2.5A? Lolwut! 10/6/2015 8:24:07 PM

Pros: USB data transfer works as advertised. Still functions after 5 years.

Cons: Only outputs ~1.6A. I bought this because of the claimed 2.5A output. It has a dedicated AC power adapter, so you'd think it could do it. However, when tested, it only got to 1.6A before hitting 4.75V and devices begin to limit charging. Voltage sag was quite linear. No load voltage is 5.18V.

Overall Review: This is an old and out of production product, so this review isn't going to help anybody on a purchase, but if you have one of these and wonder why charging seems slow, it's because it is. Oh well.

Pros: This hub is small and works okay with one USB device. It's cheap, but not worth it.

Cons: When I plug more than one USB flash drive into the hub, both run continuously and my computer cannot recognize them. Also, the connection is loose so if I accidentally bump or jiggle them, they are disconnected and reconnected. The hub is so light that I need to use poster tac to stick it to the desk.
