Zero4U 4 port USB hub for Pi Zero

Shawn from UUGear sent me one of their new Zero4U 4-port USB hubs for the Pi Zero to review.

It works well, looks nice and is extremely well priced. This is a video review…

Where Can I Buy One?

From the UUGear website for around £6/$8.50/€7.50

  1. A nice product indeed!

  2. Great price indeed – makes me doubly glad I didn’t back https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/diableco/usb-shoe-rpi-zero-hub-without-wires-and-no-solder/description which even at the time I thought was overpriced.

  3. Can you use the Zero’s USB port while this hub is tapped into it? Seems like you shouldn’t be able to.

    • I think not because it would be competing with the hub chip. It would be like trying to use a Y-cable to plug two things into one port

  4. What’s the LiPo port for? What about the micro/mini(can’t really see what it is) USB? Can power be plugged into the hub and then the hub power the PI?

    • It’s not a lipo port, although those connectors are used on a lot of lipos. It’s a power port for 5V in, which can be used to power the Pi Zero as well or to power the hub if used “off-pi”. The mini-USB port is a downstream port enabling you to connect it to any USB port and use the hub “off-pi” or even with any other computer.

      • Oh, ok, thank you. So a LiPo could probably be used if it goes thru an Adafruit powerboost1000c first :)..(depending on what all is connected to the hub and if the 1000c can provide enough power for all of it)..then I guess one could make the choice regarding wiring directly to the 5v port or thru USB. Direct wiring would keep the entire package smaller though.

  5. Can you use it with the mouse, keyboard, Bluetooth dongle and USB camera in the same time all together?
