So I ordered one of the little 4 into 1 USB hubs others here are using inside their slates, but I got to wondering what kind of USB board was in the laptop base I bought my daughter a while back.It has a male USB plug to plug into the laptop, three USB powered fans, and a 4-port hub in the back. There is an on-off switch for the fans, and a 5v DC in plug that can power the fans and port separately. The cool thing is though, that I only paid like US $8 for it and got all this neat stuff. The card is small enough that with the ports and plugs removed and replaced with wires, it should easily fit inside the case somewhere. On top of that, the fan system still works fine with an external power supply, or the power from the USB cable wired directly to it. Or, you know, I can tear it all appart for parts. Now, where'd I put that solder station?
