Actually, mytwocents is right. I don't know why he was thumbed down. USB outputs at 5V and has a certain current. When more current is needed beyond what the USB can supply, voltage drops and can cause damage to the connected device and to the hub. However, generally USB ports and devices that connect via them have enough protective circuitry but this is still very possible.

Actually, this is one of the things that USB is meant to do. You can have up to 127 devices connected to a single USB controller. These plugs are essentially acting as a hub. Also, you won't be drawing more power than what your system can handle, there is only a certain amount of power that can be drawn from a single USB port, so basically, only certain devices will receive power.   
   
 Sorry to be that guy

Uh, well, devices ain't devices, especially in terms of power supply. Just try to run like 4 external HDD's (the ones without additional power supply/own power supply unit) and see what happens. Best case to happen will be that during a random tiny phase of low voltage one of the HDD's will fail while writing data. I rate against trying to make this to happen.
Whatever, it's up for everybody to test it.

Multiple USB-cables into one port. Could be useful for some things, like my computer that only has two in the front, so I have to unplug something if I want to connect a camera or something.

Mine has 8 in the back and 6 in the front. 4 of the ones in the front are some super-charge ******** whatever which is not supported by my motherboard, so I only have the two USB's.
