The 12 Port USB Hub with 2 Control Switches looks like a miniature power strip but rather than having AC outlets it features 12 USB 2.0 ports.

Two switches on the Hub control the 12 USB ports. Switch 1 (S/W 1) turns power on and off to the first 6 ports on the Hub and a blue LED light indicates when it is active while switch 2 (S/W 2) does the exact same for the last 6 ports. The 12 Port USB Hub is a plug and play device that does not require the installation of any software to use. It’s USB 2.0 compliant with transfer rates up to 480 Mbps and is compatible with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7, Mac OS 8, Linux 2.4 and above. Read more.
