Add up to Seven USB 3.0 Ports to Your Computer

Never again will you be short on USB ports! Once hooked up to your computer* through the included USB 3.0 host cable, the Plugable USB3-HUB7-81X instantly gives you seven additional USB 3.0 ports, so you can simultaneously connect multiple USB-enabled peripherals to your computer.

Super Speed

The USB 3.0 ports deliver screaming-fast data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps*, allowing data to move quickly between devices, ideal for high-throughput devices such as USB hard drives, flash drives, and USB video adapters. They are also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 hi-speed devices (rates up to 480Mbps), and USB 1.1 full-/low-speed devices (rates 12/1.5 Mbps).

*Transfer rates are device and USB host controller dependent.

USB Charging

USB port has become the method of choice to power and charge a range of battery-powered devices from headsets and controllers to phones and tablets. Some of those mobile devices have adopted proprietary mechanisms to draw more power than USB 3.0 was designed to allow, which has caused confusion about charging.

That is being solved by the Battery Charging (BC 1.2) Standard - when both the device and the hub/charger are BC Standard compliant, it can charge at a faster rate (up to 1.5A) in a standard way.

Both charge and dedicated charging (DCP) are supported, along with support for other exclusive charging signals when being used as a stand-alone charger if the phone or tablet also supports these modes.

Additionally, with built-in USB over-current protection, this hub supports a maximum current of up to 900mA per port (up to 1.5A for BC 1.2 devices), protecting your device from damage.

This bub features two VIA VL812 Rev B2 hub chipsets with the latest v9095 firmware for maximum compatibility and performance with most USB 3.0 host controllers. This firmware also allows the hub to be a stand-alone (not connected to host computer) smart USB charger (ports 1 & 7) which is able to select the best charging mechanism for the attached device.

  • Microsoft Windows systems should install latest manufacturer USB 3.0 host controller drivers and Windows Updates for best results. Apple Mac OS X and Linux / Unix systems require latest operating system updates for best compatibility.
  • Not recommended for use with older Texas Instruments, Fresco Logic, Etron, or Wistron USB 3.0 host controllers.
  • This hub can act as a standalone charger on ports 1 & 7 and can charge phones and tablets as it has special charging functionality for charging iPads, iPhones, and other tablets and smartphone devices. It is also BC 1.1 / 1.2 compatible.
  • Some devices such as the Apple SuperDrive look for Apple-specific signaling and will not work when connected through any USB hub.
  • This hub is not recommended for use with USB 3.0 PCI-e add-on cards for older Apple Mac Pro systems because of limitations in their software support for USB 3.0 hubs.
  • 2.4Ghz wireless devices such as wireless keyboard/mouse receivers, Bluetooth and WiFi adapters, may not work in close proximity to USB 3.0 devices or hubs. Connecting wireless devices to a USB 2.0 port is recommended for best results.
