OctoFire 8 Port USB 3.0 Hub with Rapid Charging (96 Watts)

$115,414

It's a USB 3.0 Hub with lots of power for rapid charging. In-fact it delivers more power than any other Wall Charger currently available in the market. OctoFire-Hub delivers whopping 2.4 Amps per port (12 Watts) of power to rapidly charge your devices. It is built on strong foundations of earlier successful Kickstater project: OctoFire Charger (http://kck.st/1bK6kO7).

OctoFire-Hub acts like a standalone charger when not connected to host/PC/laptop. Intelligent device detection makes it possible to deliver optimal power to any device you connect to it. It has built-in over-heat, over-charge, over-current & over-voltage protection.

It can transfer data at super-speed of USB 3.0 and you can expect upto 5 Gbps speed of data transfer. No more waiting for files to get copied.

The OctoFire Hub design is taken from previous OctoFire design, but we have tried to incorporate the suggestion and feedback of all OctoFire backers. The OctoFire Hub has evolved OctoFire from a simple 8 port charging station facing all directions to a more distinct crescent like USB port for easier access and less space consumption. Other than this aesthetic change, we have also added few technical changes by adding Hub functionality and upgrading charging current from 2.1 Amps to 2.4 Amps per ports.

All of these are just a add-on with major changes in dimensions and specifications making OctoFire Hub our best revelation yet.

Risks and challenges

Today, we have a working final design prototype in our hands. We have been testing them for a couple of months and everything is working as expected. We will now need to transition from our ready to market working prototypes to actual shipping products. We are in constant talks with our component vendors and have secured component supply for production. We have an international partnership with a reputed manufacturer. So, the risk factor has been reduced to logistics and any unforeseen issues on production line. These unforeseen issues may take time to resolve, and can cause delay in delivery. However, we are confident that we will deliver on time. A serious design problem in the product is very unlikely because of the amount of testing that we have already performed on our final samples.
