24-Port USB Hub Sure to Connect Every Gadget in the Neighborhood and Then Some
October 11th, 2010
Got a few too many USB gadgets on your desktop? Sick of your computer’s lowly 4 USB ports? Well sure, you can go buy another 4 or 8 port hub, but that would be for sissies. You need a real USB hub – say one with 24 ports.
This hockey puck shaped USB hub manages to cram in 24 ports by arranging most of its ports in a circle, then stacking ports one on top of the other. And if the 22 ports around the perimeter aren’t enough for you, there are 2 ports on the top for flash drives.
The hub can be connected to a computer – if you’ve got a crap-load of peripherals to connect – or it can be used in standalone mode to charge your gadgets, thanks to an included AC adapter. Each port is over-current protected as well, ensuring each one of your gadgets stays safe and sound, despite being jacked-in along with 23 of its friends.
The 24-port USB hub is available over at ThinkGeek for $49.99 (USD). That’s just over $2 a port! Such a deal.
