New Kanex DualRole USB 3 Solution Combines High Speed Hub and Gigabit Adapter Making for an Ideal Travel Companion

BREA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Kanex®, a leader of innovative Apple® and iOS connectivity solutions for homes and businesses worldwide, today announced DualRole™, a USB 3 Hub and Gigabit Adapter all in one solution. The hub portion uses the latest SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard for fast transfer speeds between devices and your computer. It has three extra USB 3 ports which enable users to connect more USB 3 devices such as hard drives, digital cameras, MP3 players and more. The Gigabit Ethernet adapter adds a Gigabit port to your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro with Retina display or any other USB 3 enabled computer and provides a fast and secure wired connection without hassle of Wi-Fi setup.

"We designed DualRole with MacBook travelers in mind," said Kelvin Yan, president of Kanex. "We know when on the road sometimes you need an Ethernet connection for Internet or network access or even more USB ports, which is why we combined both a hub and adapter into one small compact solution."

The Kanex DualRole is bus-powered, however for additional power users can plug in a 5V wall power adapter to provide more power to the USB 3 ports. This enables users to connect USB 3 devices that require more power to operate.
