I'm working on a project where there will be 3 USB devices and a Qi transmitter that are hooked to a USB hub board. I just need USB High-Speed, not 3.0+. The 3 USB devices would consume total of ~1A.
I wanted to know that although theoretically possible, is there any issue with powering this hub via a USB fast charger. The rationale behind it is that USB fast chargers are easily available now and provide the required 5V/2A.
If yes, is there any advantage of using USB Type-C rather than microUSB?
