I always find products like this somewhat difficult to review… I mean… it’s a USB Hub. It doesn’t make toast, so i can’t tell you how the food it produces tastes. It doesn’t play music, so I can’t tell you what the sound quality is like… It’s a box, designed for charging USB devices…. and as you’d hope when you’ve spent money on a USB Hub, it should charge USB devices.

Whilst this really shouldn’t need mentioning, the HooToo is extremely stable, which I would say should be a minimum requirement for a USB device, but sadly isn’t, as many of you probably know if you’ve ever bought a USB hub in the past! I’ve had it plugged into my mac at work for the last few months, and have yet to see it drop. It was also extremely easy to set up. Just plug in and go. As USB hub’s go, it’s also not bad looking either.

Really, i can’t fault it. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Charge things, and not disconnect. Can’t really ask for any more or less of a USB hub!
