Not sure if the same applies to the Xarmor.
Afraid of that.. my keyboard/mouse is about 10 feet away from the tower (and I wheel it around at times) so I only want 1 cable, as it makes it easier. Doesn't seem possible without using a 1 to 2 USB adapter that isn't powered. Could have power issues...

This won't work for me. My keyboard is pretty far from my tower (Hence why I need atleast 1 USB on the keyboard for the mouse). Having to use 2 USB for the actual keyboard wouldn't work for me...

What to do...
The U9BL is natively a PS2 keyboard, so if you want also the usb hub, two cables are mandatory.

BTW I think that connecting the keyboard to the HUB internally, and then use an Y USB cable (to avoid draining problems) to connect the single cable to the PC could be a mod not too difficult to made

Think I might just run 2 USB cables with extenders.. and tape the cables together.

10ft USB extension cable + the 6 foot cable on my mouse/keyboard is right at the 16ft mark for passive USB 2.0. So i'm sort of worried about power issues with that method too.

Don't worry about this, I used for years an HSDPA modem trough a 12m Usb cable (more than double the maximum lenght, provided by the specs) and an HSDPA modem is a drainy thing, often a bit above of the 500mA limit

I went a head and bought the XArmor with a 10ft USB extension cable (for the USB hub), and a 10ft PS/2 extension cable (for the keyboard). That way I can take advantage of being able to press as many keys as I want.
