Modular USB hub & charging station: HUB IT

Boot Camp feature for Friday, August 15, 2014

 A modular USB hub and charging station.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    An Italian tech start up called Eggtronic is out with a gadget designed to solve a problem faced by more and more households.   How to keep all of those phones, tablets game controllers and more…charged up?   Founder and CEO Igor Spinella says his solution is called the HUB IT...

“You can charge and sync up to seven devices simultaneously.  Even nine if you consider the Qi wireless charger.  HUB IT comes with the four most common ones.  Micro USB, Mini USB, Apple Lightning, Apple Dock.  But many other ones are available and you can customize it in a few seconds.”

The design is clever and stylish and the ports are USB 3.0 for speed.  You can find HUB IT at Amazon and other retailers for about 80 dollars.    You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
