The PiHUB extends the connectivity power of your Raspberry Pi with a clever and attractive design. It is a hub which not only increases the number of USB devices your Raspberry Pi connects to, but provides power to them as well.
It is fully USB 2.0 compliant but also backwards compatible with USB version 1.1 and provides up to 3A, which is sufficient to power four connected USB devices. You can even use on the PiHUB’s USB ports to power the Raspberry Pi itself.
How can I build projects by connecting to the PiHUB?
The small size of the PiHUB means it is well suited for portability and for use within many projects.
It has been designed with six connections - two on the leaf parts of the design and four USB ports on the larger Raspberry part of the design. The two connections on the leaf part of design include a DC power jack which accepts a standard DC plug, providing power to all of the USB connected devices. This 3A, barrel-jack, power plug is included with your PiHUB. The second connection on the leaf section is for data connection and a cable connects this port to a spare USB slot of the Raspberry Pi.
The high power USB ports can be used to power anything from hard disks to smart tablets, all while still connected to and controlled by the Raspberry Pi. The underside of the PiHUB reveals three of the USB ports are all labelled with a USB symbol and these are rated 0.5A each. The USB port with a Raspberry symbol is rated at 1.1A and is suited to powering your Raspberry Pi.

The PiHUB is compatible with all models of the Raspberry Pi that have a spare USB port.
