Power-only USB?

I have half a dozen USB 5V2A devices that need power a bit away from the main outlet. For powering those, should I just find a powered USB hub? Or is there a better option?

What about a simple multi-port USB charger? I’m partial to the Satechi brand myself.


Y’know, I completely spaced that if all I need is the cheap crappy USB (not anything exotic) I should be able to put my hands on a charger with its own power cord.

Yikes. Definitely not firing on all cylinders today. :slight_smile: Thanks!


I’ve found a device like this incredibly useful:

I’m sure there are similar ones for USB-C, etc., but I just use adapters for the one or two I need periodically.
