USB self powered hub, which one
I was wondering which 4-port USB 2.0 hub I should get for my CarPC? Here's what I have:
Asus R2H 7" TabletPC
Gyration Wireless Keybard (USB)
Haicom GPS (USB)
Griffin Powermate (USB)
External DVD writer (USB self powered)
So far the Gyration works with 1 USB hub only (USB 1.1 specs) - self powered, any other ones that I plugged into, it just doesn't connect to the keyboard.
Then I found this one:
and I was able to get everything connected (except for the USB DVD writer) and worked great, except this one it will not function without an AC adapter. So I have to start the car in order to use anything. Trying to avoid that if possible.
At the moment, I can give up the Gyration keyboard as I don't really use it that often, but for the remaining 3 devices, would it be do-able with a self-powered hub? Or it will run out of juice since I'll have a DVD writer and Powermate?
The TabletPC has 3 USB ports, but the other one is at the top where it doesnt' have enough clearance to plug an USB plug into. The 3rd one is on the opposite side of all the plugs are where I'm trying to avoid - to keep everything nice!
Any suggestions? Thanks.
