Best WiFi Adapter?

I’m using the rpi3 with OSMC, I’d like to try to add another wifi adapter, for the purpose of setting up a WiFi-only hotspot (bridge mode).
I’m trying to figure out which WiFi adapter will work best with OSMC out of the box and without a powered hub.

I’ve been looking at TP-Link TL-WN725N, TP-Link TL-WN823N, Edimax EW-7811UN.

All those are available at a local store, they were picked out of convenience.
The last one, by Edimax, says that it is ideal for RaspberryPi. Was it tested with OSMC?

Any thoughts on the whole WiFi Bridge idea?

Thoughts? Thanks!

None of the above will work with OSMC as a hotspot, as they do not support nl80211 based tethering. They are all 8812au based and the driver does not support this.

Edit: I’m thinking of 8192cu, I think 8812au does have an nl80211 driver.

Just to clarify, I’d like to bridge between the built-in wifi card onboard the pi3 and the new one I’m going to get. Does that change anything?
