OctoFire 8 Port USB 3.0 Hub is a Brilliant Alternative to Your Single-Port Charger

Have you ever struggled for a power outlet to charge your phone in a crowded place? I presume most of us have. In fact, it’s pretty surprising to see queues in offices surrounding a power outlet stretching farther than the ones in the canteen. Even kids quarrel over charging their iPads at school given the kind of importance technology has in their curriculum today. So does this mean the next big thing where Darwin’s “Survival of the Fittest” theory would work is when we are fighting over a power outlet? That sounds tacky and way too futile a thing to quarrel for. What we need is something more practical and convenient for everyone to use simultaneously. Keeping this thought in mind, numerous makers dived into this field and came up with multi-port chargers that could serve a number of gadgets at the same time. But like every other form of invention, they do have loopholes. By loopholes I mean the data transfer rates and the charging speed. These are the two most important criteria any consumer would want from their USB charging hub.

What’s the use of having a multi-port charger if it provides you far lesser speed than your single-port charger. The idea is to accelerate the process of device charging so that we save time and not fight over petty issues. Wouldn’t it be nice to have our meetings and conferences synced together without any official losing their device charge midway. Same goes for kids in school trying to submit their weekly assignments and not lose the iPad’s charge while doing so. I won’t say this isn’t achievable anymore at the speed we desire after stumbling upon OctoFire 8 Port USB 3.0 Hub on Kickstarter. With data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps and charging speed of 2.4 Amps per port, this is surely that one charging hub every office, school, cafe and even your home could do with.

Simplify Your Device Charging Needs

Coming from Skiva Technologies Inc. whose mission is to “simplify technology in people’s lives by providing progressive, relevant, value-priced consumer electronics products for people worldwide”, OctoFire USB 3.0 Hub is a modified version of their previous product OctoFire Charger which had done big rounds on Kickstarter last year. The unique function of the USB 3.0 Hub is its charging speed which differentiates the Hub from its contemporaries and makes it a compact and convenient solution for your multi-charging needs. A total of 8 ports comes with the charging speed of 2.4 Amps per port that can charge any of your USB device, be it iPhone, iPad, Android phones and more. You can even consider it to be more powerful than any wall charger currently available in the market.

Safe and Faster Charging

One of the best features of the OctoFire Hub is that it can work as a standalone charger even when not connected to a PC/Laptop. The device detection capability enables it to deliver optimal power required by a particular device. To add to this, there is built-in over-heat, over-charge, over-current & over-voltage protection as well. Since it uses USB 3.0 for data transfer, you can forget those painful hours waiting for large file transfers to take place. That makes it a safe and super fast charging solution you could use to power your devices anywhere.

Octagonal Design Reduces Wire Mess

Apart from being a compact design, the hub flaunts an octagonal shape in order to avoid wire mess and constitute better cable management. It’s a direct representation of what a hub should be like: accessible from all points and by everyone. So if you’re in a meeting and a number of people requires their device to be charged simultaneously, this USB 3.0 Hub could come real handy by being accessible from all corners of the table. The hub does not include a fan so you can be free from facing the terrible fan noise during meetups and hangouts.

Overall, this is ideally a Hub which is far advanced not only in charging speed and data transfer rates but also in terms of being a device everyone can actually use without facing a cable mess or noise. Currently available on Kickstarter with the Early Bird edition priced at $66, the OctoFire 8 Port USB 3.0 Hub is here to simplify your device charging needs.
