Vendor Jowua: Center Console Hub for 2021 Model 3/Y

The Tesla Model 3 has a lot of functionality, but the front USB ports are always insufficient because you need to connect your music with a flash drive, play Boombox with a flash drive, and use the USB to charge your mobile phone and tablet fast. Because of the rising trend of gaming in a Tesla, two USB ports are not nearly enough, and finding a helpful USB Hub has become the first accessory needed after vehicle delivery.

Recently, Tesla upgraded its center console design, adding a sliding door and two USB-C charging ports inside. Now located up front in the center console, the ports are in an awkward spot for charging devices.

Responding to the refreshed center console, the Tesla accessories brand Jowua has a newly designed hub, designed with drivers behavior in mind. The Jowua LED Hub has four important selling points: fast charging, data transfer, dynamic power control, and LED light.

Jowua’s 2021 LED Hub is specially designed for the 2021 Model 3/Y refreshed central console and has many innovative features.

The Jowua LED Hub is easy to install – just plug in the two USB-C male ports into the two USB-C ports in the center console.

Features

1. Charging: 27W PD 3.0 fast charging


The Jowua LED Hub has five sets of USB ports in total: 2 X USB-C and 3 X USB-A. With the PD 3.0 fast charging protocol, these two USB-C ports support up to 27W and 18W output individually. When you want to quickly charge mobile phones, tablets, or portable power banks, the two USB-C ports are the best choice. The other USB-A ports are recommended to charge a GoPro, wireless headphones, and other smaller electronic devices.

The dynamic power control of Jowua LED Hub is as follows:

USB-C (No. 1) directly use one Model 3/Y car USB-C current, complete output 27W, not shared by other ports.USB-C (No. 2) and the other three USB-A ports use the other USB-C port’s power, for a total of 27W.USB-C (No. 2) has a full output of 18W, which is not shared by other ports.USB-A (3 ports) supports up to 7.5W output individually. When using the multiple ports together, it shares the 27W with USB-C (No. 2).

Summarizing the above, the Jowua LED Hub can provide a maximum charging output up to 27W + 27W simultaneously. The first USB-C port supports up to 27W full charging speed, and the second USB-C supports up to 18W charging. The remaining 9W can be shared by the other three USB-A ports to charge low-power devices. If the USB-C (18W) is not used, then three USB-A ports will use that power, supporting up to a total of 27 W. Therefore, if there is a need to charge five devices at the same time, the Jowua LED Hub will have absolutely no problem.

2. Data Transfer: Connecting game controllers and music flash drives

There are two important uses for the USB ports in a Tesla beyond charging, which both require data transfer – they need to read a USB stick to play high-resolution music, and read input from Bluetooth dongles to connected wireless game controllers. The five ports included on Jowua’s 2021 LED Hub all support data transfer, and can all do so simultaneously.

3. Dynamic Power Control: Automatic intelligent distribution of available power

People who have used cheap hubs in the early days have encountered the “USB device failure” warning when using all ports. That happens when the USB current is not properly managed, so if too many devices are plugged in, the hub will crash. Jowua has introduced a Dynamic Power Control system from their previous LED Hub, which has an exclusive, built-in chip and controller to automatically distribute the power supply to all devices. Even when all five ports are being used, each charging device will be automatically and dynamically adjusted and optimized to protect both the devices, and importantly, the vehicle.

4. LED Light: No more looking for things in the dark

Following up on Jowua’s previous hub products, the LED light is again present, but with a slightly different design. The LED light is now vertical to illuminate a deeper and wider area. Because the new sliding door design of the refreshed center console, they’ve removed the light sensor on older models, as it would be too easy to activate mistakenly, and replaced it with a simple on/off button, set in a position that is easy to reach by the driver.

Jowua’s center console tray organizer matches perfectly with the 2021 LED Hub, and they’re the ideal combo for the refreshed center console, satisfying storage and charging needs at one time. With the tray organizer, you can charge your devices under the tray and keep your console neat.

The all-new USB Hub console costs $69 and is currently available for order. JOWUA

I like their products. The fact that the other USB hubs remain way down in the bowels, compared to the one Jowua is now selling, and the console tray has a perfect opening for it with a nice soft rubbery texture, compared to the normal hard, slippery black plastic ones sold me.
Also, my previous organizer would keep sliding forward, so when I opened the front console, I always had to pull it back to get stuff. The Jowua tray stays put! It fits better.

No.

People shouldn't have to go to a random forum for support.
1. This is not a random forum.
2. The guy is here as the vendor.
3. He has offered to help with issues.
You know he is here. And yet, you want to ignore him? That makes perfect sense. #eyeroll

im not saying this is their main C.S. line, but it's an option for us Tesla owners. (And this is THE Tesla owners forum, not some unknown, small, niche forum on the dark web, for Christ's sake.)
 
Just got mine today. So far so good.
So having spent almost 24 hours with it, the hub adds some usb support on top of the USB-c. The light is helpful and charging my Apple Watch, hard beats fit pro, and a plugged in controller was super convenient. It goes well with the Jowua organizer.

What I notice is that it’s sensitive to disconnecting from the two USB c ports. A nudge to it when putting your hand into the actual storage can knock it lose. The Jowua organizer is a solid fit about 99.99%. That extra room for error is that at night I can see the glove led bleed through the outline of the organizer.

I’d recommend both products.

Does the light stay on constantly? No option to turn it off?
