    Only one problem that I can see with it: no USB out port on it too so you can't daisy chain another USB device to it. I just recently got a bunch of USB-driven stuff for cheap from somebody, and even though I'm lucky and have four USB ports total on my comp (two in the back with an additional two in the front) I'd like it better if they were equipped with USB outs so I could daisy chain 'em together and run them all off of one port instead.

    Powered hubs are cheap.

    You will run out of power. Especially on older boards, especially running usb instead of usb2. Without dedicated power, 2 medium draw devices can stall a usb port.
    If you want to make a cheap beverage cooler for the truck, just get some pelti plates.

    The jet engine beer cooler guy is in NZ. Home to countless masters of invention! :bow:

    I like the USB thing too.

    Too much thought and effort into having a cold one can ruin a good thing. If you’re first one gets hot before you get to the bottom of it you’re just not drinking fast enough. :p:
