This 80-port USB charge board had to come from Thanko

Most of Tokyo-based Thanko’s USB accesories are utterly useless, but I don’t know what to think of their latest creation, a 80-port USB board [JP]. Yes, they put 80 USB ports on one board. You can’t transfer data over the ports but only charge your gadgets though, it’s not a USB hub.

The board is sized at 200×200×19mm and obviously needs to be plugged into a wall socket to work (100V). The picture below shows it with just 40 of the 80 ports used.

I don’t know who’d be interested in owning such a monster, but Geek Stuff 4 U is offering it to people living outside Japan for $208.68 plus shipping (it went on sale in Japan today).
