In the market for a Type-C Hub, accessory organizer, power bank and wireless charger for your MacBook Pro and iPad Pro? Of course you are!

The BentoStack PowerHub promises to eliminate desktop clutter with a stackable solution to give you everything you need to use your devices on the go. And it’s all packed into a design inspired by (what else?) a compact Japanese lunch box. Check it out.

The solution is made by Function101, makers of the Apple Accessory Organizer BentoStack. It features 8-ports, connecting SD and Micro SD Cards, HDMI Cable, and 3.5mm audio. There is also support for 2x USB A 3.0 and 2x USB C 3.0 devices. The top of the hub additionally provides magnetic storage for the Apple Pencil 2.

Its integrated 8000 mAh battery provides power in your choice of three ways: USB C Power Delivery, USB A, and certified Qi Wireless Charging. Also providing space for accessories like cables and flash drives, this solution looks pretty darn neat. Both figuratively and literally.

BentoStack: The ultimate Type-C hub

“We believe that the BentoStack PowerHub includes a feature set that is high in demand with today’s Apple Pro Community and will help to expand our customer base to include the most tech savvy Apple enthusiasts,” Matt Cereno, CEO of Function101, said. “We continue to strive to create truly functional products with a minimalistic design that keep our customers organized and productive – on the road and in the workspace!”

As great as it sounds, however, it’s not available just yet. Instead, interested parties can pre-order the item on Indiegogo. Launched today with a funding goal of $25,000, the Early Bird specials begin at $99. That’s 50% off the eventual retail price of the device. While crowdfunding campaigns do carry a degree of risk, shipping is promised for January 2020. Maybe a late holiday gift to yourself?
