The data ports and charging ports are separate and dedicated to their intended functions — you can use them both simultaneously without one affecting the other.

Con External power source required
This USB hub can only be externally powered by the included 12V / 5A AC power adapter. This can make it less than ideal for portable usage, since you need to have access to a wall plug to power it.
Con Ports are limited to their intended function
The charging ports do not support data transfer, and the USB 3.0 ports do not support charging.
