Keep your devices ready to use with the Tripp Lite U360-412 USB 3.0 Charging Hub. It's a simple way to start a charging station for your home or office. This item plugs directly into a computer's USB 3.0 port and provides two USB 3.0 Super-Speed peripheral ports, four USB 2.0 high-speed peripheral ports and one charging port for tablets such as an iPad. Use it to eliminate the need to wait until one device is charged to begin charging another. Convenient top plugging on two of the USB 2.0 ports offer thumb drive access. A dedicated charging port on this USB 3.0 charging port works to supply the extra amperage that you need to charge tablets, which most USB hubs do not include. An LED power indicator alerts you of status, and Plug and Play design makes it virtually effortless to use. This USB charging hub automatically switches to the highest speed supported by the peripheral, so that you can achieve a fast and reliable operation, up to 5Gbps.
