Are there plans to bring an American version of the Power Hub to the states?

With a tanos sys 2 or Sys 3, a twelve gauge extension, some electrical boxes and 12 gauge wiring, and some bolting hardware (most of which you might have laying around your house), you can build your own much better one. Note the inlet plug for "power in" on my version.

@Alec Buscemi is your homegrown power hub actually grounded?  Don't take this as criticism, but using the Festool cord as the power input there is no electrical ground, but your outlets appear to be three pronged (hot, neutral, ground).

I'd recommend something like this which is grounded (doesn't have to be this one):

Hubbell 15a power inlet
