  • Can two USB hubs be powered off of one Molex connector?

    Hi All,
    The focus of the question is around physical wiring...I believe I don't draw enough on either hub to go beyond the +5v 3amp limit, but I'm wondering if there's anything bad that would / could happen if I tap the +5v line on the Molex twice, once to each hub..like current flowing in some bad way. I'm 'dangerous' as I don't have an electronics background but have hacked my way around quite a bit without killing myself yet ;-) This is probably pretty basic question, I just don't know.

    TIA,
    Per

    Nope, no problem, assuming the wiring is thick enough to handle the amperage, which should not be an issue.
