Couchlet Adds Two-Port USB Hub To Your Sofa

May 6, 2015

The Couchlet is a $16 USB hub that adds two outlets to the cracks of a sofa (power not included). I imagine seeing a lot of these at yard sales in the coming years. It's slim design and fold-out foot help keep it in place. Possibly enough to justify spending $16 on a USB hub instead of just buying a generic $2 one from the gas station. I've been doing a lot of my shopping at the gas station lately if you couldn't tell. Sometimes they yell at me for taking the nudie magazines out of their plastic wrap, but I pretend like I'm hard of hearing and eventually they leave me alone (but they do ask me to leave as soon as I start ripping pages out). So yeah, a $16 USB hub that sits in the crack of your sofa. It can hang out with all the loose change and popcorn kernels. You know what would be even cooler than a USB hub that hangs out in the crack of your sofa though? A USB hub that hangs out in the crack OF DAT ASS. You'll never be without power! Plus it can just dangle there like a tail and you can pretend you're some sort of cybernetic animal from the future.

Keep going for their promotional video in case the concept went over your head or between your legs.

Thanks to Kat, who just hangs a USB charger over the arm of her sofa like a normal person.

    Or you could just buy a 2 port wall charger with two 6, 10, or 15 foot cords for about $15 total from monoprice.

    I know my ears aren't great but did this guy say he was a "lifelong dementor"?

    Soooo..... I've been doing this for years... with a USB extension cable.

    This is just a 2 port USB hub, it does not even have power. What a POS. Without power this is a joke.

  • Ozolz .

    Did you even read or watch the clip? It has power you illiterate inbred hick

    "6 foot USB cable so you can place it where you need it"

    I believe "Michael Brennan" is asking "is there an external power source or does it only get power via USB?"

    If the answer is "only via USB" then you'll need a 4 amp outlet to do anything better than trickle charge two high end devices (say, iPhone 6 plus and Galaxy Note 3/4/5/whatever's out).

    My Galaxy S5 active came with a 2.1 amp charger. But when you attempt to charge two devices with one 2.1 amp charger you're gonna end up with 1 amp per slot or one device charges and the other doesn't (I guess it depends on internal wiring).

    If you try to charge 2 devices with a 1 amp wall wart then you might have enough juice to maintain current charge level... Maybe.

    That is why the guy is brilliant he'll probably cash out a lot of money with out a lot of effort

    Sure.. until the ports get full of lint and Doritos crumbs.
