What you need to know
- Plugable has announced a new 7-port charging hub.
- The new hub is designed to charge all the things and can be stacked if seven ports aren't enough.
Plugable has just taken the wraps off a new 7-port charting hub that's designed to be stacked if you need more places to plug things in. Capable of handling both data and power, the hub is equally comfortable at the office and at home.
The new hub adds "seven SuperSpeed data transfer and charging ports to any USB 3.0 or USB-C laptop," or it can just be used as a standalone charging up if that's something you're looking for. The dual-connection approach of USB-C and USB 3.0 via USB-A means you have additional flexibility as well.
Plugable expects the new hub to be used at offices and at home, especially with more people getting the opportunity to mix the two nowadays. If you work from home, this could be the perfect companion for all those accessories that need to be plugged in. Have a power-hungry iPhone 12 Pro Max? You can charge that, too.
You can order the new Plugable 7-port USB hub from Amazon right now. There's a special launch offer that means you can get yours for just $38.95 (opens in new tab) so long as you clip the on-screen coupon, too. Planning on stacking these things? Buy them all now while that discount's alive!
