This is a video I made of me using a P3 Kill A Watt power meter to determine how many watts of power 1 – 9 USB Block Eurptors in a brand new Anker 9+1 port USB hub.

    USB HUB 19 Port USB Hub with Integral power supply and Steel/Aluminum case

    This is a 19 port hub With an integral power supply capable of 
    reliably supplying MORE that 500mA per port without overheating or becoming a fire hazard. 
    16 Front facing Standard A USB ports 3 Side facing Standard A 1 Master hub connection 
    Standard B for connection to Computing Equipment or other hubs Fully fused internally via multiple poly-fuse resettable fuses both on each individual port and on the main power feed to the Ports.
    Unlike may of the cheaper USB ports that only implement links at 1.0 12mb/s speeds 
    (but state they are 'compatible' with USB 2.0) 
    this is a professional FULL 480 Mb/s port that complies and implements the full 2.0 USB standard,
    it may also be used to connect to generic USB 1.0 equipment.

  2. If power cost is not an issue then the 4 graphics cards. IF power cost is an issue then the 3 USB block erupters. This is all encompassing the fact that you would cash out your BTC for money at some point.

  3. Honestly the more USB block erupters the better. This 9 block eruptor set out preformed my rig. It was mining at 1.4 G/hashes per sec with two HD 7970's. I did that over two months and $800 later in electricity and cooling. I get 1 BTC. The USB block eurpters are better out of the two but even having 9 block erupters isnt going to get you very far. The mining difficulty is getting harder. I think now, 9 of them would take you 3 months to get one bitcoin if it werent for the difficulty.

  4. That all depends on how much you pay for a the block erupters. right now you buy them for $20-30 each. plus a RasPi you pay $30-$35 you are already at about $90 at the cheapest. You would need to run them at 3 months straight. Pray that the difficulty doesnt raise and hope that the value of bitcoin goes up. thats at the current value of $125/BTC.

  5. If i hooked up 3 of these to get 1Gh/s to a raspberry pi (small computer that only uses around 5 watts) and left it running 24/7 the price for electric would be made back very fast right?
