A shortage of USB ports is a problem tons of people are familiar with. It's easily solved with any one of the countless USB hubs available. But what's a USB hub if it's not also a laptop charger? A one-trick pony, that's what.
After speaking to customers about what they buy and use the most in conjunction with their laptops, Lenovo learned that a large amount of people buy a spare adapter as well as a USB hub. Last week, the company revealed the Lenovo Power Hub, a device they describe as "one part power adapter and one part USB hub."
The Lenovo Power Hub combines those two devices, resulting in a single $75 purchase. Though it takes up a USB port, it more than makes up by giving users access to four ports located on the end of the power brick.
It's on sale now from Lenovo. Who wants one? More importantly, who wants the rest of the big name companies to follow suit?
