Is 7 Volts Close Enough To 7.5?

umm, he was asking about 7 volts, not 5, and now he thinks it takes 11.3, in which case 12 volts would work (although after long periods of time the hib could blow a fuse ((if ur hub has a fuse like mine)) which is no big deal)

And it's not that crucial of a decision, as replacing a $10 hub isn't the end of the world.

|After testing the adapter with two separate multimeters, they both agree that it puts out 11.3 volts, even though it's labeled at a 7.5 volt output. Maybe I should just give it a full 12 volts.|
Thats a common problem with those DC wallpacks. Your measuring its output under no load, and it will give you a totally different figure then when its under full load.
either way, most of the cheap ones often provide more DC voltage than is displayed on the label, which is why the REAL linear regulators are inside your circuitry.
Feeding it 12V might not be the best Idea because that 12V is constant under more load, and therefore your creating more heat for your linear regulators (inside) to dissapate...
