Father's Day gift idea, atolla usb hub

 

As Father's Day is approaching. (It is this Sunday, June 16!), it is a good idea to send out a gift to express your love and gratitude for the hero of your life.  Here are some wonderful gift ideas our editor has handpicked from the atolla collections. Browse through and see what fits best for your dad. 

 

Why USB HUB is a good idea?

Simply put, that's because the laptop is getting thinner ever than before. For the ultra portability, laptop manufacturers have to minimize the connecting ports as best as they can.  So, "not enough USB ports" is the embarrassment we consumers have to face from time to time.  Here, a USB hub is the one comes to save. 

 

Which USB HUB is the right one to choose from?

Scenario 1: 

What computer your father is using now? The one with the rectangle USB port (see picture below)? Or technically speaking, the Type-A port.

Then, a great USB hub would help save the trouble of bending over to plug in USB accessories. 

Even better is a USB hub with an individual on/off switch for each port. Thus, no more hassle with the unplugging. One simple press and you are good to go. 

 

Here are some good options:

atolla USB 3.0 Hub with individual on/off button (204)

4-Port USB 3.0 HUB 204

4 Port USB 3.0 Ultra Slim Data Hub (1103)

4 Port USB 3.0 Ultra Slim Data Hub (1103)

 

Scenario 2:

Now, consider what else this USB hub can do for your dad? Yes, most people would use the USB hub to charge their iPhone, iPads & more. For that purpose, you may need a Powered USB hub. Without the AC adapter, the only source the USB hub to draw power from is the connected computer, and it is not enough for charging though. So you need to look closer and pick the one with AC adapter, or the "Powered USB hub" as they called it.

 

Here are some good choices for you:

Powered 4-port USB 3.0 Hub (204-WX)

Powered 4-port USB 3.0 Hub (204-WX)

Scenario 3: 

So your dad is using the laptop with the round USB port only? Well, this is the USB C port as they call it.

They are getting easier to see with laptops from all brands, like Apple, Chromebook, Levono, Microsoft, etc. USB C technology is more powerful. With one single port, you can get really faster charging, video 4K streaming to a bigger screen, wiring to a stable network, and more. And atolla help to realize them literally at the same time with these USB C adapters:

7 in 1 USB C Hub USB 3.1 Dock Station (C4)

Scenario 4:

But what you really want your dad to enjoy is one afternoon with 4K movies or TV shows from Netflix? 

Then the atolla HDMI collections are probably your best place to go:

BAUIHR 3x1 HDMI Switch (H2)

Conclusion:

What is the most suitable one all depends on what computer your dad is using and what scenario of using the hub would be?
