The Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub adds nine additional USB 3.0 ports and one iPad-charging port to your PC or Mac. This allows you to connect and use USB devices such as digital cameras, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers, all from a single hub. The Hub is uniquely designed with three switches that control each group of three USB 3.0 ports; each group of three is lit with an attractive blue LED when powered on, as well as a separate LED for each port when a device is in use. Powered by USB 3.0 and providing data rates of up to 5.0Gbps, this 10-Port Hub is the ideal solution for transferring data between your computer and external USB storage devices. Equipped with a power supply, the Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub guarantees electric current stability and the effective operation of connected USB devices. It does not require any software, drivers, or complicated installation process. With the slim, strip-shape design the Hub saves your precious desktop space, and also adds style with a sleek, glossy finish. The 10-Port Hub is extremely portable and easy to move between systems or take on the road.
The 10th port, located on the end of the hub, is capable of charging your iPad and features an On/Off switch. iPads are typically unable to charge from a computer's USB ports, so the Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub provides unique functionality compared to similar hubs.
We recommend that no more than three external hard drives be connected to the 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub at one time. This will provide maximum efficiency of the 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub because it contains three chipsets (one chipset can operate one external hard drive efficiently). The three external hard drives should be connected to the first three ports on the hub (closest to the power source).
