    So how much is one of those? Approx.

    I hate sites which don't list prices.

    As an update, these may be a cheaper option:



    Trust make them, and are £16 for a 7 port jobbie. A few of these should perform OK. Certainly cheaper than £299 for 32 ports, and you can spread these out a bot more. Imagine having 32 USB devices crowded together all charging at the same time!!
    If Lapsafe are looking at this how about a decent custom USB charging station? For less than £300 please. It must be portable and lockable too.

    Hiya,

    We bought five 7-port USB hubs to charge our Flip Cams. Unfortunately- and this was very annoying- they failed to charge all the devices at the same time. I just don't think there is enough power to handle so many multimedia devices. Some of them started getting hot too probably due to a lack of sufficient power.

    I'm not particularly savvy in electronics but this is was I deduced from this.

    Anyone have any other ideas??

    D-Link do a Powered usb hub for about £17.99 if you wanted several I'm sure you get better pricing.
