- June 28th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0More ports needed pleaseI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI got 2 of these when I purchased 2x of the latest passenger train (connected back to back). I removed the hub and motor at the rear and used it in my Emerald Night. I tested with bt remote and phone app .... 2x motors (one reversed), lights and colour sensor all work perfect. However, I have the passenger loco running with a motor in port A and the lights in port B, but I have nowhere to plug in the sensor ? We need 4 ports per hub or y split-er, so we could do .... 1x motor 2x light 1x sensor (my passenger train) 2x motor 1x light 1x sensor (my emerald night) 2x motor 2x light We also need long and short extension cables please Lego !

- February 18th, 2021Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Really good except of the batteriesI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfFirst the good. You can make programs for your builds and because of this 2 trains can run at once. Also if you want you can run this with your phone. these are both awesome features. The bad. Batteries will die on you fast. even if you have good batteries they will not last long. The batteries are also a lot of work to change. Like a lot of comments are saying, this should be a USB-C charged item, and I think that would probably increase playtime too. I know I answered "Target" for where I got this Item. I want to clarify. I have 2 from both train sets. I got the passenger train at Target and the Cargo train at the Lego store. Both power up hubs in those sets seem to act similar, but the Cargo Train does seem to do better.Play Experience4.0Value for Money2.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Hub
- June 1st, 2020Average rating2out of 5 stars2.0Missed opportunityPurchased for: SonRediscovering Lego 38 years after receiving my very own first Lego set must be the best thing about parenting. So many new builds to explore! I surprised my 7-year old son with the Lego City Train set that comes with this hub and was surprised hub and remote take 10 (!) AAA batteries together. Judging by the other reviews these may go in a day. Would it be a good idea to use rechargeable lithium batteries that can be charged using a USB cable (like a phone)?Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money2.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?25Hub
- July 6th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0Simply Not Worth the PriceThomas99 |Purchased for: SelfI give lots of credit to LEGO for releasing a new line of power function systems, but for the price it simply is not worth it. I build custom LEGO trains/models and typically use the normal LEGO Power Functions for my builds. They work great! These however I have not been overly impressed with. For me to power my new LEGO 10277 it would cost in USD $112.97 which is outrageous. That is more than what the set costs to begin with. With the previous line-up of Power Functions I could power the set for USD $54.96. Even though there is not room to fit the IR receiver, I will be willing to make it work for the price difference. Overall, I love the ability to use the new line-up without a IR Receiver taking up space, but it simply is not worth the price. If LEGO retires the current line of "Power Functions," I more than likely will not be buying the new "Powered-Up" systems in the future and will turn to alternative options unless the price drops significantly. Happy Building!!Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money1.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?15Hub
