I ordered and received the TAPTES usb hub pro on Amazon at the beginning of August. I received this email directly from TAPTES a week later. I haven’t seen anyone else post this.
...powered by what?
The ports themselves (the USB-A ones anyway) can't give you more than about 2.5a each if doing nothing but giving power.
Navaks gen1 intelligent splitter can offer you 2.1a of that, or ~10 watts, of charging power on one of its ports with the other available for data and ~.4a to power the data device plugged in there- all plugged into a single USB-A port in the car and taking up very little room.
If you want/need faster than that you'll need to plug into the 12v in the center console (or wire something yourself into a 12v line) and which point there's already tons of stuff that'll give you all the fast charging ports you want and you can use the front USB ports just for data.
is there any concern sharing the usb ports with 2 USB gamepads on the side with the USB drive for sentry? Does teslacam/sentry mode become less reliable when more things are being shared on the same USB port?
I fitted the USB-A version of the Taptes USB Hub Pro - data and power on all plugs.Have a
Works with my wireless charger and runs my game controller and sentry USB stick without issues.
Seems that 2020.40.3 screwed up the USB somehow, keeps alerting about the dash cam usb drive not being 4mb or faster. Its been working for over a year without issues. Hoping 40.4 fixes that.
Yep same here now, 40.4 seems to have fixed the USB and bluetooth issues of 40.3.I went from 2020.36.16 to 40.4 without any errors using my Taptes Hub Pro and a WD Purple Endurance 256gb micro sd card
Ive been getting USB malfunction errors on the Taptes Hub pro so I replaced it with the old taptes hub which seems incredible unreliable (it would just lose USB connection on the slightest touch). Anyone else having issues with the hubs on the latest updates or is my USB port just going bad - or maybe the hub is bad?
Plugging in directly with a cable or the drive directly seems to work fine
My one gripe with the hub is that it's really hard to put into place. In my early 2018 Model 3, the fit is very tight. Maybe it's better with more recent cars. It took a lot more force than it should have to push it down into the recesses of console. When I went to insert it the first time, the alignment must not have been perfect, because when I plugged it in, I heard a metallic scraping sound and it wouldn't fully insert. After removing it, I saw that the metallic lip of one of the car's USB ports was bent and it would not accept any USB-A plug. Thankfully, I was able to straighten it out with needle-nose pliers and got the hub in place. That probably would have been an expensive service appointment.
