Either of these outputs, rated at 500mA, is capable of supplying only
1/10 the current the HUB needs. Do not use it!!! The voltage disparity
is small beer in the worry scales in comparison...

5 Amps = 5000mA

When a house is getting long in the tooth, less functional and less
attractive, it gets a renovation.

When a computer system is slow to respond, broken down or incapable, it
is overhauled.

When a car has lost its gloss but brings enough memories of good times
to overcome the desire for a newer model, it is restored.

Funny thing, political correctness.

Women get a makeover.
