    cut AC transformer off USB Hub power to connect DC?

    How could I power a USB hub off DC PSU?

    What if I cut the AC transformer off the cable? Could I then just wire the hub straight to my 5V line off the molex?

    I don't want to put an inverter in my car and would probably need more power than an unpowered hub would provide...
