Hello,

I want to add a powered USB hub for my Pi, and power it with the hub. I was thinking of this hub.
Do I have to add a USB > Micro USB cable to power it?

I suppose it isn't "back powering" then?

It is not possible to power it only by connecting it to the USB port right?

Use its micro USB connector for supplying it. Otherwise, you bypass internal protection circuit.
