Satechi answers the prayers of MacBook owners by adding pass-through charging to its USB-C hub


Today at CES Satechi announced two new essential USB-C accessories geared towards users of Apple’s 12-inch MacBook. Satechi’s updated USB-C Hub includes an integrated pass-through USB-C charging port. That may seem like an obvious feature for this type of mobile accessory, but it’s one that early models from Satechi and many other manufacturers lacked. Now MacBook users don’t have to sacrifice battery life when putting the hub’s two USB 3.0 ports and SD/microSD memory card slots to work. It’s priced at $39.99 on Amazon and is available in Gold, Silver, and Space Gray aluminum to match the finish of your MacBook.

The other new accessory unveiled by Satechi is a USB-C Card Reader with support for SD and micro SD memory cards. It’s ideal for transferring images and video from your DSLR or GoPro action camera while traveling. Both memory card slots are can be used simultaneously. Just like the new USB-C hub, this card reader is also available in Gold, Silver, and Space Gray aluminum. Order it now from Amazon for $19.99.

The new and improved Type-C Hub is here. Still offering everything you loved from our Type-C USB 3.0 Hub, the Pass Through USB Hub now offers a USB-C Port enabling your Macbook 12” to be charged while the adapter is plugged in.

Thanks to the Satechi Type-C Pass Through USB Hub, you can charge your Macbook as well as easily convert a Type-C USB port to two USB 3.0 ports, and SD card slot, and a Micro SD card slot.

The Satechi Type-C Card Reader is the perfect solution for accessing your SD and Micro SD cards. The Type-C Card reader is equipped with both an SD card slot and Micro SD card slot which can be used simultaneously.
