I am currently working on a robot using an RPI, but I need to connect it to several USB Devices, whilst being completely portable, so not connected to a power plug. Since the devices can take up a bit of the power, I need the hub to be powered. I've searched alot on the internet for a battery powered USB hub, but I can't seem to find one. Has anyone got a good idea for where to get one?

Have you concitered using a power hub and making a battery pack for it?
I'm Wondering how long you wish to run the devices and what are they and wight kind of current they draw.
I think it would be possible to make the battery pack you need Must Remember Radio Shack is a good parts depot for components that you will need.
