Charge Flex 8" (Win 10) and use the USB port at same time?

Hello all, new to forum and with a question.  I have purchased an Insignia Flex 8 with Win 10 for use with a home automation system.  For this to work the tablet has to be on continually and therefore has to be connected to the battery charger continually. Problem is though, there is only one USB port and that port is used both for charging and for connection to other USB devices (such as my home automation modem).  


My question is, is there any way of connecting my device to the USB port and also connecting the charger?  Would a hub work or a "Y" cable of something?  How would it be connected?


Thanks in advance for any help. Smiley Happy

Hello nosmoke,


Welcome to Community@Insignia! I apologize for the tardy reply.


Since your intended use for your Flex tablet is somewhat out of the scope of general use, I recommend contacting Insignia Support at 877-467-4289 for further assistance discussing your request.
