3-Port USB 3.0 Hub for Laptops & Windows Based Tablets + Fast-Charge Port & Device Stand
Add USB 3.0 ports to your Windows based tablet, or any laptop, plus add a separate fast-charge port through a single USB 3.0 connection
Product ID: ST4300U3C1
- Add three USB 3.0 ports (5Gbps) to your computer using this heavy-duty hub that’s designed for stability and durability
- Cradle your smartphone or tablet, with a retractable, flip-up stand
- Charge your mobile device faster using the USB fast-charge or data port (supports USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2) — port mode is toggled by an integrated button
This USB 3.0 hub with mobile device stand expands your laptop or tablet connectivity. It works with computers, Windows based tablets, and some On-The-Go-enabled Android™ devices (when coupled with a separate OTG adapter). Now, you can connect useful peripherals such as a keyboard or an external hard drive to your tablet.
Plus, you can quick-charge a separate mobile device via the integrated fast-charge port.
Rugged design offers convenience and reliability
Unlike most desktop USB 3.0 hubs, this rugged hub is designed with a solid, high-quality housing. Plus, because it’s weighted, it remains stationary when you connect or disconnect your devices. Now you can avoid the aggravation of your hub sliding across your desk when it’s touched.
Stand makes the hub perfect for mobile devices
This space-saving USB 3.0 hub provides ergonomically-friendly access to your smartphone or tablet via an embedded flip-up stand. The solid-aluminum, retractable stand features a convenient cable-management hole, so you can quickly cradle your host mobile device while neatly organizing your cables.
You can fold the stand down when it isn’t need, and because the hub is weighted, there’s little risk of a larger tablet flipping over when placed in the stand.
Expands your USB connectivity
You can overcome port limitations on Android based tablets and smartphones by coupling this hub with a simple Micro USB to USB OTG Adapter (SKU: UUSBOTG - sold separately). With the adapter, the ST4300U3C1 acts as an OTG hub, letting you connect USB devices to your mobile device.
The hub is also natively supported by many Windows based tablets with a USB-A port.
Alternatively, this small form-factor hub can be used as a traditional USB 3.0 hub, letting you expand your connectivity while remaining backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.x devices.

Quickly charges your smartphone or tablet
Your mobile device can charge faster via the 2.1A combination fast-charge or data port. You can connect your mobile device as a host or you can fast-charge your device, by simply connecting it to the appropriate fast-charge or host port.
For devices that aren’t USB charged (for example, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4), you can cradle and connect it as a host, while continuing to charge it using its own charging mechanism.

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Buy
It is possible to use some USB hubs without a power supply, however, doing so may prevent certain high-power USB peripherals from operating.
When a power adapter is not used on a hub that comes with a power adapter, power is drawn from the USB port on the computer and then divided between the ports on the hub. This reduces the power delivery to individual ports and high-powered USB peripherals, such as external hard drives, may not start.
On USB hubs that can use a power adapter, more power can be supplied to USB ports than what is possible with a single USB port.
If your USB peripherals require power adapters, they probably do not require power from the USB port and can be used on a USB hub without a power adapter. With USB peripherals that use power adapters, the USB ports on the hub are only used for data transfer and do not draw power from the hub.
USB peripherals that require low power (for example, keyboards and mice) can be used on hubs without a power adapter, in conjunction with other low-power USB peripherals. In this case, power is drawn from the computer's USB port, as described above.
