The USB Hub with a built-in flashlight

by Ally

I keep going through all the dozens of reasons that this could be useful, but then I end up canceling them out for one reason or another.  I thought it might be great to sit at your computer and then the flashlight would be useful for when you’re playing with cords at the back of your computer.  However, I can’t remember a time when I couldn’t feel my way around it to figure things out.  I’m sure that someone could find a use for this flashlight meets USB hub though.

If you are female and for some reason like to carry around a hub with you, then you’d always have a flashlight handy for various tasks.  The hub conveniently tucks into the hub itself when it’s not in use.  You can hold it as either a flashlight, or it flips open to be used as a reading light.  The LED light is rechargeable, so it doesn’t have to be plugged in to work.  The hub itself has a total of 3 USB ports.  You can purchase it for $14 from Gadget4all.

Is it possible to replace keys on the computer board with some that will illuminate in the dark? It would help a lot of us elderly folks.
