Power Usage Alerts: To ensure a stable connection, don't use this hub with high power consumption devices (those exceeding a combined current of 4 Amps among all ports) such as some large-capacity hard drives. This hub is not meant to serve as a stand-alone charger. It is not compatible with iPads or any other devices which have irregular charging requirements. Some USB 3.0 devices (such as Apple SuperDrive and some WD hard drives) require direct connection to host ports. 2.4Ghz wireless devices (keyboards, mice, etc.) may not work around USB 3.0 ports. Try using a USB 2.0 connection instead.

My laptop has 3 USB slots (one of which is permanently taken by my wireless mouse) so I was looking for options to give myself more USB options, whether for charging other devices or flash drives or backup hard drives. This 7 port hub does all of that and more, also able to plug into an outlet through an included adapter to provide even more power and become a makeshift charging station.
PROS: -Adds 7 ports (4 of them USB 3.0) to your computer -Can be used either alone or with wall adapter to provide more power -Completely plug-and-play, doesn't need any software or drivers to work -Small and can easily fit on a desk or next to a computer -Attached USB cord is long enough that this hub doesn't have to be directly next to the computer -Bottom has layer of non-slip material -Made of aluminum, looks nice and sleek
CONS: -USB cord is permanently attached and cannot be removed for easier travel
This is wonderful! First off everything (almost) in my house runs off a USB charger of some sort. We are always trying to swap out chargers and who gets to charge what in order to make room for one another. With this it has 7 slots you can either plug it into the car usb charging port or with the AC plug in the wall. It works great and we are able to charge all 5 of our electronics. From my husbands E-Cig to our kids tablets and even my phone. The charge seems pretty quick. It is small and fits pretty much everywhere, as it doesnt take up to much space. its sleek looking. All around this is such a great product and i am happy that we have it.
While this USB port works well so far, I was disappointed in the 5V power adapter. It's labeled as a "Travel Adapter" and has a very short wire to the outlet. Coupled with the short, hardwired USB 3.0 cable, this makes this unit impossible to use with my (and probably your) computer set up UNLESS your outlet is right next to your computer. Luckily, I had another 5V wall wart with a compatible connection.
