Our low cost USB hub is packaged with four USB type A ports, which is why we also offer type A to PC case adapter cables.
But for anyone happy to tinker, it’s quite simple to delete these ports and replace them with 9 pin headers - freeing up space and saving a few dollars!
I happened to have a couple of spare 10 pin straight and right angle connectors from Jaycar and just did some pin swapping to get a layout that half sits on the board and half out. A little bit of pin bending was required to fit the four holes on the board but they sit quite well. Short wires connect the free pin legs to the adjacent port holes.
The most tedious part is the desoldering but an automatic station helps with through hole parts like these and I used a bit of wick for the shield legs.
Alternatively, the shield legs could be quite easily cut and just two ports removed if you want to save a bit of time - or just directly solder all legs of the pin headers to the port legs and obviate the need for any desoldering.
