Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2015-02-01

Skiva’s OctoFire 8 Port USB 3.0 Hub is the only USB hub you will ever need. In addition to syncing data at 5 Gbps speed, it also delivers more charging power than any other Wall Charger currently available in the market. OctoFire-Hub delivers whopping 2.4 Amps per port (12 Watts) of power to rapidly charge your devices. This will simplify charging of your iPads, iPhones, Android Smartphones and Tablets. It is compatible with all latest phone and tablet models like Apple iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 etc. OctoFire-Hub acts like a standalone charger when not connected to PC/laptop. Intelligent device detection makes it possible to deliver optimal power to any device you connect to it. It has built-in over-heat, over-charge, over-current & over-voltage protection. It can transfer data at super-speed of USB 3.0 for eight devices and you can expect up-to 5 Gbps speed of data transfer. No more waiting for files to get copied.

my octofire had 4 of its ports dead. at this point what can i do about it?

Review from Kickstarter
Mine has never worked well for data transfer to a PC so I've just never bothered. As mentioned, I have PC, so there's USB a plenty. As a high speed charger mine is still going strong and it has several 6-10' lighting and other usb cables running to various points of the room

Backed the first Octofire project. Died in less than a year. Now this one already has a dead port on it. Can't say the design with the cords going in all directions makes much sense either now that I've been using it for awhile, it just makes a big mess that is difficult to manage. Definitely won't be backing the next one they come out with.

@Creator.
Disappointed with the output power for my Android devices.
Even Mogics bagel USB produce higher power.

Review from Kickstarter
I've both the original OctoFire Charger and OctoFire Hub. I find the charging high amp devices much faster on the charger than the hub. Cables are the same. All Samsung original micro USB cables. Any ideas? Also, the hub is not very stable under Windows 10. Frequent disconnection of all USB 3.0 devices. On the Mac ok. Stable for months.

As with Turaj Pilehvar below from last year, I'm finally utilizing (or trying to) my octofire and it makes a very flaky USB 3.0 connection with my computer when trying to sync iPhones. No sync will complete as iTunes says the phone has been disconnected shortly after the sync starts. I have now used it with 2 computers (brand new one with same result) What can be done about this?

@llya I noticed the same thing. I have to unplug ang plug the USB cable from computer too to restart my OctoFire. I have to do it everytime, because if I don't, I can't charge my devices.

Review from Kickstarter
Interesting, it seems that after a PC restart the hub reduces the power it sends to the charging ports to 0.5A. Taking out the AC power reduces it even more to 0.1A. Plugging the USB cable from computer to the hub out and then back in seems to restart the hub and solves the problem so that my N5 can draw 1.5A again (right after PC restart it's limited to 0.5A)

@Creator Still no word from your team about my non functional hub. I was not impressed when I got an email about all of your Black Friday deals (including the defective hub) when you can't even get your support team to help with existing units...

My unit is not charging anything or transferring any data. The light is on and the power adapter is plugged in as is the USB3 connector. Nothing charges when plugged in. I'm hoping I got a defective unit with the comments below being so positive. Please help!

Anyone else having issues with the iPhone 6 Plus syncing over the Octofire? When mine is plugged in, it connects and disconnects every 5 seconds. The issue does not occur when I connect directly to my pc.

I didn't receive the tracking information but have received the OctoFire package itself today in Taiwan. It works perfect as a charger and a USB 3.0 hub in my preliminary test. Thank you Skiva team for the hard work. If one day you have a product for USB 3.1 type C please do let us know. : )

Support team never contacted me to resolve my issue. Still was not able to receive my item despite it says that item has arrived since October 2 in country of destination. Im sure this is not an issue with the customs as I've been shipping stuff with no issues at all. RS258139114NL

OK - I am having the same issue with an iPad 2 - now I understand why (sort of). I ordered some short Lightning cables from Skia a week ago and to my huge surprise - a shipping label has been created and nothing shipped...

Myron Uecker
Review from Kickstarter
Connected to my Mac I'm seeing the same thing as @Tony Leung with an iPad 2 saying "Not charging". Newer devices connected via Lightning port seem to charge at full speed. One thing I noticed in System Information is that my Mac sees Octofire as a USB 2.0 hub when connected to iPhones and iPads. I think when it is connected to the iPad 2 it only wants to charge at 500 mA max power for USB 2.0, thus the reason it says Not Charging despite the hub being capable of a lot more. I saw the same thing on the USB 3.0 hub I was using before, although that hub didn't say it was capable of charging at higher power.

Review from Kickstarter
Woah! Copy huge files (1-2GB each) is blazingly fast between my 4 hard drives using this hub. Previously 4 hard drives were connected to an Prolink USB 3.0 powered hub and got around 50-60MB/sec. Now, min 70-100MB/sec. I'm amazed.

@Chris
5.5 Amps at 19V is the output rating of the power adapter. Please be assured that the total output of the OctoFire-Hub is 19.2 Amps / 96 Watts (2.4A / 5V per port), when used it with the provided 105Watt (19V / 5.5A) power adapter. @Shreyes
Thanks for your support and understanding. We are glad to know that the product met your expectations. We will make sure that shipping forwarders take extra precautions to avoid any damage to the package in future. @Lester

Hi, Received my charger today and I thought it packed something like 16 amps, but it only support 5.5 amps??? That is not even close to 2.4 amps per port....
Was that documented somewhere?

Review from Kickstarter
My package arrived yesterday very badly packed. The plastic packing mould was flimsy and was not supporting the product at all, the box was bent out of shape, but thankfully the product was fine. Product is good will give reviews after a week's usage.
