This Gold Brick is a Thanko USB Hub

Thanko GOLDHB01 USB 2.0 Hub

It looks like a gold ingot, it’s painted gold and it’s quite heavy at 2.5kg. The Thanko GOLDHB01 USB 2.0 hub was made purposely heavy to provide stability and make it easy to plug and unplug USB devices.

It has a total of 9 ports, 1 upstream and 8 downstream; and it has an auxiliary DC power input terminal in case you need stable power supply when plugging in multiple USB devices.

It measures 196×73×49mm (gold this big would be 13.5kg in weight…) and retails for about $50 (…and would be worth $276,000).
