Hi there

 

I am looking for a USB hub with 3 or 4 ports - (pretty easy to find...)
BUT - it needs a longish cable - like around 1-1.5 meters long

 

USB3 is preferable, but not a must.

 

Would like one that does not require power - the fewer cables, the better!

 

I have only been able to find one that might match - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/RSExplorer-2017-3-Port-USB-HUB-Splitter-with-MS-SD-M2-TF-Card-Audio-Cable-Multi/32829357859.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.FLP15a

and possible this (80cm cable): https://he.aliexpress.com/item/High-Speed-4-Port-USB-3-0-Hub-Smart-LED-Indicator-Cable-USB-Splitter-Adapter-Transfer/32810819395.html?spm=a2g16.search0104.3.225.MFjsFo&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_4_10152_10065_10151_10068_10344_10345_10342_10343_10340_10341_10541_10307_5670020_10060_10155_10154_10056_10055_10539_10537_10536_10059_10534_10533_100031_10103_10102_10142_10107_10172_10084_10562_10083_10561_5650020_5740017_10312_10313_10314_5660020_10550_10073_10551_10552_10553_10554_10557-10552,searchweb201603_1,ppcSwitch_5&btsid=b8463c19-66f5-4b99-bf12-9bdd8cb45d1f&algo_expid=fda37c3b-62f0-49c2-9758-0fbb63b2ffe6-29&algo_pvid=fda37c3b-62f0-49c2-9758-0fbb63b2ffe6

 

if anyone has something good to recommend i'd be most grateful!

 

Thanks!

Can you use the hub with the shorter cable then use a USB 3 extension cable?

I bought one of these for work, liked it so much I bought one for home.  The cord to connect to the computer is 3.3 feet long, long enough that my computer is located in an over head storage and the hub is on my desk.  The hub is also powered, giving me lots of options on what I can connect.  Not having power limits what you can connect.
