The best 10 port USB hub available?
One might ask what they would do with a 10 port USB hub, but the possibilities are nearly endless*.
Product Number: AK-68ANHUB-B10A
Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2dMDy8O
Length (USB and power ports included): 18.5cm
Short Product Description: [Upgraded Version] Anker USB 3.0 SuperSpeed 10-Port Hub Including a BC 1.2 Charging Port with 60W (12V / 5A) Power Adapter [VIA VL812-B2 Chipset and updated Firmware 9081] AH231
Tested Operating Systems: Windows 10 Anniversary Edition; Windows 8.1; Linux Fedora 23 (kernel 4.7.2-101.fc23.x86_64)
The provided power supply will work with 110V/60Hz or 240V/50Hz. The added flexibility of the power supply made it an easy choice for purchasing a high-end USB hub for use in Australia (or any country worldwide for that matter).
It will take a figure of 8 IEC-C7 cable as input.
The hub has functioned well under Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Fedora 23. My main concern was how the IOGear GUS434 would function in the middle, however it appears to have worked flawlessly. Switching between sources is handled well by both the Anker and IOGear.
The user manual states: When disconnected from a USB cable, or when the computer is in sleep mode or powered off:
- Data Ports will not charge.
- The 10th port delivers full speed charges of up to 2A to all USB-enabled devices.
*To be fair, the possibilities end at around 9 USB devices and one quick-charge port.
