Trying to construct a battery powered usb hub. Will this work?? Answered
Let me start of by saying that I suck at electronics and to tell me to build something from scratch would completely miss the point of why I am asking this :P
What I want to do is use readymade components to combine into a portable usb hub.
I want it to be highly customizable and powerful enough to power several usb devices at once. Such as powering several usb speakers, recharging a phone and so on for extended periods of time.
And it has to be as energy efficient as possible without costing a gazillion bucks. If I was not at all worried about wasting power I would have solved it already :P
Here are the parts I have picked out.
1. 12V Rechargeable Li-on Battery 9800mAH
2. Hobbywing UBEC-8A
3. Powered 7-Port Usb hub
I hope someone can help me out with confirming that my setup would work. Or tell my exactly why it would not. I would greatly appreciate it :)
