Hi all,

I want to use a Galaxy tablet with a barcode scanner attached. Scanner worked fine in the first test. Will a usb powered hub keep the tablet charged while I use the scanner? Looking at equipment it seems like it will.

You have to test this.

So, you are saying I should buy the equipment, hook it up and find out if it works?

That's the only way to know.

USB powered hubs are fairly generic and while it should work, there will always be an exception. If I had to do this I'd try the various hubs we have at the office and if we had none then we'd order with Amazon Prime so we can return what didn't work.
