Popular Apple accessory maker Satechi today launched a sleek and compact hub that adds a bunch of missing ports to your MacBook Pro (late-2016 model), including two USB 3.0 ports (so you can charge your iOS devices without having to purchase a new cable), an HDMI port with support for 4K video output, a pair of SD/microSD memory card readers and more.
The hub has two Thunderbolt 3 dongles that take up both USB-C ports of the new MacBook Pros with Touch Bar (don’t worry, you also have an additional passthrough Thunderbolt 3 port).
Here’s a quick overview of all the ports on this hub:
- Thunderbolt 3 (1x)—Data transfer speeds up to 40 Gb/s are supported. In addition, the port supports a single 5K display or two 4K external displays at 60Hz with passthrough charging for 13 (61W) and 15-inch (87W) MacBook Pro models
- HDMI (1x)—Video output in 1080p at 60Hz or 4K at 30Hz is supported
- USB 3.0 (2x) and USB-C (1x)—Transfer speeds of up to 5 GB/s are supported
- SD/microSD (1x)—Transfer speeds of up to 104 MB/s are supported

Priced at $100, the aluminum-clad Type-C Pro Hub is compatible with both Touch Bar and non-Touch bar MacBook Pro models. As a bonus, Satechi is offering these in two finishes, Silver and Space Gray, to complement your notebook.
