    If you're looking for more specific dc info you should check out the library of congress in Washington District of Columbia. It could provide lots of engineering information and specific specs. Also, the downtown dc public library in Washington District of Columbia.

    Good luck,

    Umm... Is Allen a computer?
    So I am looking for a USB hub for the dash. PC is powered by an M2-ATX in the trunk. I would rather not run 4 USB cables the length of the car. Maybe USB and a 5v power cable off the M2 ATX run to the dash to a 5v powered hub? Need to connect USB at the dashboard- Liilput, USB stick, OBDII, and keyboard. All others I can run from the trunk. Is it better to run 3 cables, or get the hub?
    I have a Chinese hub (cheap) 5v from ebay and can post result in the car soon.

    That hub is awesome, but is it worth that price tag for a car application? You can just run the power connector for any powered hub to the 5v output of your DC-DC power supply with no issues.

    I got it and it didn't power my external hard drive lol, I had to mod it by shortening 2 rectifiers and adding a heat sink to the regulators. Now it can power anything hehe
