We've just bought 32 Mino Flips with re-chargeable battery packs for them. You charge them via the usb ports on a computer but i wondered if anybody knew of a reputable usb hub, preferably no less than 7 ports, that we could use to charge them without the need for a pc?
There's gotta be something...
They have power adaptors so you could make like a small laptop trolley or rack fixed to wall somewhere.
I was hoping you'd say that! :D
Thanks for the advice
Thats the US site the UK one doesn't have the power adapters :(
We had teh same problem, just used a dlink hub and plugged one end into the pc not ideal but it works
I have the same problem here...all the USB hubs I have seen so far have the ports the wrong way round to allow multiple Flip units to be plugged in.
My desk looked awesome when i charged 12 at once with extension leads was a spider!
What do you mean the wrong way round?

Just ressurecting this thread.
I bought 5 USB hubs for our 30 cams. All Sweex 7-port hubs with power adapters. I plug all the cams in, plug the hubs in and the battery icon appears on the Flips but no charging symbol. If I plug the hub into a pc the charging symbol kicks in and they start charging for a few seconds and then stop and say 'Check Battery Pack- charging paused'.
Any more helpers on what I can do??
Did you ever get anywhere with this? Is anyone using a powered USB hub to charge Flips?
I have an HP wall charger that was for my HP Phone and the top of it just has a usb a socket on it would something like that work?
Those things are awesome.
