Expand your connectivity and extend the lifespan of your Mac or PC's USB 3.0 ports. Enables connecting up to 4 devices to one USB port. Features VIA VL811 USB 3.0 hub controller chipset and latest firmware (v9.83) for maximum compatibility and performance. Unit is small, lightweight, with main power and per-port LEDs.
Full forward and backward compatibility between USB 3.0 and 2.0/1.1 hosts and devices. The hub requires no driver install (although individual devices will, as usual).
The hub's one upstream port and four downstream ports support SuperSpeed devices and performance on all 4 ports. USB's practical speeds vary by device and other traffic on the bus, but are usually 1/2 or 1/3 USB 3.0's theoretical speed of 5 Gbps.
Comes with premium 5V 4A power supply for supporting not just USB 2.0 500mA power, but also USB 3.0's more demanding 900mA per port. Power management features include the ability for devices to communicate latency tolerance to the host and for links to enter progressively lower power states when link partners are idle. The hub works in USB bus powered mode without its included AC adapter, however use without the included power adapter is not recommended, as with 2+ devices, there may be dropped connections due to insufficient power.
Not a standalone device charger: No functionality for charging iPad, iPhone, or other tablet and smartphone devices.
In the box
