    I’m planning my ipac 2 console build and was wondering should i factor in a powered usb hub. I only planned to have a ipac controller and a pi powered by a power cable.

    Will a powered hub be a necessity?




    I run a self-build bartop arcade without a hub.

    This is plugged in my pi2:

    -Wlan Stick
    -USB Joystick (Xin Mo Controller)
    -Wireless Keyboard
    -VGA-HMI Adapter Usb Power Cable.

    In my opinion a hub is not necessary.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I’ve I’ve already looked at your build in the past it’s awesome. How did you find the XinMo. Debating saving some money getting that instead of the ipac2.



    I bought the Controller and Buttons in a set at ultracabs, a uk Company.–standard-joystick-set-109-p.asp

    <- They have a really good Service and the Prices are ok:)
