Sounds easy, right?


In an attempt to do away with this dreaded message:

USB low power notice from Mac OS

I am looking for a USB hub for my Macbook Pro that meets the following requirements:

  • Externally powered on all ports (the hub has its own power jack)
  • USB3 support at full speed
  • More than 4 ports
  • Good reviews (>= 4 stars)

I am specifically not looking for, and am not interested in:

  • "Charging" hubs meaning:

    • Hubs that only supply power on a subset of the available ports,
    • Or hubs that only supply power without connection to the PC
  • "House brand" hubs such as AmazonBasics, Gigatech, etc. Too many bad experiences there.

Price is no object.

If a good USB Hub with more than 4 ports is what you are looking for then you should check out Anker USB Hubs like this one


It's a 7 port Aluminum hub, USB 3.0, with a 5V 3.0A power adapter.

As for reviews....

Their site:

From Amazon:

They make hubs that go from 4 ports to 14 ports so there is a lot of choice. What what I really like about their products is that they stand behind them. I had an issue with a 2 port hub over a year after I bought it and they refunded my full purchase price. Their customer service has been fantastic that I can recommend them and their products without hesitation.

    I have a few Anker products, though not this particular one. I've never had an issue with any of them.
