Charging an iPod through usb hub - 03/17/07 05:49 PM

Hey I'm building an iPod dock out of the cardboard box it shipped in, I've already got it talking to the computer:

Now I have two goals. The first is to put in some small speakers to get full dock functionality, the other is to put in a usb 2.0 hub, since I'm out of ports with the iPod and my tablet plugged in, and I might as well combine the dock and hub.

So does anyone know of a good small usb2 hub that I could charge an iPod from? And since this is for a portable dock it should get power from the computer, not an AC adapter. Any help would be appreciated!

Berklin makes a few mini 4 to 5 port USB 2.0 hubs that are powered from the USB host port.

I found one the other day in my local Tesco supermarket. I think the brand was Technika. Cheap too.
