Hi all, so I'm getting my Pi tomorrow and I just realized I'm most likely going to have trouble powering my K400 keyboard/trackpad and testing out a USB DAC, due to power limitations. I'd really rather not have the Pi taking up two sockets, so I thought I could just get a hub to power the Pi and peripherals.

I've seen a few suggestions on what hubs to buy to easily power the Pi, but they've all been brands that aren't available in the US. Could someone point me to some relatively cheap hubs on Amazon US or Newegg that are known to work and can also power the Pi out of the box (no soldering or taping things up)?
