Both the current MacBook and the MacBook Pro are known to have a headphone jack only via USB-C interfaces to connect peripherals. Especially the ultra-slim MacBook is very limited here. With Kingston Digital’s new USB-C hub, the problem can be solved quickly and easily. The nucleus has seven interfaces that cover a wide variety of standards. So it stands out with additional USB-C and USB-A ports with an HDMI port and an SD / microSD card slot.
The arrangement of the interfaces is simply designed so that all seven interfaces can be used at the same time, without another (partially) obscuring it. So you can, for example, run an additional monitor, incidentally connect an external hard drive and also load your iPhone. The following ports are available:
- USB-C 3.1 Gen. 1 (power connection for up to 60 W)
- USB-C 3.1 Gen. 1 (data, up to 5 GB / s)
- USB-A (2x)
- HDMI v1.4 with 4K support
- SD card reader (SD / SDHC / SDXC UHS I-II)
- microSD card reader (microSD / microSDHC / microSDXC UHS-I)
The Nucleum 7-in-1 Type C USB Hub can now be purchased for a price of 65.99 euros from the manufacturer Kingston Digital.
