Review: Kingston Nucleum 7-in-1 USB-C Hub

If you recently bought a Macbook or a Macbook Pro, chances are you will be struggling with the lack of ports. For instance, the new Macbook only has two USB Type-C ports on it. I mean, what’s up with that? What’s a guy to do with just two Type-C ports? Fortunately, Kingston may have a solution for that, the Kingston Nucleum 7-in-1 USB hub. And today, we’re going to find out how good it is.

The Nucleum seems like a device made with exactly this problem in mind, thanks to its plethora of ports. It’s small and light enough that you can easily carry it in your bag, maybe even your pocket (if you have big enough pockets, that is). It comes with a simplistic, classy aluminium finish with a minimal Nucleum logo. It connects to your laptop via a convenient USB Type-C cable and from there, you can pretty much plug in whatever device you feel like.

The port options more on the generous side, with a total of 7 ports to take care of all your needs. There are two USB Type-A ports, two USB Type-C ports, one MicroSD slot, one SD slot and one full size HDMI port. One of the Type-C ports is a power delivery port, so you can plug in your charger to make sure your Macbook doesn’t run out of juice. It can deliver up to 60W of power, which makes it more than sufficient to charge the Macbook or the 13-inch Macbook Pro. The USB ports support passthrough charging, so you can easily plug your phones in the hub to charge them. The full HDMI port supports upto 4K video passthrough. However, it’s not HDMI 2 so you won’t be able to do 4K at 60 Hz, but 1080p is not a problem at all.

The Nucleum is bound to make your life much easier as a one stop solution to all your port needs. You can use all 7 ports at the same time without any issues, and it doesn’t require any external power source to run. With Apple and other Ultrabook manufacturers leaning towards less and less ports in their devices, the Nucleum becomes an essential accessory to have.

Moreover, the compact size and lightness makes it an ideal companion for photographers and creators who travel a lot and need to have highly portable devices. It can easily fit in a small bag, and you can use it at your desk without cluttering up your table. However, one thing that could’ve made it more appealing is more USB Type-A ports for when you need to use more than two devices at once. While two ports shouldn’t cause a problem, four, or at least three would be extremely handy for when you need to plug in something like a cooling dock. Another thing I would’ve liked to see is Thunderbolt 3 support, but one step at a time.

If you’ve been apprehensive about buying that shiny new Macbook or an Ultrabook because you think you’re going to need more ports, the Nucleum’s got you covered. It’s an easy product to recommended thanks to its compact design, good looks and available port options. In a world without conventional ports, the utility of USB Hub devices like the Nucleum cannot be overstated.

Kingston Joins InDeed For Earth Edition Awareness Campaign On World Earth Day

Kingston®, a world leader in memory storage products and technology solutions, has joined hands with InDeed to create a unique social awareness campaign called #EarthEditionDrives. This campaign imagines Earth as a USB Flash Drive, where Kingston aims to subtly draw attention towards the condition of our planet.

The campaign revolves around Kingston’s 64GB Limited Earth Edition USB Drive, which represents Earth. Select members from the industry were given a chance to try these USBs to experience it. The question most of them had was: What happens when you plug in Earth?

Immediately the user’s attention would go to the default flash drive icon that has been replaced with the icon of Earth that is filling up with junk. The drive’s title reconfirms this with ‘Clean Up Before Time’s Up’ – a not so subtle warning about how little time we have.

Driving home the point that we are running out of space – a disturbing parallel with real life – the new USB drive is completely full – All 64 GB of it. Opening the drive shows rows upon rows of junk. Except that this version of junk files tell a harsh story of different types of pollution and the garbage it generates.

Mr. Vishal Parekh, Marketing Director, Kingston Technology India says, “We are happy to have partnered with Posterscope for this social initiative on World Earth Day. With this high-octane awareness campaign revolving around our 64GB USB drive, we aim to educate our audiences about the ill effects of neglecting Earth, and to motivate them to take appropriate actions. It’s not just about the shock factor; the true purpose of our Earth Edition drive is to educate and encourage everyone to do their bit; one way is by joining hands with NGOs through a microsite link in the junk videos.”

Mr. Haresh Nayak, Group MD, Posterscope – whose CSR arm Indeed is behind the project – adds, “You have no other choice. Earth Edition forces you to ‘clean up’ this ‘Earth’ in order to use it, subtly telling you to do the same in real life. This is the kind of campaign that really forces you to think about the planet. Everything, right from the messaging on the package, contents and the USB flash drive is crafted in a way that will make you take a good look in the mirror and consider your actions carefully.”

Gurbaksh Singh, Chief Creative Technologist, Dentsu Webchutney adds, “World Earth Day is our big chance to put the spotlight back on our planet. With some modding we have turned the humble Flash Drive into a mouthpiece for saving the planet that warns you at every step. In fact, even transferring a file results in a modified windows prompt that says There’s not enough space left on Earth. Clean Up Before Time’s Up which sums up not just the campaign but the very need to do this.”

By making use of technology in their #EarthEditionDrives campaign, Kingston Technology & InDeed are giving a reality check and making a strong point which every person should consciously remember and act upon. Fittingly, the campaign is called “Earth Edition” as it doesn’t get more ‘limited edition’ than our planet.

So, think about it carefully next time you pollute, is the message Kingston hopes to drive with the campaign.
