This is a 3rd Gen! A Form Fitting USB Hub for Raspberry Pi Zero
Raspberry Pi Zero only comes with a single micro USB (OTG) port, forcing you to use a traditional USB HUB if you want to connect multiple USB peripherals to it. The whole set is bulky and inconvenient to carry around.
The Stackable USB Hub for Raspberry Pi Zero is the perfect way to expand the connectivity of the Raspberry Pi Zero and add keyboards, mice, WiFi dongles, Ethernet adapters and other USB devices. No wires and no soldering work needed. Simply mount the Stackable USB Hub under the Pi Zero using the bundled spacers, screws, bolts, and the Pi Zero will get 4 new USB 2.0 ports!. The Stackable USB Hub has been carefully designed with custom-made parts, so Pi Zero fits and stacks nicely on top on it. It also has built-in a 2-way back-powering circuit to protect against power being plugged into the Pi Zero and the Stackable USB Hub simultaneously.
USB peripherals can be power hungry. Grab an optional 5V 2.4A micro USB wall charger with 1.5M micro USB cable with power switch to ensure enough juice to power your projects.

Compatible with the latest Pi Zero v1.3!!
Modified spring loaded pogo pin locations to support the latest Pi Zero v1.3 (the one with the camera port).
USB port position rearrangements to provide best adaptability to USB devices in different sizes.
Pogo pins and the four supporting poles have been elongated to further increase the headroom between the Pi Zero board and the USB hub board, hence, longer header pins are allowed for the Pi Zero header.
This stackable USB hub design is NOT compatible with the older Pi Zero v1.2 (the one without the camera port). If you are looking for the hub version compatible with Pi Zero v1.2, check out the 2nd Gen Stackable USB Hub.
• 4-Port USB 2.0 Plug-and-Play Hub
• Compatible with USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices
• USB 2.0 High Speed, transfer rate up to 480Mbps
• Gold-plated and low-resistance spring-loaded pogo pins
• Bus-powered from Pi Zero, or powered externally via the Hub's micro-USB port
• Support maximum 2.3A current if powered by external USB charger
• Over current protection and LED indication if power rail draws more than 2.3A
• 2-way back-power protection circuitry on Pi Zero connection path

Reply to Robert White
Many thanks for your valuable comments and suggestions which have led to significant improvement on the product. There may be discrepancy of the nylon screw and nuts which possibly contributed to the issue.
We would like to send you a new pack of screw and nuts for your better user experience. Please drop us an email to cs at makerspot.com so that we can arrange to send to you.

Pogo pins in the wrong place!
This product professes to work with the pi zero v1.3, the one with the camera connector. I'm afraid it doesn't. The pogo pins for pp1 and pp6 are about 2mm too far from the pads and too close together. I tried to bend them so they'd reach the pi's pads but they snapped off. Very disappointing, the product doesn't work from the box as advertised. And no, I wasn't sent the wrong board, it has the right version number printed on it.
I'm going to wire the connection instead and hopefully then the USB board will function but the point was I shouldn't have needed to and it means I can't actually review whether the board works yet! If it does work, I won't be increasing my rating. To be fair, this is just another company not delivering on a USB board for the zero. Sigh. Andrew on 29th Jul 2016
Standoff Screws are too long
The product itself is well built and complements the pi zero nicely. However, the screws provided are too long and will not fit the standoffs correctly. I had to use spacers to get the right fit. I ordered two of these hubs and both of them came with the wrong sized screws. Makerspot needs to address this Robert White on 27th Jul 2016
Wonderfull Piece of Technology
works wonderfull except for the additional parts
the screws in the package were too long to screw them funlly into the spaceholder, the RPI was wiggeling around with 2mm space to the pins
the spaceholder's thread is low quality or somehow painted, i had a hard time getting a normal 2.5mm nut on the thread(not the included ones)
the included nuts are very very weak material, i broke the thread of the nut with easy and the placeholder wasn't even tight at the point where it broke, i could rotate it by bare hand
please check the size of the mounting parts next time and use some more quality material ... maybe add some rings to prevent scratches on the PCB
