Smart. Lenovo has managed to stuff four USB ports into the brick of a notebook power adapter. And while notebook adapters with built-in USB charging ports exist already, this one actually turns three of its four ports into a USB hub while reserving the fourth for straightforward charging.

So if you’re looking to plug a bunch of peripherals into your ThinkPad but you don’t want to carry around a dedicated USB hub, the Lenovo Power Hub might be right up your alley.

At $75, it’s not wildly expensive as laptop adapters go. It’d be nice to see a universal version that could work with other notebooks someday, but for now it’s only compatible with 65- and 90-watt ThinkPad models.
