  • High current USB hub/power supply

    I am installing a tablet, MiFi, bluetooth receiver and a couple of other peripheral's in the car. The all run off USB, but are quite high current. The tablet will need 2A and everything else will need 1A.

    Does anyone know of a suitable power supply or hub? Or any ideas about the best way to power it all?

    Thanks!

    So what, you want 7amps?

    If you can get by with 5, which I'm sure you can since The mifi will run off 500mA, and the bluetooth reciever probably uses less than 200mA, this might do it: http://www.amazon.com/Step-Voltage-C...o+5v+converter

    btw, googling helps, that was the first result I found.

      5A would probably do.

      I did google and found this:

      Was just wondering if anyone knew of anything purpose built for USB etc.
