Cheaper 24-Port USB Hub Is Available At ThinkGeek

24-port-usb-hub-wheel-thinkgeek-big

Do you remember that 24-port USB hub that looks like a wheel? It’s now available at Thinkgeek for a better deal. Back in January, the device was priced at $69.99. For now, it’s $49.99, practically $20 cheaper from the USBFever’s version.


Wheel of Fortunate Availability

We have this problem with hubs, a circle of fail type of problem. We notice we require a hub. We count the amount of things we want to plug into said hub, and then we buy a hub of approximately that size. Then two months later, we realize we’ve acquired a bunch more things we’d like to plug in, but we don’t have the available ports. D’oh. So we get a slightly larger hub. Which is great! For a couple months…

So we’ve decided it’s best if we just get the largest, most monstrous hub on the market, because having more ports than we need is a much nicer problem than having to acquire a new hub every few months. This puppy has 24 ports. (And you thought our 16 port hub was crazy!) Connect up to 24 USB devices with lightning fast 480Mbps transfer speeds. You can power this hub either directly from your computer or from an AC outlet. This means you can recharge your digital camera, flipcam, mp3 player, cell phone, everything you want, anywhere there’s a wall socket. This top grade hub features automatic over-current protection for each port, hot swapping plug-and-play connection, and the ability to daisy chain up to 127 USB devices if you’re really crazy.

  • Seems like that would take a lot of power.

    Can you really run 24 devices with this bad boy at the same time? At full speed? Yea right!!

    • Hello Will,

      Of course, if it’s only using a single USB port, or even using Y-Cable to hook up with your PC, the power won’t be enough! Luckily, It has included a AC/DC wall adapter 100-240v to power up the extra USB ports. So the 24-port should be usable. :)

      But I can’t recommend you to plug 24 external hard drives at the same time! It’s not tested yet so I can’t give any certain response.
