These days USB truly has become universal. With the ability to connect and charge your phones, tablets, game controllers, speakers, and even power external drives. Before the days of USB there were many different kinds of connectors for all of these devices, Com, parallel, external SCSI, PS/2, etcetera. Due to the rapid expansion of the USB standard – there is an issue in most homes these days, a lack of support for a universal hub where everyone can charge their devices at one centralized location. Vantec is looking to solve this with their 7-Port Dedicated Aluminum USB Smart Charger.
