The new USB-C hub is made by Hyperdrive which is not like the usual hubs that we have seen before. Instead of plugging your charger into another Hub, the hyperdrive USB-C hub attaches to the charger without making it a mess or making the wires tangled. It seems similar to TwelveSouth’s PlugBug which can attach to the plug end of Apple MacBookchargers to add USB Type-A ports for charging.
But Hyperdrive goes a step further and made a USB-C Hub Attach which is capable of serving as an active USB-C hub. It will not only provide you the two extra ports for charging but also connect with your computer for the data transferring. Apple too gives an upper hand to these versatile USB ports over the full-size USB ports because USB-C supports nearly every bus format available, but there are still a handful of other devices that ship with the old USB plug.
Most of the devices have also been in the market which tend to use the power port to add a USB port. But this Hyperdrive new USB-C hub uses the power of USB-C. Hyper is making two versions because of the physical design of the Hub Attach. They made a $49.99 model for the 15-inch MacBook Pro’s physically larger, and an 87W USB-C charger which Hyper says can output up to 82W to the USB-C port and up to 12.5W on the USB Type-A plugs.
For the 13-inch MacBook Pro’s 61W charger, there’s a smaller $39.99 model which Hyper promises is capable to deliver up to 58W over USB-C. On the other hand, Hyper is giving 25 percent discount on preordering and the HyperDrive USB-C Hub Attach is all set to ship in early November.
