USB hub is deactivated during iPod syncing
USBfever has launched two new products for the iPhone and iPod; a 3-Port USB Hub with a sync connector, and the iSponge Docking Entertainment System. The USB accessory is essentially an iPod docking cable spliced by a USB hub. The 30-pin docking connector supports both Data HotSync and charging functions for all iPhones and iPod touches, along with the iPod classic and 4th- or 5th-generation iPod nanos. The USB hub is deactivated while the cable is used for syncing an Apple device.
The new iSponge Docking Entertainment System combines a dock and speakers. It can be powered by three AAA batteries or using an AC adapter. When connected to a wall outlet, the device will charge the docked iPhone or iPod even if the system is turned off. The standard iSponge ships in black, but can be ordered in yellow as well.
The 3 Port USB is now shipping for $15, while the iSponge Docking Entertainment System can be purchased for $130.
