Do you find yourself frequently inserting and removing USB devices on your laptop or desktop computer? If you do then there’s a high probability that those USB ports will get busted more quickly. Worst thing is that if you’re not using a desktop computer, sooner or later there will be no more USB port left for your USB devices like thumb drives digital camera, smartphones, tablets etc. to utilize. Unlike in a desktop PC, you can easily add a USB hub via add-on modules. If this is case you might consider buying a Satechi USB 3.0 hub or any similar USB hub in your nearest computer shop.
So you might ask, why spent an extra bucks for USB 3.0 hub? If the problem we presented earlier might not convince you, let me first introduce this 10 port USB 3.0 hub from Satechi. This USB hub not just allow you to simultaneously connect up to 9 USB devices simultaneously but would also allow you to charge your tablet or smartphone via the 10th USB port. This port that is located on the side is a high current USB port with a rating of 2.1 amperes. With this rating, the Satechi 10 port USB 3.0 hub can quickly put your dead smartphone or tablet back to life.
If the high-current USB port is not in use, you can safely turn it off so that more juice will flow with the rest of the 9 USB port. Did you know that a USB device can’t perform any better if not supplied with the right amount of power? Yes, this is true especially for high-capacity external drives and other similar devices that normally require the right amount of power coming from a USB port. If that is the case, you might notice that the read and write speed is slower compared to similar devices that are directly attached to the system via SATA cables. But with the Satechi 10 port USB 3.0 hub, this will never be a problem because it has a separate power source to juice up all your USB devices.
Did I mention that the Satechi USB 3.0 hub glows when plugged in? Yes, that is correct. The 9 USB ports are LED lit allowing you to insert a USB device like your digital camera even in a dark room.
