USB-C Multihub for Apple MacBook now available in UK for £20.99
NOTE: A reader, Gavin, has pointed out that this item is in fact the older model without a USB-C power-in port. This explains the price. While it will still work bear in mind that you will be restricted to battery power when using peripherals. This is a criticism levelled at all earlier USB-C devices. My apologies for the confusion.
Yesterday I wrote about a new multi-port USB-C adapter with power-through for the Apple MacBook Air. There's a big pent-up demand for such a device, particularly among photographers who want quick access to an SD-card slot. Today I learned that the device is now available under a different branding, that of the well-established accessory company Satechi. The new version, with USB-C port, is available from Amazon in the USA for $39.99.
The earlier Satechi hub (without the USB-C power-through) is now available in the UK for a reasonable £20.99. But bear in mind there is no power-in USB port so you will be stuck with battery power when using peripherals. No doubt the new model will arrive at Amazon UK soon, so keep your eye open.
If you buy the old version using this link a miniscule commission will come to MacFilos so thank you in advance for supporting the site.
