[Replicant] OTG hub with charging?

Hi all,

Does anyone know of an OTG hub (ideally with 2-3 USB 2.0 or 3.0
connections) that can charge the phone/tablet while the other devices
are connected?

The one I just got apparently will supply power to the USB devices when
the MicroUSB charger is connected, but not to the tablet itself.

http://lavalink.com/samsung-tablet-adapters/tl-002/ seems to claim to
supply power to the tablet, but also only has one USB port and has
sketchy compatibility information (is unrooted really required??).

I'm looking to use primarily with a Note 8.0 tablet, secondarily with a
Note 2 phone if it so happens to work. Device wise, I want mainly to
connect a USB keyboard and a USB wifi dongle.

I've read some commentary that seems to indicate that what I want
doesn't exist for safety standard reasons (power only supposed to flow
one way), but I can't tell for sure.
