Which powered USB hub to connect Macbook Pro & microphone 48 phantom power

I just bought two new microphones to try out, but neither of them work. My old mic that doesnt need phantom power works. So I believe the non-powered usb hub I have doesnt have enough power to power the 48 phantom power needed for the new microphones.

I googled and it says I need a powered-usb-hub. But I also found that one powered-usb-hub was wired wrong and killed 3 macbook pros before the person realised it was the powered-usb killing them.

So I need a safe recommendation for a good quality powered-usb-hub that definitely wont kill my macbook pro but will power my new mics.

Help?

Thanks in advance.

I would connect the microphone into your audio interfaces mic pre-amp and enable the phantom power. That is how its done.

I guess you bought USB mics. If i was you, i would return both of them and get a regular mic and a nice little audio interface. You would be surprised at the ease and quality you will get.

I would read the MIc's PDF, as google inst always correct. Read the manufactures PDF of that mic and what ever it says you need, you need!
