What is a real universal USB hub and why is it better?

The truly “universal” charging hub is the “holy grail” of device charging.

Most charging hubs claim to be “universal” but they are not.  They are either underpowered, failing to deliver the maximum and best power to each port.  Or they just apply one charging standard to anything that is plugged in.  Some handle many mobile devices but very few come with user-updatable firmware that assures you that future USB-chargeable devices will be supported.

Is it universal: Our universal hubs identify any type of USB-chargeable device, set the charger to the device’s optimum charging profile and charge it to its optimum specs: iPads, iPhones, iPods, Samsung Galaxies, tablets, Kindles, Nooks and other eReaders, mobile phones, Bluetooth headsets, scanners, game controllers, cameras, 3D glasses . . . virtually anything that charges via standalone USB.*

Is it future-proof:  Just as important our hubs will handle the inevitable changes made for new devices.  Ask if other hubs have this feature.  If they don’t, you will be buying a new one as new technology comes along.

We provide USB board components for OEM applications.  Call for details.

Fixed Charge Hubs

Charge and Sync-Charge Hubs (500mA)

Most of our hubs include:**

  • Expansion ports: The sync charge versions have expansion ports for daisy-chaining multiple hubs and offer sophisticated syncing capabilities.
  • Syncing and file management: They Ideally suited for many file management applications that have USB syncing features, these hubs support the syncing of devices that permit USB management: Many tablets and mobile devices, including Apple iPads, iPad minis, iPhones and iPods using iTunes, Apple Configurator and other wired MDM software, Kindles, Nooks, etc. 
  • Future-Proof: Perhaps just as important, these advanced, professional hubs are future-proof.  Their firmware can be updated with new charging profiles as new USB devices are introduced. Firmware is updated from a web site and ported from a host (PC or MAC) directly to the hub.  If a device profile is not available, Cambrionix will create one.  When new devices are created (and many will be created), your charging hub will not be rendered obsolete.
  • User-Programs: Unlike any other professional hub, the sync charge versions of our universal hubs let you write your own terminal emulation scripts to control the hubs and devices connected to each port.  This lets more sophisticated users create their own applications to conserve energy, change between charge and sync mod
