Hi Belvar,

Thanks for posting. That’s certainly scary.

We saw your reviews that came in at the same time, which have some additional detail:

Devices determine how much power to pull, and a keyboard typically pulls little. So something definitely happened here. One thing to look out for is a frayed cord - that’s the sort of thing that could cause a problem. Can you say where the melting or visible damage is - between computer and hub, or hub and keyboard?

Also, you mentioned in the review you’ve been using the hub for 2 years. Do you have the Amazon order # (if it’s our hub, it will have been emailed back then) – with that, we can look up the detail of timeframe (and thus batch).

Again, my apologies and thanks,
Bernie
