So what is it all about. It measures 6 inches in height which is around 15 centimeters. You connect it to your USB port and it will give your 4 ports instead. Especially handy if you just have one single USB connection available on your computer and therefore need to change you cables over and over again. Connect your USB powered devise and R2 will respond with one of his typical sounds. For those working in a quiet office you have the possibility to switch these sounds off to keep things quiet. It works on both a PC and a Mac. 2 USB ports are integrated on the front and 2 on the back.

We consider the UK price very acceptable for this pretty awesome product. Some people experienced that they cannot use all 4 ports simultaneously when connecting more powerful gear like external harddrives. But you should be very fine if your goal is to charge your smartphone, tablet or digital camera.
