Usb Hub Surface Pro 3

Recommended Posts

miwa
Someone a recommondation which USB Hub is compatible with my Surface Pro 3. I have ordered this : http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00CYWBG50?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 

And it doesnt work with my external Drive AND my sony RX100 iv camera together. But this is exactly what I need to load the photos from my camera to the external drive without temporary store it on my surface harddrive. I have read somewhere that I cant do that because every unpowered usb hub is not strong enough for both devices (HD and Camera)..... Is this right, or does this work better: http://www.amazon.com/Bidul-Reader-Microsoft-Surface-S-USBHub4in1-3-0/dp/B00HWMP108/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1452087103&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=USB+Hub+3.0+und+Card+Reader+f%C3%BCr+Microsoft+Surface+Pro+3%2C+Pro+2%2C+Pro%2C+Surface+3+und+Surface+2.

 

Thanks for any advice

You need to identify the power requirements for your devices and then buy accordingly. I have a ten amp, sixty watt photos that I use. It also auto senses the devices and applies the correct amount of power.

You need to buy a hub with a power adapter. As ImTheTypeOfGuy states, you need to have an idea of the power requirements of the devices that are drawing power from the hub. I have had good luck with these:
