Vampires don’t just inhabit the night and your AC power strips. They come in USB flavors, too, and so far only Buffalo seems to be doing anything about them and their wasteful ways, introducing the charmingly-named BSH4A02 four-port USB hub. It sports one switch per plug, making it easy for you to put a stake in your smartphone’s battery maintenance cycle, comes in three colors, hits Japan this October for ¥3,885 (about $40), and includes an AC adapter to power itself — making us wonder if this thing doesn’t have a bit of the undead in it as well. Perhaps Buffalo will call it “Blade” and give it some cool sunglasses before a US release.
