HyperDrive – World’s Most Compact and Fastest USB-C Hub for your MacBook Pro

HyperDrive Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub MacBook Pro

HyperDrive is world’s most compact, fastest 50GB/second Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub for MacBook Pro. It is 10X faster (50Gb/s), unlike most USB-C dongles which still run on slow USB 3.0 (5Gb/s) speed. It does that by using not just one but two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C connections. Other Thunderbolt 3 docks available in the market are as big as a brick and nowhere as portable as the HyperDrive.

Gain More Bandwidth

HyperDrive is the first and only hub designed to feature two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports for the MacBook Pro for a maximum bandwidth. It delivers more ports in the smallest footprint. The HyperDrive is Thunderbolt 3-enabled and supports only the new MacBook Pro. You can easily connect to two of the MacBook Pro’s USB-C ports simultaneously.

Colors to Match your MacBook Pro

The HyperDrive is crafted out of aluminum, and comes in two colors: Space Gray or Silver, so as to match the two available colors of the 2016 MacBook Pro. It is designed to feel like an add-on of the 2016 MacBook Pro because of the similar product lines, thickness right-angled edges and rounded corners. It features two USB-C connections sticking out of its side. Even though the device is designed to look best when plugged into the left side of the MacBook Pro, it is possible to turn it around and plug it into the right side of a MacBook Pro featuring four USB-C ports.

Replace your Dongles with it

It is much more portable, has more features and is made of better materials compared to other dongles available in the market. You would need multiple dongles to achieve what HyperDrive does, at a total cost much higher than HyperDrive. Having multiple dongles means that you now have more items to manage on top of your MacBook Pro, which increases the risk of misplacing them as you move around.

It is designed to be compact enough to stay with your MacBook Pro wherever you go. Stop hanging and juggling with multiple dongles. A single compact HyperDrive does the job of multiple dongles. Dongles never look sleeker than this. Imagine all the dongles you would have to connect whenever you set your MacBook Pro down on the desk at home or at work.

You can keep a HyperDrive connected to all your devices at home or work and simply make a single, quick and easy HyperDrive connection whenever your MacBook Pro is on the desk. It supports hot swapping/plugging so a single HyperDrive connection would instantly connect all your devices already connected to the HyperDrive.

HyperDrive gets you going in an Instant

The company wanted an adapter hub that users can leave on their MacBook Pro as they move around. HyperDrive connects to the MacBook Pro with not one by two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports. Having two input ports also allow you to provide more speed and bandwidth (50Gb/s) to HyperDrive, allowing it to provide as many ports in the tiniest of spaces. It provides 7 ports in total, all of which can be used simultaneously.

Early-bird Pricing

HyperDrive is available at an early-bird pricing of $49 at Kickstarter and will retail later at $99. It can prove to be a smart purchase as it will meet many needs at once.
