7 Port USB Hub

Not all computers are built equal. The MacBook Air for instance has only one USB port, although not a lot of people on laptops have to use USB ports very often it is an occasional dilemma. Not many people want to go out and spend tons of money on an adapter that is large and bulky or even upgrade their hardware just to be able to support a couple extra plugs. Luckily for us, NewerTech has a product that is small, inexpensive and easy to use.

Now when using a laptop, like i said, not many people use the USB ports for numerous things at once. I however, do quite a bit of work with Android phones, and transferring files to different harddrives. Needless to say, i didn’t want to have to buy any hardware upgrades or get some bulky equipment to just do my daily work. NewerTech has a small, size of a credit card, 7 port usb hub that can safely power all 7 of the ports and guarantee that you wont lose connection due to insufficient power.

With this being so small, getting in the way of your working doesn’t happen. You can really set this in any spot or position to accomodate your space. This is amazing considering you can control 7 devices with this tiny little piece of equipment.I powered 3 phones, 2 hard drives, and 2 tablets all at the same time and they all powered perfectly. The best part is that for the price you get the most amount of power. Considering this is only $27.95 you have no reason not to buy one of them.

Overall, if you need to control USB devices but don’t want to spend a bunch of money or you don’t have the ports on the computer than this is the product for you. Big things come in small packages is the main idea behind this awesome hub. Head over to NewerTech and check out all their amazing products and pick something up today!
