Product Description

Our aluminum hub conveniently adds four high speed USB 2.0 ports to your desktop or laptop computer. The slim form factor saves space while the port placement and hard-mountable metal base keep the hub in place even when several USB devices are connected. The removable aluminum base can be hard-mounted to your desk. The hub easily slides from that base, and makes it convenient for travel as well. This hub can be self-powered from the USB port, or utilize an AC power supply adapter (included). Downstream ports have automatic connect and speed detection plus overcurrent protection with auto recovery. Add additional hubs to daisy-chain up to 127 devices; this hub delivers high speed data transfers up to 480 Mbps. Whether you are downloading or transferring spreadsheets, MP3 files, digital pictures, or video streams, our 4-port hub makes connecting several high speed USB 2.0 devices hassle-free.

      We are a small dental office. When we upgraded to digital x-ray sensors our sensors would randomly not take an x-ray. We tried TONS of difficult "fixes" for this problem. Finally we were talking to one of techs (someone unrelated to our digital imaging) and he suggested we try this product. I immediately bought it and we haven't had a problem since!

        I use this device to expand the USB ports on my laptop. I have gone through (read: "broken") two USB hubs so far, and I was looking for something sturdy and flexible. This device does the trick - very sturdy, portable, flexible (PC or AC powered), and relatively small. I don't anchor it, but I find the USB cable attachment to my PC to be a good length and I can move it wherever needed on my desk. All devices I've attached to it have worked perfectly.

        • 4-Port USB 2.0 Aluminum Hub for Chromebooks, Laptops, and Desktops

          Q:

          I have a IMac mid 2010 running Yosemite, I need more USB hubs so I can plug in my phone to get pictures off it and my camera. I recently bought a hub only to find out it was 3.0 with a miniplug. Could not use it and returning it cost a bunch of money I did not have. Will this hub work? Does it require an external power supply(I am out of wall plugs too. The old one I had died(broke) so I want to replace it.

          Q:

          I think I've answered my question about the different replies to the questions about power drain. The power cube for this hub has the max drain cited as 2.5 ma. Does that means 625 ma max per port? Is the current limitation per hub or for the whole device? That is, running off the power cube, can one draw more than 626 ma off one port if nothing's hanging off the other ports? (I'd not drive the hub that hard, but it's nice to know how it's supposed to work.) Thanks for your help!

            A:

            The 4 port HUB has a 2.5amp power adapter. This will provide 500ma of power to each port. When a single device is connected you will still only get 500ma on that port. Unfortunately you can not draw more than 500ma off of a single port.

          Q:

          The answer to the last question above stated that running this hub off the power adapter delivered 500 ma to each port. But the answer to a previous question stated the output as 5v/1a. So what is the max drain at each port, 500 ma or 250 ma? BTW, this is a very nice hub!
