The Dr. Bott T3 USB 2.0 hub is a perfect accessory for the MacBook Air, converting its single USB port into three.

T3Hub was the first USB hub to pick up the design of the now legendary PowerBook Titanium from Apple, expanding a single USB port on the computer to 3 ports for additional USB devices.

T3Hub 2.0 continues the tradition - while remaining as small and as useful and as compatible to the USB 2.0 standard. Of course the new model still works perfectly without a power supply, even when used with power-hungry USB devices like USB floppy drives or USB flash drives.

Typically T3Hub will be used when the internal USB connections of the computer no longer satisfy the needs of a growing array of USB peripherals.

T3Hub is currently available in White (MacBook / iBook), and Aluminum (MacBook Pro / PowerBook G4 Aluminum). Clear plastic dust covers can be seen inserted into the empty ports.

In either setup T3Hub plugs directly into the USB connector on the computer. A short USB extension pigtail is provided to reduce strain on the built-in port.
