Most Hotels average 2-4 power outlets per room. This tip allows you to charge your phones, GPS units, cameras, SmartWatches, WiFi Hotspots, tablets, etc while leaving the other AC outlets open for things that draw a bit more juice such as a Laptop.

Most devices, including the 2013 Nexus Tablet and Nexus 10 will charge from a USB hub (although slower than if using the power brick, which is not a huge deal when you are sleeping)

Many of these “active” hubs will only let you charge a total of 2A.Keith I Myers – 2013-10-16 10:41:33-0400Some powered go up to 2.1A per port, so it is important to read the package. Some models may vary. Most mobile phones will charge between 0.5 A and 1 A
