Unfortunately, it really depends on the specifics of the implementation of both the hub and device. Now, the vast majority of simple hubs don't really implement any sort of power control. They'll just connect the USB power lines directly to either their host or an external (regulated) power supply, which means you'd effectively be sharing the capacity of ...

You can use it to recharge your gadgets, but an old USB1 hub will only output max 500mA per port (according to the specs) and that means very long charging times. Additionally, newer devices won't even charge when connected to such low power connectors. But you may give it a try.

It depends on the performance of the USB device, the USB subsystem, the storage system and the computer you're connecting the USB device to. Theoretically USB 2.0 has a bandwidth of 480 Mbit/s, which is about 57 MiB/s. However, due to encoding overhead and inefficiencies in the protocol this speed is not obtainable and ideal conditions would probably yield ...

I used a second phone (an old HTC one V) as a second 'load'. I only measured one device, with the HTC one V just to see what happens. I've put what the reading ...

Is xubuntu booting and running from this external drive, or is this just an add-on drive? If the former, then yes provided you have USB3 port you will get a substantial improvement in speed by using a USB3-based external drive and especially if this drive is SSD. It will still be slower than an internal drive.

A 3.5" drive requires both 5v and 12v, wheras 2.5" drives only need 5v. USB only supplies 5v. USB adapters/enclosures for 3.5" drives have a separate 12v input in addition to the 5v, which can be supllied by the USB bus or by the power supply, in which case the PSU is supplying both voltages.

Another possibility is that you have a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent/Inexpensive Disks) and Windows 10 has written over the Windows 7 version of the ...
