    I've never had a problem with any decent quality USB hub, although I've not used them with USB3 or USB-C so depends on the hardware. I have a couple of these and they're rock solid DUB-H7 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub | D-Link UK (dlink.com) with all my audio and other USB gear that works with USB2, which is pretty much all of it.

    If you are also referring to USB-C then I will quote Matthew_NI for you :

    Whilst USB-C is perfectly capable of sending data and power down a single cable, some USB-C hubs are not. The user must make sure the outlet on the hub supports both data and power (they are usually labelled).

    And even then the right cables are needed for USB in any case !

    USB-C has proven to be a rather complex standard, not only can USB-C and USB-C like plugs now also be USB4 but also they can be Thunderbolt when with a Thunderbolt marking !

    Links has been included in the above for guides and text. But maybe you can find more and better yourself !

    EDIT : one faulty link repaired

    usb "docs"? ...it doesn't make any sense.

    docs = documents, so probably there is a mistake here.

    can you please edit, or explain what do you mean?

    thank you
