    Welcome to Tech Support Guy forums, please be patient for responses as this is not live chat.

    You can pretty much use any USB hub, if your computer has USB 3.0 ports then I'd make sure to get a USB 3.0 hub to match, good to get one for a bit of future proofing anyways even if you only have USB 2.0 ports. If you computer has a USB 3.1 C port then you can also get a USB 3.1 hub with a USB C ports.

    Examples or standard USB 3.0 hubs: https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100161333 600079080&IsNodeId=1

    I'll add one comment: buy a powered USB hub.
    Aside from the USB plug, it will have a wall wart and a power connector.
