Kingston today announced the availability of the Nucleum 7-in-1 USB Type C Hub, a device that could be of real value to Macbook users who need to expand their system port selection. Providing USB-C, USB-A and HDMI ports, along with SD/microSD card slots, the Nucleum is able to engage all ports at the same, meaning users can power up a Macbook, charge an iPhone and run an external hard drive, simultaneously. Kingston Nucleum is designed to be compatible with all modern USB Type-C and Type-A compatible devices, so keyboards, mice, USB flash drives, wireless receivers and other devices are supported on the Nucleum. Kingston has optimized the Nucleum to reduce EMI interference with local wireless devices, making it suitable for use around wireless networks and in other environments where interference is a concern. The port placement of the Kingston Nucleum Hub also ensures that plugs won’t run into each other, or that devices like USB receivers won’t interfere with each other.
Kingston has done a solid job of getting the Nucleum looking like it belongs with the Macbook, with a sleek, black and silver styling that is reminiscent of the legendary Apple laptop.
“The demand for accessories to complement more host devices using Type C connectors is growing,” said Lawrence Yang, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. “The idea behind Nucleum was to create a portable, easy to use and ‘all-in-one’ hub giving customers a wellrounded product that fits their on-the-go needs. We believe this is the one accessory you need to take with you everywhere.”
Kingston Nucleum is available in the United States now and will expand to the United Kingdom and select countries in the Asia-Pacific region later in Q1. It is backed by a two-year warranty, free live technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information visit the Kingston Nucleum product page.
