The 2016 MacBook Pro was introduced as one of the thinnest laptops to hit the market when came out in October. One of the problems with making this device so thin was that Apple had to remove every legacy port to achieve such a slim profile. This left the MacBook Pro with just two to four USB-C connections. So, if you want to connect external devices, you are stuck using a bunch of dongles, which is a pain. Gone is the stress of buying and keeping track of multiple dongles, thanks to the HyperDrive Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub.
This convenient hub helps MacBook owners avoid dongle hell by adding all sorts of ports to the laptop. It offers an SD card, HDMI output, two USB-A ports for USB 3.0 connectivity, a USB-C port and a microSD card reader all in one compact aluminum hub that is not much larger than a pack of gum. In addition, the HyperDrive Thunderbolt provides up to 45Gb/s bandwidth. You can use all seven ports at the same time unlike with other hubs that typically offer much less bandwidth.
The hub comes in both Silver and Space Gray to match the 2016 MacBook Pro. You simply plug it into your MacBook Pro. Once connected, a small blue light will shine to let you know that you are ready to start connecting your devices.
Compared to other hubs on the market right now, the Hyperdrive has more features and is more portable and compact. The Hyperdrive Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub just became available through Hyper’s Kickstarter campaign.
