New Satechi Type-C Pro Hub for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros offers connectivity in a slim package


I recently sold my 13″ MacBook Pro to a friend at work after having purchased a refurbed 12″ MacBook. You might think that’s a step in the wrong direction going from the powerful MBP to a slower MB. But I absolutely love the MB because it’s small, lightweight, and does everything I need in a featherweight form factor.

But… isn’t there always a but? The 12″ MacBook only has one Type-C port. So I’ve been looking for a perfect Type-C hub to use with it. Unfortunately, the new Satechi Type-C Pro Hub is designed for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros, which won’t work for mine, but if you have a 13″ or 15″ MBP, click through to learn more.

The Satechi Type-C Pro Hub plugs directly into the MBP on either the left or right side and offers 7 ports that include:

1 Thunderbolt 3 port that offers pass-through charging
1 4k HDMI port that offers 1080p high-resolution video at 60Hz to external 4k monitor screens
1 USB-C port
2 USB 3.0 ports
1 SD card reader
1 Micro SD card reader

The Type-C Pro Hub is available now Silver or Space Gray for $99.99 at Satechi.net and Amazon.

    Would it work with your 12″ MB if you cut off one of the male USB-C? 😉

      Ha! I’m not sure what would break if you did cut one of the Type-C connectors off. I’m sure it’s there for some important reason.
