I am after a usb hub that can charge mobiles etc. without it been having to be plugged into the computer. Or a way to fool the hub to think it is pluged into a computer.

Thank you for the reply.

The belkin does not say if i can use it without a computer. which is the most important part. as i dont have the computer switched on. which with usb hubs you have to have the computer switched on for it to charge products.

thank you again

I would imagine it is possible to find a device to do that

Might have to do some more research

Again the same reply as before it could but it is a 50/50 chance it will though depends on the device as well read below it will tell you more

Do AC-powered USB hubs provide power when the computer isn't turned on?
