Can this be used as a non-powered hub?

Although the new 27" iMac has 4 USB 3.0 ports, I'm already using 3 (for external drives). So now I'm wondering if I can successfully hook this Belkin up to the last remaining port (giving me 4 available again). Why? I simply do not want to plug yet another power adapter into the wall....

  • Let me follow up to my last post. My Belkin USB 3.0 4-Port Hub is connected directly to my MacBook Air Mid 2012 release, I have not tried this on the iMAC.
