IOGEAR intros 3 USB hub
IOGEAR on Monday announced the release of its 3-port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub, which not only expands the available USB ports of a Windows or Mac laptop or PC, but also includes a mini USB cord for transferring data from or charging cellphones or other compatible portable electronics. Both the mini-USB and USB cords tuck away into the sides of the hub for a clean and organized package.
The three USB ports are spaced wider than on traditional notebooks and computers to accommodate larger USB cables, while allowing transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps. The USB and 5-pin mini-B USB ports will charge devices that require no more than 350mAh and 5V of power.
The IOGEAR 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable is available for purchase now, priced at just under $13.
