I ended up with some other generic usb3 hub, mainly since my new mainboard has 2 USB3 ports on the back, and I wanted something on my desktop to not have to climb down under my desk and find the plug in the dark... thus it required a hub with at least 0.75m of cable, and many fell short.

I ended up with a ugreen generic one with 3 ports on the front and one on top, it also has a plug for an external power supply, but I did not get it with the one I ordered, nor do I use it for charging any devices, it's more for my USB memory sticks and external hard drives. So far it's been fine, but I haven't exactly done any speed tests with/without it.

Anker do a 7 port one with a 1m cable that also has an external power supply if needed, but they are too expensive at $50

Years ago I needed a 4 port hub so I went to the store to buy one.  They ended up being $40-50 each, and I was prepared to pay half that at most.  So, I came home, went on eBay and bought two 7 port hubs for less than $10, including shipping.  One had disappeared over the years, but the other is still going strong.

and the price is what put me off...

I paid less than half the similar anker model.

there seems to be special on Anker products, on all Amazon sites, if interested.

I ordered some car chargers

I have a cable set from Costco it is 27.00 comes with two 6' heavy duty cables, double car plug and double house plug. They charge fast and charge iPads no problem. I got mine for free they came with my iPhone 7. My couch has phone plugs they work well with them as well.  https://www.costco.com/Ub...2BvrbsGWmRs2kZcv0uhkw4PgY

I think Alcohol, Tabacco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.
