Hi All,

I have an Orange Pi PC running Armbian Bionic, which has 3 USB ports. All the 3 ports are working fine. I have a total of 5 USB devices which needs to be connected.
1. Keyboard
2. Mouse
3. Wifi Adaptor
4. Printer
5. Speaker

I have a USB hub (without external power), and when I connect, I'm able to work with 4 devices only as the Printer seems to lack power. (Mouse works only when connected directly to the onboard USB port)

I have thought about the below two solutions:

1. Replace USB Speaker, Keyboard and Mouse with an Bluetooth Speaker, Keyboard and Mouse.
I would like to know if orange pi with armbian bionic supports bluetooth

Or

2. Buy a new USB hub with external power supply.

Which is the best solution?
