Product Description

Featuring a clean, compact design, this USB 2.0 hub enables two devices to share a single available USB port with full USB 2.0 compatibility and performance. Hub uses a high quality NEC chipset.

Common Uses
Common uses include connecting both keyboard and mouse via a single USB cable, for industrial environments where space is a premium, and for any situation where a simple USB 2 port splitter is required. Great for travel due to the ultra compact design and built in 12-inch USB cable.

Charging
HUB IS NOT A STANDALONE CHARGER. Functions as a USB hub only and will not charge phones or tablets: No special charging functionality for charging an iPad, iPhone, or other tablet and smartphone devices with or without a PC connected. Not BC 1.1 / 1.2 compatible.

Power
This bus-powered hub shares available power (500mA) from the single upstream USB port to each of the two downstream USB ports. Because power is shared, devices connected via the hub should be low powered (keyboards, mice, etc), or self-powered (printers, powered hubs, powered external hard drives).
