Just got a new MacBook Pro. I realized that it only had 2 usb 3 ports but figured I would just get a splitter hub. However I am finding most of the USB hubs for 3.0 need to connect to external power.  Am I missing somethign?  plugging lots of things into the wall is not what I prefer -- I have some Kensington 2.0 splitters for my pc that work fine. Are there other hub/splitters recommended for Mac?
