Kingston has launched a 7-in-1 Type C USB hub at the CES 2018 event, which is happening in Las Vegas. Named as Nucleum, the small gadget provides USB-C and USB-A ports as well as HDMI and SD/microSD card slots. So, with its multiple ports, the Nucleum is able to handle all the accessories that a consumer may have, for instance, the mice, keyboard, and even a monitor.
Nucleum is a productive gadget that can power up MacBook while also running an external hard drive and charging an iPhone simultaneously.
Kingston claims that the Nucleum mitigates the EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) due to its unique port placement. The company has placed the shielding on the USB ports and the layout for both USB Type A and C are opposite to each other instead of side by side. The EMI can occur between the USB 3.0 ports and WiFi devices such as the routers and wireless mice and keyboards but the Nucleum can overcome this issue.
Nucleum lets you connect all the devices at once, you can plug everything in. It’s portable and weighs only 92.4g. You don’t need to carry multiple dongles to connect your devices.
Nucleum is available in the US and will arrive in the UK and select countries in the Asia-Pacific later in Q1. Price details are yet to be known.
