CES 2024: Satechi Debuts Thunderbolt 4 Hub, 145W USB-C Charger and More

Alongside Qi2 wireless charging stands, Apple accessory maker Satechi this week unveiled new hubs and charger options for Apple’s Mac lineup.

The upgraded Stand & Hub for Mac mini and Mac Studio fits under one of Apple’s slim desktop machines, and it includes an NVMe SSD enclosure that supports NVMe and M.2 SATA SSDs. There are USB-C 3.1 and USB-A 3.1 ports for file transfers, with support for speeds up to 10Gb/s.

An SSD added into the hub can be used for Time Machine backups, plus there are also two additional USB-A 3.0 ports, micro/SD card readers, and an audio jack for headphones.

Satechi’s Thunderbolt 4 Slim Hub Pro has three Thunderbolt 4 downstream ports that support data transfers at up to 40GB/s, plus it can deliver up to 15W of power to connected peripherals. It supports up to two 4K displays or one 8K display, and it offers 32Gb/s native PCIe support for external GPUs and Thunderbolt-based SSDs.

The 145W USB-C 4-Port GaN Travel Charger has two USB-C 3.1 ports that can provide up to 140W and two USB-C 3.0 ports that can provide up to 45W. The 145W max power is split between devices when more than one device is plugged in, with the charger providing smart power distribution that automatically adjusts wattage for optimal charging.

All three devices are available today from the Satechi website. The Stand & Hub for Mac mini/Mac Studio is priced at $100, the Thunderbolt 4 Slim Hub Pro is $200, and the 145W Travel Charger is $120. A 20 percent discount is available with the promo code CES20.
