Offering a preferable format if you want to mount it on the bottom or side-by-side or with another HAT below it. It’s also great as-is as a small USB hub says Adafruit.
Prefer to have the aforementioned extras you can also buy the Raspberry Pi Zero 4-Port USB Hub with ferrite bead, standoffs and pogo pins for $9.95 as the Zero4U 4 Port USB Hub for Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 also available from Adafruit.
“The USB hub will take power directly from your Pi Zero, so you don’t need to power the USB hub separately. However you can use the JST XH2.54 connector on board as an alternative power input port. The blue onboard LED is the power indicator, and will light up when power is connected. Each USB port uses a dedicated white LED as a transaction indicator, and a dedicated electrolytic capacitor to help stabilise the output voltage.”

– Power Mode: Bus-Power / Self-Power
