What I want, should be simple.
I need a USB hub with the following properties:
- USB C upstream (so it has a USB C connector going to the PC)
- 7 USB A ports downstream
- USB 3.0 or better
- ONLY BUS powered.
The USB C connector can by itself - draw 3A without the need for the power delivery complications that laptops and tablets use to pull higher volts and amps.
I can find all but the last bit. Or should I say the products I find don’t explicitly state they will draw the full 3A. I do not want another cable for power primarily for aesthetics but just to keep the inevitable cabling nightmare to a minimum.
Everything I find that at least implies it is using at least 3A has ports other than USB A that I do not want.
Once again, it looks as if I am forced to compromise.
