Ah, the sleekness of the current laptop computer. The lack of ports is certainly nice to look at, but gets frustrating when you need to plug in a monitor, access an SD card, listen to wired headphones, or send stuff to a USB printer. Luckily accessory companies like Hyper are coming to the rescue with hubs that still manage to sport the same dialed-in sleekness that the portless computers are going for, while letting you actually get stuff done.
Like the name suggests, the HyperDrive GEN2 6-in-1 USB-C Hub plugs into your USB-C laptop (or mobile device) and grants the ability to connect six different ways: HDMI, USB-A, SD card, mini SD, and 35.mm audio. There’s a USB-C power-through port as well, so you can supply power to your laptop as you work. As an improvement on first generation hubs this offers twice the video refresh rate, transfer rate, and power delivery speed.
Super compact and appropriately styled with space-age good looks, the HyperDrive will give your workstation the connectivity that lets you take care of business — unlimited by port minimalism.
