Much More Than A Usb Hub
Have you ever wondered how important these days, having a small unit on hand able to support different operations? Think of the power bank, which by simple external batteries for Smartphones have evolved into small media centres, access point and hub for sharing files among multiple devices simultaneously.

Designed for Apple notebook, the Shuttle’s HUB features a design that fits perfectly with your Macbook, iPhone and company. The Shuttle’s body is made of aluminium alloy, with the brand embossed and illuminated in white.
The brushed effect returns a touch & feel very pleasant, but it’s a nicety that is supported by an excellent technical implementation.
