USB what?

 

If you are referring to hubs...IMO, a powered hub is preferable to a passive one...and an ON/OFF switch would also be desireable.

 

More Info.

Hi,

I doubt that a laptop would have dedicated charger ports, and i have heard stories of people frying their laptop mainboard by using their laptop as a charging hub. Please don't. Use a wall plug. But if you must, charger ports are labeled with a lightning symbol.
