While USB-C is the port of the future, surely to replace all other connection ports on everything from laptops to mobile phones, it is not so widely available as of today. So the worse problem that is faced if you have a USB-C laptop is finding adequate connectivity for your existing devices. Thankfully, Satechi’s new USB-C hub has that problem sorted out for you.
The biggest advantage of USB-C is that one can literally connect many devices through a single port. This one port can be used to power devices (to and fro) while also use the same connection to transfer data and files. The biggest gripe with the new Apple ultraportable Macbook 12-inch is that it has only one USB-C port, meaning you can either charge your laptop or connect a device like the iPhone to it.
The Satechi USB-C hub hosts full three USB 3.0 ports while also having a microSD card slot and one full size SD card slot. This means that at the same time, one can connect a camera, a phone while the final port can be used to charge the laptop. And with its sleek styling, the Satechi USB hub is easy to store inside a laptop bag consuming very little space.
While Satechi claims that the USB 3.o to USB-C hub supports every device from the USB-C Google Chromebook Pixel to the Nokia N1 tablet, it is quite clear that the hub is mainly designed to be used with the 12-inch Apple Macbook.
