Are you tired of having a bag for computer “things?” Would you rather just carry the essentials? Well, with this Sanho HyperDrive USB-C Hub, you can. Made for the Apple MacBook power adapter (both 61W and 87W models), this hub ditches the traditional hub design, and instead attaches directly to the power adapter. Using the same connector, this hub returns a USB Type-C port and, in addition, provides you with two USB Type-A ones, allowing you to charge and transfer data between devices. While its design is a bit unconventional and caters to people who have the power strip on their desk, it certainly reduces the chance of misplacing the hub.
The Type-A ports adhere to the USB 3.0 (also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1) standard for data transfer speeds of up to 5 Gb/s. Power-wise, the Type-C port can deliver up to 58W, whereas the two Type-A ports offer a combined total of 12.5W. Use it to charge and sync your phone, tablet, storage drive, and any other USB-based peripherals. Sanho has also included a silicon sleeve that fits both the hub and the power adapter to prevent any cosmetic damage.
