I only have one usb port on my new Acer Aspire 515-43 laptop. I need a short USB pass thru for connecting USB mouse, USB smartphone tether to laptop and a memory stick. Can someone direct me to a link for such? USA. Need ASAP (not long shipping time). I assume all three are data ? Nothing fancier if they make such.

Thanks. From reviews I've read of both, some said it won't transfer their data from their Iphone to their laptop (I own Iphone 7). I can do without any power to charge things, so I wonder if just a simple stubby data only (two) passthru would get past the problem he had. I guess I'll have to try those you mentioned and see.

P.S. He said his Iphone wouldn't sync. I assume he means it prevents the Iphone tether from working at all with the laptop. (phone works fine by itself on the laptops USB port. Any thoughts welcomed.

I just ordered the two you mentioned from Amazon with one day shipping. We'll see.

Thanks much. BTW, have you seen just a simple stubby USB passthru for data only?
I wonder if that might work too.

I have not used such a product ("stubby"). Do you have a link to what you are inquiring about?
I mispoke in that I don't need to use my iphone to tether to the laptop as I have a wireless JetPAck hotspot device. So, I just need to get a wireless mouse and maybe a memory stick workig off the usb port at the same time. I'm sure one of those you mentioned which arrive tomorrow will fit the bill.
