I have a Raspberry SC15184 Pi 4 server and I'm looking to power 3 USB peripherals each with a 3-6W power requirement (which should be 0.6-1.2A given pi-4 operates at ~5V).
This is above the 1.2A restriction for pi-4 so I would need a powered USB hub. However, I stumbled upon this article -- about poorly made powered USB hub could have backfeed that could cause pi-4 to be stuck on reboot. I'm trying to make the pi-4 into a server so this is obviously a big issue.
Unfortunately, the recommended USB hub in the article above may not be able to handle the power requirements of my USB peripherals (3 x 3-6W each, ~18W max). Does anyone have a good recommendation of powered USB hub for my case? Or know where I can look? This backfeed issue seems to be never advertised and only discussed on raspberry pi forums.
