Power up

Like many folks, we received a few electronic gadgets for Christmas. Gadgets that charge using a USB port.

Sadly, our Mac only has 4 standard USB ports and 3 are permanently taken.

So what is a person to do? We had considered purchasing a hub, with more places to plug in.

But our son suggested upgrading our surge protectors to ones with 2 extra USB hubs already installed. Costco even offered a 3 pack.

We made the switch in record time, and now have the new strips on our computer and TVs, conveniently located for recharging.

Of course, a system is only as good as its users. Case in point, the hubbinator received a fitness recorder that has its USB charger also as part of the watchband. We were worried we got what we paid for when after 3 days plugged in, it still hadn’t charged. Turned out, the hubbinator had pulled out the wrong side, not the USB side. Go ahead and laugh. It’s funny.

Until next time.
