Satechi’s US$39.99 4-Port USB-C Hub conveniently expands a single USB-C port on a Mac or iPad to four. Which means it’s great for connecting Type-C SSD drives, flash drives, and peripherals.
Most Apple devices come with a dearth of ports. For example, the iPad Pro has just one Thunderbolt/USB 4 port, and the M1 MacBook Pro is only equipped with two. For some folks that will be enough. For others, an accessory such as the Satechi hub is a necessity.
Its four USB-C ports should offer enough expandability for most. The extra ports make it easy to back up, transfer, or copy files to and from your USB-C host device. Operating is a breeze as it’s plug ’n play. And the 4-Port USB-C Hub looks good with Apple devices thanks to its sleek aluminum finish.
