Indiegogo project turns MacBook charger into USB hub

Since "always," we are used to recharging our MacBooks by the original out adapter with a white box that plugs into a power outlet and leads a cable to the computer. But what if this little box did a little more than that?

This is the proposal of the Powerup, recently released at Indiegogo by Homey. It has two major advantages over Apple's original adapter: 1) a built-in USB-C cable, and 2) it works as a hub, offering three USB-A ports.

The accessory measures 8.2 × 8.2 × 2.9cm and weighs 210g, that even offering differentials has about the same dimensions as the original. It is proposed that it be sold not only in a traditional white version, but also in a black one.

The project is still in the air for another month at Indiegogo, but it has already hit its initial target of $ 25,000 a lot. He is currently approaching 1,700 supporters, with more than $ 171,000 raised. That is, it must really get out of paper.

If you are interested, you can get one for $ 79, or take a two-for-$ 129 deal (leave one at home and the other at the office).
