USB Hub Power Adapter
I bought a Dynex USB 2.0 4-Port Hub last week and have decided to add an external power supply to power the hub. The short and terse User Manual notes on the final page that a 5Volt / 2.5 Amp Power Adapter may be connected. I called their customer support number and talked to a lady, but her best advice was return to the store and ask there. My experience with this store over the years has been fat chance for this kind of request. Has anyone got a suggestion as to where I can purchase such a USB Power Adapter?

Radio Shack would be a good place to start although you might have to get one of their adjustable models. A Google search should also turn up something. Actually I just replaced my D-Link powered USB1 hub with a USB2 model. The old one is just sitting around and it has a 5V 2.4A adapter. If you want it so you can use the adapter just PM me and I'll send it to you.

Since the various hubs have different power connectors, the best advice is probably the Radio Shack suggestion. Their universal supplies have multiple connectors that you can use to adapt to the specific situation.

Thanks. I think Radio Shack might be a good place to look. I had done an extensive Google search prior to posting, but had gotten frustrated with the results.
