Can the Plugable 7-Port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Charging Hub (USB3-HUB7BC) charge devices while it is connected to computer via USB, or only when connected to power source via adapter and NOT connected to computer?
Thanks for asking!
Actually, it can do both. The compatibility is less when connected to the host (the hosted device has to support BC 1.2), but when unplugged this acts like a smart charger and will charge just about everything.
Take a look at the charging tables on the product page for more info, and pay special attention to the color coding mentioned:
