Once you have connected the keyboard, mouse, hard drive, wireless dongle and one or two other bits, there remains much room on the two USB ports on the Raspberry Pi …
Pimoroni had already given us a superb 4 port USB hubto look raspbérien (not looking for is not in the dictionary!). But sometimes four ports are not enough.
PiHut just put on its website this 7 port hub tested and approved for Raspberry Pi as confirmed the many customers notice (assuming they are true).

A message from Mo Amine Daoudi on the facebook page of framboise314: “I seem to have already met this form of hub on the web before, the reviews were glowing for use on Pi This may actually be a new one. model with a more powerful power supply. In any case, we find such a USB hub that is cheaper than ebay on EUSBHUBS.
Or cheaper here (the color is not the same, whether it is exactly the same model)”
The photos on ebay show the back of the hub:
Following the loss of Fred on the hub (see comments below), I contacted PiHut who responded very quickly. They think that the first message was sent to Fred on Tweeter (TBC) which explains it passed unnoticed.
They recommend in case of trouble with their equipment to systematically through theircontact form online.
The hardware warranty is 1 year.
