- November 26th, 2020Average rating2out of 5 stars2.0Poor DesignLinzello |Purchased for: SelfMain problem is it requires you to unscrew two tiny screws and then wrestle with 6 tiny batteries. You might want to buy a new charger if yours charges 4 at a time. I fixed mine by replacing the batteries with a 9v li-ion battery with a micro-usb charging socket on the side. Then cut a small hole in the side of the battery box casing so you can directly charge it without unscrewing anything (see pictures).Play ExperienceAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?25Hub
- October 18th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0DisappointingPurchased for: SonSome design improvements necessary. Lego - with soooo much experience and user knowledge at your disposal why not create something sooo much better? The Power Hub could be usb rechargeable like every other electrical product in the world, instead of needing 10 lithium batteries for this and the remote. Also, it's really annoying having to find the mini screwdriver every time to take this apart - why not just have a click-in lid to the battery compartment? I don't want to buy a cheap knock-off that does the job better. I love your products and don't want to go that way. Please don't become just another brainless money-making company - remember your customers!Play ExperienceAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Value for MoneyAverage rating1out of 5 stars1.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?15Hub
- 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 !

- September 13th, 2019Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0My Hub won’t workPhilB |I bought this hub with a motor and Bluetooth controller to replace by faulty battery box. I also downloaded the Power Up app to use on iPhone. Fitted new batteries. Connected to my phone and also the controller. However the lights keep blinking and every time I connect the motor the connection drops off. Tried a few times batteries out ..refitted ..turn on ..wait while Bluetooth loads 100%. As soon as you put a load on it drops out again. Contacted via Lego chat. Did everything the guy said. Still no luck. Can this box be faulty or is it me ? Terrible start to my PowerUp experience. Maybe someone reading this can help.16 September 2019Marine, Customer ServiceHi there, Thank you for your review. This is not normal, the connection shouldn't drop off after your pair a motor to it. Could you please get back in touch with us again at LEGO.build/Service? We'd like to make it right.Build Time: 10 minsWas this helpful?15Hub
