    I want know if i use USB-Hub with external power supply, can it charge the ipod touch 2G without the need to plug it into USB? That means i want to charge it with the adapter powered by AC adapter(plug), and i insert the cable USB provided by apple to the Hub. Can it work? someone please tell me!

    because i dont want to buy the power adapter just to charge my ipod, i prefer to buy an USB-Hub like Targus Slim Desktop USB 2.0 4 Port Hub or belkin USB 2.0 Plus Hub 4 port, which has the same price

    Since it will add my usb connection(which will i need), and i can use it for many other devices too..

    I don't believe so - you can try it, but most of the time, when the PC shuts down, the USB hub shuts down as well.
