AmazonBasics USB 3.1 Hub
The USB hub has been in continuous operation for four months (on the power supply, not unplugged).
Its case is warm, but not alarmingly warm.
Normal for a plastic case.
An aluminum case would stay cool, as it could easily dissipate the heat caused by the chips.
According to some customer reviews, the hub only lasted three months and then it was defective.
Same here, but only about one month longer.
