Are 49 Ports On A USB Hub Enough?

Are 49 Ports On A USB Hub Enough?

49-port-hub

Like cupholders, you apparently can never have too many ports on a USB hub, although it’s hard to see how you might ever want more than the 49 that Brando is offering. We imagine this monstrosity is aimed at IT departments who might have to charge the entire office’s inventory of phones or tablets or anything else USB-charged. It’s capable of reliably outputting 0.5A-1.5A at each port without overheating or becoming a fire hazard; you will have to purchase your own ATX power supply for it however, and it’s recommended that you get a 60A 5V supply if you hope to output 1.2A to each of the 49 ports simultaneously. And even though it is totally meant for a commercial/industrial use, at $174 it’s not entirely out of range for the home consumer.
