"What makes a quality USB Hub to power external hardware? Based on my internet research it is:

A quality enclosure preferably made of metal for durability;
Quality parts that can stand up to frequent insertions and pull outs of USB plugs;
Powered by an external transformer that can provide the current (amps) required for the equipment you want to attach to each USB port (e.g., for 4 standard USB ports you could potentially need 4 X 0.5 amps = 2.0 amps);
Sufficient power to support current requirements for the quantity of ports that you plan to use simultaneously
A lifetime guarantee for the product.

Here is a link to one quality USB hub that can satisfy some of the requirements."
