Best USB Hub for use with X360

Hi, i have only had my xbox for a few months and instead of buying the controller chargers i bought some usb batteries, as they were cheaper.
However, they dont fit into the slot in my xbox, or my ps3. So I need to buy a USB Hub.

Which would be the best one for this purpose? preferably quite cheap.

Thanks in advance

Pretty much any USB Hub will work, so the cheapest one you can find will probably do you fine. Just remember to look at data transfer rates of the cable - you might find one for dirt cheap, but it might be because it's wicked slow.

Also, I've read online that USB Hubs that have their own power supply (in other words, have their own AC power cable to plug into the wall) are more efficient than purely USB powered hubs; without the dedicated power cable, you're stealing power from your 360 (I shouldn't need to tell you that this isn't a good thing).

I use a Kensington PocketHUB for my 360 cuz I have loads of USB peripherals and it only cost me about 5 from the Dell website
