Belkin USB Hubs

Belkin this morning shook up its approach to its USB hub range with three models that put extra ports in unique locations. The Hub-To-Go (pictured) is a rare convertible device that changes its role on the fly: while it includes a stable base with a tray for an MP3 player or other small devices, the 4-port hub detaches entirely to stow away for portable use. Its swiveling connector also lets it fit into notebooks and other systems without blocking nearby ports, Belkin says. The Hub-To-Go will sell in late August for $50 along with the Swivel Hub, which eliminates the base to lower the cost to $30.

A third hub, the Clip-On, is stationary and attaches to a desk or cable bundle to provide four USB ports without consuming valuable space. Two of these jacks are top-mounted to provide easier access for hot-swapped devices, Belkin says. The Clip-On joins the other hubs for the August release and sells for $30.
