13-port usb hub

Gadget lovers will understand the frustration: you go to plug in a gadget to charge or transfer data only to realize that you’ve suddenly run out of USB ports. Before you know it you’re swapping chords and chargers left, right, and upside down until your whole life is a tangled mess. Why not eliminate that pain altogether?

Amazon’s latest round of GoldBox Lightning Deals puts a 13-port USB hub on sale for just $8.75. It’s a simple little brick that can plug into any standard USB 2.0 port, and should you find the need to charge your gadgets without a computer you can pick up a 3.5mm DC cable to use with a wall outlet. The device also has its own dedicated on/off switch in case you want to cut or conserve power without having to unplug everything.

Unfortunately this doesn’t support USB 3.0 speeds, but at such a steal of a price we don’t have much room to complain. The swath of good reviews for the device don’t hurt, either. The lightning deal only lasts for about 5 hours (from the time of this posting) or until all stock is sold so you’ll have to move fast or miss out (buy it here!). Let us know if you’ll be “in for 1” in the comments below!
