Don’t be fooled.  This is not a power strip.  It won’t plug into your wall and instead connects to your computer’s USB port allowing you to charge up to 4 USB based devices at the same time or perhaps sync a whole mess of iPhones to your laptop.  Sure, USB hubs have long existed, but what makes this one particularly attractive is that it looks like an power strip.  We’re not sure if the switch really works to engage or disengage the power, and for those of you that tend to spill crumbs every where included are colorful USB covers.  Sorry,  no support for USB 3.o, but there is a 3-foot cable if that is any consolation.

ThinkGeek sells it for $9.99.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
