    using a samsung tab s2 9.7 inch android tablet from 2016 with a bluetooth keyboard and a bluetooth mouse. i was curious about something. if i bought a usb 2 hub with 4 ports that also comes with a power adapter that has to be plugged in to a electric outlet, can i plug the tablet into the hub along with a full size usb keyboard and mouse and have it all work correctly?

    Usually, yes. As long as the power to the hub is being supplied externally.

    Unfortunately there's no sure way of knowing with non-1st-party accessories. In theory they should work (again, as long as they don't need to draw power FROM the tablet), but if the manufacturer (read: cheap) changed anything or used cheaper materials, fluctuations in impedance or protocol mismatches might hinder the hub unusable on your tablet.

    I HAVE used USB hubs on the Tab S2 before (when I had one) so I know it works, but that was with whatever hub I tried at the time (it was an unpowered one, too).
