The new MacBook is pretty great, but lacks all the ports youâre likely used to if you have a MacBook Pro or Air. Thatâs what makes Satechiâs new USB-C hub so wonderful.
Plugging into your USB-C port on the MacBook, Satechiâs hub offers three USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader and a Micro SD card reader. Itâll keep you from daisy-chaining dongles together just to get work done.
What it lacks is a USB-C passthrough. If youâre out of power, youâre out of luck â this one will have to come out until you power your MacBook back up. Thereâs also no Thunderbolt port for hooking your MacBook up to an external monitor or ethernet port if you need a wired internet connection.
Itâs still a good idea, and probably the hub Apple should have thought of when they introduced the MacBook. For $29.99, itâs also not too expensive, and you can color match them to your MacBook.
