I am making a portable raspberry pi zero, and I need to have a USB sound card, wi-fi dongle/adapter, and one extra usb port (for keyboard, mouse, etc) all connected to the micro USB port on the Raspberry Pi Zero.
I could buy something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hot-4-in-1-Micro-USB-Hub-OTG-Cable-Extension-Adapter-for-Android-Samsung-Tablet-/231719134796?hash=item35f389664c:g:WaUAAOSwu4BV0o5l But it takes up a lot of space when your trying to jam a mini keyboard+trackpad, d-pad, buttons, battery, Pi, usb sound card, Teensy Board, HDMI cable, voltage step up board, etc all in a case a little bigger than a Nintendo DSi XL.
Would it be possible just to strip a micro USB cable and solder wires with these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/262461043470 connected in parallel and connect all of the USB devices to those? It would function pretty much the same as a regular USB hub, but without any circuitry.
Would this work like a USB hub? Thanks in advance! :)
