Whilst searching around the goodness of the internet, I stumbled across a product that offers something that will come in very handle for the laptop user. CyberPower Systems offer a small USB2 hub (Hub 420 MP) that on first glance is nothing new, but how many times have I wished for a USB hub whilst on the move, only to find out that the device I want to use needs a powered hub. Well this handy little unit uses four AAA rechargeable batteries (supplied) and delivers this power to any device you plug into it. Then when you plug the unit into a dekstop PC it recharges. UK pricing seems to be around £17. Check it out here.
