Satechi Stories January 9

Straight from CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Satechi is revealing its new Smart Dual Charging Station for Apple gear. Satechi has become well-known for quality accessories at a somewhat affordable price tag and its new charging solution is no exception. While it might not be as groundbreaking as we would have hoped for, the sleek looking dual charger is ready for prime time this year and its semi-modular design can accommodate iPhone, Apple Watch, Apple Pencil and more… expand full story

Just this morning Apple refreshed its 12-inch MacBook with a faster processor and improved battery life. Whether you’re springing for the new models released today or going refurbished, you’ll likely need a few key accessories to round out your setup. While the MacBook has an attractive thin design, it comes at the cost of a single USB-C port. Additionally, it can be a tough sell as an everyday machine without some external input devices. Head below for a roundup of some of our favorite accessories for the 12-inch MacBook.

Satechi Stories January 6, 2016

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.

Satechi Type-C Card Reader

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

In late 2012 Apple released a super slim unibody iMac. Its tapered 5mm design is simply an engineering feat and is most definitely worth gawking at. The front is free from ports, which creates an ultra clean look, but comes at the expense of functionality. It’s a first world problem, I know, but it can be a real nuisance having to crane your neck to plug in a USB cable. Luckily a couple accessory makers have tackled this issue by moving the iMac’s USB ports to its front panel.

One deal we’re currently featuring solves this problem for just $6.17 Prime shipped, while another new product adds even more functionality but at a higher price point… expand full story

Satechi has released a pair of new wireless keyboards with support for up to five different Bluetooth devices. This California-based company went along with traditional stereotypes and made the Mac/iOS version silver with white keys and the PC/Android version black with black keys.

Either keyboard can technically be used with any device that supports Bluetooth keyboards, but you’ll want to pair them up with the types of devices they were intended for to take advantage of the OS-specific keys. For example, the Mac/iOS version features lock button, home button, and spotlight search keys for iDevices.

At just 0.7-inches thick, it is pretty much the same size as the standard Apple keyboard. But the Satechi’s killer feature is the ability to be synced with up to five unique Bluetooth accessories at any given time. That means you can seamlessly go from typing on your Mac to your iPad, to your iPhone, to your Apple TV, to your — never mind, I’m sure you get the idea. I have the Logitech K811 backlit keyboard and although it only syncs with three devices, I find this feature absolutely invaluable after using it for a few short months.

Unfortunately, just like the Apple keyboard, you’ll have to supply two (AAA) batteries to power it. We recommend picking up a pack of eneloop or AmazonBasics rechargeable batteries to save yourself a few bucks and headaches down the road.

The Satechi Bluetooth Wireless Smart Keyboard is now available for $54.99 at Amazon.
