Usb switch with power supply
« on: 08:32 PM - 05/30/16 »
Anyone know of a good usb switch that has its own power supply because I want to use my light up keyboard but its using to much power and crashing the xim4, I checked the compatibility list and saw this ((H): High power draw. You may need a USB hub with its own power adapter between XIM4 and this device.) So if anyone knows of a good usb switch that meets that requirement I would appreciate it :D

By the way, you want a USB hub, not a switch.

A switch "switches" controls between devices, like swapping m/kb between PC and Xim4.
