Default USB Port expansion

I have a slim with only two USB ports. Can you use any USB hub to expand the USB ports on the PS3? Also, Is there a way to simply plug your controllers into a USB AC adapter into the wall and charge it?

I have an AC to USB adapter with two USB ports on it that I use for my iPod it doesn't work for the controllers. I used to use it for the Xbox 360 controllers but it only worked with the original controllers the newer Xbox 360 controller doesn't work so I was not surprised that the PS3 controllers didn't work.

I use a generic USB hub for mine. Works great.

I charge my controllers with a USB cable into my PC. Never tried an adapter that plugs into the wall.
