    or theoretically provide the max power to any device that would normally suffer from extended usb lengths?
    I think 15 feet might be out of USB spec, but you could use a long USB cable to give data to the hub.

    Take the blue pill or the red pill? Tough decision... Acutally the blue wire does nothing.

    5 meters is the USB spec for max cable length.

    This is perfect for the Mimo screens that require a full 500ma and only run off usb.
    It means I have one wire going to my screen and that's it.
    Makes it easy to remove and simplifies cable management.

    It also allows me to install additional high power devices should I need to in the future.

    The problem is that most people think it should just be $50 straight out...

    Darn.. i was hoping for a 5v Out ... or perhaps a 12v wire which goes hot when the usb device goes hot.

    I really like this hub. The idea of putting it all together in one package was great, and from hearing how well it works from the testers seems like a great addition to the CarPC community. Unfortunately i have already made up my own usb ports with the opus 15watt and a 7 port hub. The issue here is that with 7 ports and only 3 amps of output u cant get the full 500mA from each port if you actually needed it.

    I'd like to see this same hub made in a 7 or 8 port version with all the same functions. That to me would be worth the $85

    It seems most DC-DC converters max out at about 3A. If you think about it though, that's 6 fully powered ports (which you probably wont fill) and then 1 left over. 3A for 7 ports is a lot. Unless you're running a soundcard and then a USB screen and a couple USB-powered fridges... you should be fine with a 7 port.

    That's what I tell myself anyway, I just ordered a supply, I secretly want to hope it's enough
