Questions on USB 4 ports hub

Last Modified: 2017-04-26
We purchase a Aukey CB-H5 USB with 4 USB 3.0 Ports for 5Gbps Data Transfer.  A colleague just mention that we should not connect 2 or more external (1 TB) drives to this USB device due to it's electrical limit and can damage on of the drives or the USB.  Also, that we should find the limit in voltage if we were to use all USB ports.

What is EE opinion on this matter?
