By removing almost all types of inputs and ports used by normal humans from their computers in the name of simplicity and elegance, Apple created a very interesting side effect: the computer market. hubs for MacBooks and MacBooks Pro has never been so powerful, with countless options for all tastes and pockets.
THE Satechi is one of the main manufacturers to ride this wave, and today it is presenting its newest creation for the heated accessories market.
THE Aluminum Type-C Multimedia Adapter it basically brings all the connections that an average user may want, including dual video output (and both work simultaneously) – all of this present in a very elegant aluminum body and matching the design of the Mac. Here we have:
- 3 USB-A 3.0 ports;
- 1 HDMI 4K output (at maximum 30Hz);
- 1 mini DisplayPort 4K output (at maximum 30Hz);
- 1 Gigabit Ethernet input;
- 1 slot for SD cards and 1 for microSD;
- 1 USB-C port for charging the device up to 49W.
As much as the USB-C port on the hub is unable to charge MacBooks Pro at full speed, this is not a problem, considering that Apple “professional” notebooks have more than one type of input – so you can connect the accessory in one and charge the computer in another. The MacBook, which has only one USB-C port, can be loaded at full speed with the accessory.
The new Satechi hub can be purchased in silver or space gray versions and comes out $ 100. It is now available for sale on the Satechi page or on the American Amazon website.
