    Generic powered usb hub question

    Does anyone have any experience with these ( http://cgi.ebay.com/7-Port-USB-2-0-H...item4156c6cbc8 )and if they actually work as a powered? I inherited one form my bro and am currently using it but haven't tried powering it. How can I test it? If I unplug the usb cable coming from the comp and just hook up the power would that tell me if its working? As in the the devices should light up?

    There should be a small light that will illuminate when it's plugged in to an AC source.

    I figured I'll just grab my multimeter and check for 5v at the ports. Don't know why it didn't cross my mind b4.

    Wired it up w/ a relay using a relay cigarette lighter female socket and a griffin usb car charger adapter. unplugged everything w/ only the power connected, tested the hub outputs and they read 5v.
