on hubs.
        Check out the Point of loads on the mp3car store.

          If the USB hub takes 5vdc, you can wire it to a HDD power connector using the red wire, which is 5v.

          ALL PC power supplies supply 5vdc. It's necessary for hard drives, optical drives and USB.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?



          Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
