HyperDrive Duo Pro is a 7-in-2 USB-C Hub that plugs into the side of a MacBook to add a variety of ports, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB-A and microSD.

It’s designed to not interfere with the new MagSafe 3 power port on the 2021 MacBooks, but the hub is also compatible with any Apple laptop going back to 2016.

Rather than sitting beside or behind the laptop, Hyper’s latest dock props it up.

The HyperJuice 4-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand includes a MagSafe-compatible charger and an Apple Watch charger. In its base are two more charging pads for AirPods and/or another phone.

Plus, Sanho’s stand offers a couple of tricks. It can fold flat to go into a backpack or suitcase. And it can get power from either USB-C or a DC charger.

The Sanho HyperDrive USB-C 6-in-1 Hub clips to an iPad and adds a collection of ports, allowing the tablet to make use of a variety of popular accessories, from mice and headphones to external displays. The multiport adapter offers outstanding functionality in minimal space.

The original version is one of the best iPad accessories ever. I tested the followup and it’s even better.

The Sanho HyperJuice Magnetic Wireless Battery Pack magnetically clings to the back of an iPhone 12 series model, recharging it without wires, clips… anything else. It packs 5000mAh of power and a USB-C port too.

I put the MagSafe-like battery pack through real-world testing. Here’s what’s I found.

Sanho’s HyperJuice wall charger that debuted Monday isn’t much bigger than a credit card but still has room for a pair of USB-C ports that can put out 100W, dual USB-A ports that max out at 18W, and swappable power prongs.

It uses Gallium Nitride (GaN), a new semiconductor material that’s more efficient than traditional silicon used in current chargers. It lets Sanho create this ultra-portable wall charger.

Sanho’s new HyperDrive GEN2 multiport hub doubles the data transfer speed, doubles the amount of power delivered, and doubles the video refresh rate compared to its predecessor.

And this USB-C hub truly takes the term “multi-port” to heart — there are versions with 6 ports, 12 ports and 18 ports.

It’s on Kickstarter now, available for well below the eventual regular price.

USB-C hubs with a profusion of ports are hot now, but Sanho’s HyperDrive Power is far sleeker than any of its rivals. And it doesn’t sacrifice connectivity options for its svelte profile, offering a trio of USB-A ports, dual memory card readers, HDMI, a headphone jack and even Ethernet.

Our review involved testing all nine ports, which took a while. Read on to see if the HyperDrive Power deserves a place in your gear bag.
