I didn't need to, it  was only USD$12 for shipping, cheaper than the minimum NZD$17 youshop

You were talking about the hubs weren't you? We are talking about the charger only. Not that there are any prizes or medals on offer.

Yeah! Hubs don't count!




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Found it, this little guy looks like it takes the crown from the anker (if you need more ports that is)....

I ordered mine on April 12 so well after your hub recommendation. However I didn't recommend until August and then only on Twitter....

A true geek.

Wish I had known yesterday as this popped up on dx so I ordered it last night.

scottjpalmer: Mr Biddle is dead right, the Anker 5 port USB chargers we got while in the USA last month are awesome!



Charging and running all of the things!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00GTGETFG/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1409974504&sr=8-1

As a side, the +port is a sweet gadget for Dell Venue 8 Pro users, allowing simultaneous charging and USB port use while also powering the USB device(s).


What's that gadget that your +port is connected into? Looks like a charging meter?
