It looks similar to the 4 port one I bought from Ali Express, with 3 charge modes.

The one I bought does work. It doesn't charge at the maximum rate, but it does charge the tablet even under heavy usage unlike most other OTG hubs.

Would be nice to know if that cheap ebay one has the same modes as the 4 port one on aliexpress. Please update if you get it!

The other technique people used on other tablets is by using a Y USB cable, intended to deliver additional power to ext cd or other drives. Check out http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-3-Feet-Cable-External-Drive/dp/B0047AALS0
Good success with Toshiba Encore tablets from comments (and youtube vid), it provides 0.5A to tablet, enough for sustainment apparently

I have that one, it does appear to at least keep charge on the tablet when set to the 1st setting. It will only charge and OTG if connected to power 1st and then connected to the tablet after the tablet has booted.

Sorry for the bump but trying to avoid make one more thread.

After few months, what have people bought, preferably to the UK, that charges the tablet and still serves as a USB HUB?

Objective is to connect the tablet (keep charging), keyboard that uses microUSB+Adaptar and still have a free slot for a pendrive.
