With the launch of Apple’s new 2018 MacBook Pro, we take a hands-on look at Hyper’s latest line-up of USB-C hubs for MacBook and MacBook Pro users.
Thanks to our sponsor Hyper, this month 9to5Mac readers can take 10% off site-wide w/ coupon code 9to5macbook. We’re also giving away Apple’s new 2018 MacBook Pro alongside Hyper this month.
Head below for a look a Hyper’s new hubs and a chance to enter our giveaway.
Featured in the video above is Hyper’s latest lineup of HyperDrives including the NET, DUO and PRO models, all of which are designed specifically for Apple’s new MacBook Pro. These make up the latest in the company’s lineup of USB-C hubs after originally raising over $3.1M on Kickstarter and Indiegogo for the original HyperDrive.
What sets the HyperDrive models apart from the competition is its ability to support Power Delivery Pass Through Charging through both its USB-C ports. This means you can charge and use your Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port simultaneously, while the knock offs only support charging through the Thunderbolt 3 port.
In addition to the models above for MacBook Pro users, the company also has the 7-in-1 SOLO model with a single USB-C connector for support on all MacBook models. It includes HDMI, USB-C with Power Delivery, 2 x USB 3.1, microSD, SD, and an audio jack.
Also featured in our video and pictured above is Hyper’s previously introduced USB-C hub with a built-in 7.5W Qi wireless charger for iPhone. The hub turns a single USB-C port on your Mac into 8 ports total including 4K HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, 3 x USB-A 3.0, SD Micro SD, and USB-C 100W Power Delivery.
