Buffalo BSH4A02 USB Hub Kills Vampire Power With Individual Port Power Switches
Vampire power has long been addressed in power strips with the addition of individual kill switches per outlet, but what about those powered USB ports? The BSH4A02 4-port USB hub from Buffalo features a power switch per port, ostensibly letting you disable select USB devices while saving power and preventing ports from being fried during start up. Each switch features an LED light to indicate power and the hub itself is available in 4 colors. No word on a US release date, but expect it to go on sale in Japan this October for $40.
