I was given a task. For company event, we were gonna make some sort of “Charging Station”.
I bought this 10 port USB Hub (BH049)thinking that it’s ideal~ enough ports, and powered, etc etc. But ran into a slight problem..
in order to use it as charger, the USB standard plug B had to be plugged into a computer that is ON. BOOOO!!!!
after doing some research online, I picked up some screw drivers, and a soldering iron (USB POWERED!)
first, open up the hub and DESTROY the circuit trace for USB pin 2 and 3.
second, use the soldering iron and short the USB pin 2 and 3 together
repeat for all 10 ports, re-assemble them together!
TADAA~~ NERD! i had to use mine to take pic with. but it’ll charge 🙂
now. . . the 10 port hub will NOT work for hub. it will JUST become a charging station!
i will NOT be responsible if you try it and it destroys your device. i will NOT be responsible for you stupidly burning down your house. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! of course, it voids any warranty on the hub, DUH!
