This question already has an answer here:
For connecting external hard drive I want to use an active USB hub.
I found some USB hubs which seem also to power the upstream ports.
While this is under normal circumstances very bad I was wondering if this is actually a nice feature for powering also the Raspberry Pi device just via the Type A connector where I connected the USB hub.
Is this possible? Or can I power the Raspberry Pi only via the micro USB port?
