Introduction

Before USB, there were literally dozens of different standards for connecting all the varied devices to a PC. Com, parallel, external SCSI, and PS/2 ports were needed to connect things like printers, scanners, network adapters, external drives, keyboards, and mice. UBS eliminated the need for all those various standards for one high speed universal connection. Now almost every imaginable device that can connect to a PC uses USB. As the number USB enabled devices grew, so did another issue, there was often not enough USB connectors on a computer to connect everything at once. The USB hub was born, but there was still another issue that needs to be resolved, limited charging power.

Kingwin has released two products designed to offer USB 3.0 expansion to any computer in need. The KWZ-400 Aluminum 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub offers easy expansion. The KWZ-700 Aluminum 6-Port USB 3.0 Hub +1 IQ Smart Charging Port adds additional ports and smart charging on one of the ports via an external AC adapter. Both models have built-in surge protectors to keep your devices safe, LED operation lights, and compact aluminum housings.
