USB 2.0 Hub 12+1 Port with 2.1A iCharge Port Powered with Power Supply

Tired of wrangling multiple USB 2.0 hubs? Synchrotech's 12+1 Port USB 2.0 Hub with 2.1A iCharge Port provides host computers with 12+1 additional USB ports and allows flexible tiered USB configurations with a single hub! This robust and inexpensive hub runs in self powered mode and provides over current protection at each of its downstream ports. Fully USB 2.0 compliant and USB 1.1 backward compatible, it supports low, full, and high speed USB devices and works with any system that supports the USB specification. Providing thirteen downstream ports, this hub features plug and play installation and transparent operation. This hub is fully backward compatible with USB 1.1 and will work with systems and devices using the slower standard. It comes with a free power supply with a generous 4 ampere capacity, and USB 2.0 cable to connect to a host computer.

The new model of this hub trades one data port for a high-current capacity 'iCharge" port for devices requiring 2.1 Amperes to charge, like the iPad®. The charging port is not a data port and does not allow syncing or any other functionality other than device charging. However, this lack of data transfer on the iCharge port does have a distinct advantage—the hub doesn't need to be connected to a computer in order to charge a device. The other 12 ports allow for syncing and other standard USB 2.0 operations for connected devices.
