In the non-computer world, splitters are very common. Extension cords and power strips are in nearly every modern home. Both of these devices will split a single outlet to multiple devices. Cable splitters are also in many homes, allowing a single coaxial cable to provide cable television to multiple sets. Some systems may even use an A/B box, a device that connects multiple sets of devices to the same system, but switches between them by flipping between the A or B mode.

These devices are all doing the same basic job that a port expander does. The expander will connect to a single spot, but have multiple connections for devices. They go by several names, such as switch, hub or splitter, but they all do the same thing. Expanders are made for nearly every type of port, but the most common household versions are for universal serial bus (USB) and Ethernet ports.<ref>{{cite web|title=what is a port expander?|url=http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-port-expander.htm}}</ref>
