Power multiple cameras at once with a splitter

Is there a usb splitter available? Or a usb hub thats safe enough to use for multiple cameras at especially for wiring cameras out doors. Im trying to fine a safe way to have all my cameras be powered outdoors with out having wires exposed or plugged outside where someone can easily unplug them.

How many cameras are you planning on powering? The main reason I ask is that the wiring on most USB power cables simply can’t handle the current from too many cameras.

A far better approach is to feed a higher voltage (typically 12 or 24 volts) via something like 18 AWG zip cord and use that to feed 5 volt regulators for each camera.

The OG Bundle comes with a 2 cam USB splitter and a more powerful 1.5 Amp power adapter.

Probably about 6 for the outside of my house.

Ill have too look onto getting one.

Take a look at these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087RHWTJW?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Supply 12 volts and each camera plugs into it’s own USB outlet. Obviously needs to be weather protected.
