Why would you buy something that you do not know what it is for?

It would seam to me that it is an AC power converter to DC with USB conectors. You can therefore say, charge up the battery of a USB device from a mains socket. (Not have to connect the USB device to your computer.)

sounds to me like you have a usb devices power supply/charger that doesn't need to connect the pc

ie like my mobile phone can be charged via the usb ports on my pc or maybe an mp3 player sounds like your device takes that away from the pc
