USB POWER HUB to charge joystick while playing
« on: 12:49 PM - 07/09/15 »
Hey guys, I want to be able to charge my PS4 joystick and sometimes my wireless headset while playing. I'm using a Homemade Gaming Lap Desk from http://xim4.com/community/index.php?topic=32196.0 so I want to have it all the stuff around. I was thinking on buyin a USB powered hub with switcher and usb power injector cable. This is the schematics:



So what you think? Will it work?

thanks guys!

Welcome to the community. Those Y-splitters will work just fine. In fact, you don't really need the hub. You could plug in the power-only USB directly into a free port on your PS4. Or directly into a USB AC power adapter.
