What are your thoughts on Anker’s latest data hub? Would you find the individual switches useful? If so, do you want Anker to make a USB-C version? Let us know everything you’re thinking by replying!


I love the look of it … with the blue LED lights. I had something like this awhile back… can’t remember the brand but it crapped out after a short period. I’m sure Anker’s will be wayyyyy better. Only thing that I would like to see with this is perhaps a longer cable. As is, it would be great for mobile users but for desktop users, the length of the cable may be a bit challenging.

Do you know if it will have an additional power input so it can power multiple power hungry devices like hard drives?

Definitely seems similar to this one:

Sabrent 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs (HB-UM43) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JX1ZS5O/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_uw4yBb804E824

I’ve had this one for a while, and even though it works ok, I noticed that one of the ports seems to work the best when a plug is 2/3 of the way plugged in. The other 3 are fine, though. Can’t wait to try this out!

Can’t say for sure, but there seems to be a micro USB port in the first picture.

Oooh, that would be great. Imagine 4 Power IQ ports, and it just happens to be a USB adapter thing? It would be awesome.

And yes, USB C is a must-have at this point.


Didn’t see that, nice catch. That’s definitely a micro port. Excited for this one.

Wow! It looks interesting!

Like the Powerport cube, a switch for the USB

Excited for this. I feel like Anker should make multiple versions. One that plugs into USB C ports and another that gives you more USB C ports.

This would be a lot more compelling with USB-C.

This product is now technically available, but I’m going to hold off on posting the link to prevent someone from actually buying it…

What do people switch off with these types of plugs?

Thumb/hard drives, lights/light strips, fans, speakers, webcams, card readers, mice keyboards, beverage chillers, scrolling led boards, audio equipment & email notifiers are the main USB devices that could benefit from a on off switch.


It’s also available to order from amazon.co.uk :slight_smile:

Could the switch cycle between three states?:

  • Power only
  • Power & data
  • Off

If I am connecting my device to foreign ports, I’d like power only to avoid any possible data exchange with an evil port, e.g. skimmers or fake ports at airports. If I am connecting foreign devices to my equipment, I’d like to prevent unnecessary device installations, unexpected trust relationships, other auto usb behaviors. By way of example, I see some Android phones, attach in USB, charge only mode by default.
