    Fair but expensive replacement to the PF battery
    | 45-54
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    I got this along with the new train motor (88011) to replace my Holiday and Harry Potter train's setup. So far I'm happy with the setup. On the plus side, the receiver is already built in so it gets rid of the IR receiver for a cleaner look, and remote in favor of the Powered Up phone app. Does not require line of sight to control but you will need a compatible device (phone, tablet,or the new Lego bluetooth remote) which needs to be on all the time to control. It has 2 ports but only port "A" can be used for the motor by the "train" app (port "B" can be controlled using the "Batman" app but can be weird -- download or review the Powered Up app to better understand what these mean). I use the "B" port with the color/distance sensor (88007) to experiment on some coding controls. Controls are responsive so far, but the app in its initial development stage is too basic. The app can control up to 4 of these hubs. On the minus side, this hub is limited in use to creations that don't use too much controls (like trains). You cannot daisy chain components like how the old motors and lights did -- you cannot control 2 motors simultaneously on a single channel. This "Powered Up" (PU) technology is not compatible with the older "Power Function" (PF) technology. Also, the ports don't have clips and components will easily slip out of this hub when pulled. Battery life seems to be shorter given that it also powers the Bluetooth radio receiver. A big bummer for me though, with the old one (PF) you can leave the train running when you turn off/toss away the remote, but with PU the train stops when the app turns off or moves away from range, so you can't just leave your train running in the background when you step away. This hub is more for the tech oriented kids and adults, but may not appeal to younger kids looking to have a simple motorized out-of-the-box fun with their builds. However, I do like how this reduces the parts needed to control my trains. This seems to have firmware capability so current limitations *may* be addressed in the future with firmware updates.

    More ports needed please
    | 35-44
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    I 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 !

    Yet another incompatible system
    | 45-54
    Purchased for: Self
    We have gone for the 9V system, to the power functions system, with a side detour to the mindstorm systems, and now to the power-up system. And largely, these systems do not work together. I dislike the power up system for several reasons. There are no extension cables, you cannot build large models with it. The connectors are completely unique to LEGO, you cannot make your own cables or buy them from third parties. There are no rechargeable battery pack meaning you may have to take a model apart to replace the batteries. These elements existed under the power function system, but not under this new system. And this new system really does not do anything that the power functions system could not have done. The Bluetooth controller is cool, it is fun to be able to control your models with a mobile device, but this could have easily been added to the power functions system without breaking compatibility (3rd parties have been offering Bluetooth controller for power functions for a while.) Bottom line: different, incompatible, more expensive, fewer accessories, less flexibility... I do not see much here to like.

    Hi there, thanks for your feedback. While LEGO play will always be rooted in the brick, it's important to us that we embrace new technologies so today's children can continue to learn and enjoy the latest play experiences. Powered UP offers several advantages not possible with the old Power Functions system, including smartphone and tablet based control, integration of the "battery box" and "receiver" into a single unit, and much greater proximity via bluetooth. While rechargeable battery packs and extension cables aren't available for powered UP just yet, you never know what our designers will come up with next as we continue to expand platform!

    Only supports one motor at a time!
    Purchased for: Son
    Bought two 88008 to connect to this, but when I do, it refuses to connect to either the remote or the bluetooth app on the phone. As soon as I disconnect one of the motors it reconnects to the remote and/or bluetooth app. Way to go Lego, and no warning about this, so now I'm stuck with a motor that I can neither use nor return since it's no longer is "unpacked".

    Thanks for your review! I'm sorry to hear you've experienced trouble connecting your Powered Up Motors to the hub, but we're always here to lend a helping hand. With multiple ports to support extra motors, you can bring your creations to life using two motors by selecting multiple coding blocks to be available in the programming area Powered UP app. Get access by tapping the "Blocks Available" option when you open a new project in the app. This should allow your hub to recognize multiple ports will be used — just ensure your hub has fresh batteries before giving this another try. If that doesn't help your motors connect and stay engaged with the app, give us a shout at LEGO.build/Service for more support.
