For the battery-intensive mobile devices of today, a standard USB hub is not sufficient for charging. Tripp Lite's U280-016-RM 16-Port Charger with Syncing Function is the solution, allowing you to charge up to 16 tablets, phones, or other mobile devices all at the same time. Up to 5V, 2.4A (12 Watts) of power is provided to each port, perfect for charging the most power hungry devices, such as the Apple iPad. In addition to charging, you can sync your devices using their file management software, such as Apple iTunes or Apple Configurator. So whether you're at home or in the office, you no longer need to run around looking for an available outlet, or unplug one device to charge the other, the U280-016-RM provides you with the ports and power you need. To ensure you stay current with technology, a firmware upgrade port is provided for future software upgrades. Constructed of heavy-duty, steel housing. Mounting hardware included for use in a rack installation.
