The Whatgeek Ultra-Smart 5-in-1 TKL Mechanical Keyboard Hub, jointly launched by 3inuS and Whatgeek, recently launched on Kickstarter, and it’s packed with innovative features that cater to Mac users.

The KEBOHUB EE01 is a versatile keyboard hub with five ports, 18 RGB lighting effects, and customizable keycaps and switches.

Its charging capabilities extend to multiple devices, including mice, phones, fans, and power banks. With no latency compared to Bluetooth keyboards, gamers can enjoy a seamless and immersive experience.

Mechanical keyboard hubs should come as a standard

The hub boasts a 5V/5A output and 3 USB-A 3.0 ports for data transfer. Compatible with all USB-A 3.0 and 2.0 products, a single port can provide up to 5V/1.5A output.

The lightning-fast 5Gbps transfer speed means 1GB of data takes only 5 seconds to transfer. The HDMI2.0 port ensures compatibility with 2K, 1080P, and 720P monitors, delivering top-notch visuals to complement its performance.

Users can charge devices through the USB-C and USB-A ports, avoiding the inconvenience of dead batteries. The Type-C connector offers a total output of 1.5A for USB-C1 and USB-A1 ports.
