While many modern devices are going USB-C and a lot of our computing can be done completely wirelessly these days, there are still times when you need to plug in your trusty USB-A thumb drive or hook up a device via a USB cable for syncing. Occasionally, you may find this cumbersome if your laptop has few ports available or if your desktop machine has USB ports hidden away around the back. That's when something like HooToo's 4-port USB 3.0 hub comes in super handy and right now you can add one to your desk or laptop bag for only $7 via Amazon. All you have to do is enter code 67AENXP8 during checkout to score the discount and take it down to its best ever price. It's a no-brainer at this low a price, even if you only find yourself using it a few times a year.
HooToo's hub essentially turns one USB 3.0 port on your computer and turns it into four that can be used simultaneously. It's completely plug-and-play and works out of the box with both Windows and Mac machines. All of its ports support transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps and its thermal-conducting aluminum alloy body not only looks great but ensures that it doesn't overheat even when all of the ports are in use. It's also super slim so will slip into your bag easily without adding any bulk.
The above code works on both the gray and silver models so you can take your pick. Customer reviews have been excellent so far with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.
