If you’re even a moderate fan of technology, you’ve probably got a solid collection of devices that includes a smartphone, tablet, and Amazon Kindle. And you probably have a few more battery-powered USB devices kicking around. While all of these devices deliver endless fun and entertainment, playing musical chairs with electrical outlets to charge them is annoying.
Enter the Octofire 8-port turbo-smart USB charger. This hub provides eight USB ports and plenty of electrical current for you to simultaneously charge all of your devices. Most other USB hubs out there work optimally only with one brand of devices, such as Apple or Samsung. Thanks to smart-detection circuitry, the Octofire works equally well on all of your devices no matter what brand they are. Each port also delivers a current up to 2.1 amps/5 volts, strong enough to ensure that your devices charge as quickly as possible.
With just under two weeks left in its Kickstarter fundraising campaign, the Octofire has raised more than three times its goal of $20,000. With a prototype in place and a manufacturer lined up, expect to see this powerful USB hub-charger on shelves within a few months.
