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. expand full story
