Satechi Launches New USB-C Headphone Jack Adapter and 100W USB-C Charging Cable

Satechi, known for its line of accessories for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, today announced the launch of two new USB-C accessories designed for Macs and iPads.

The Type-C Headphone Jack Adapter plugs into the USB-C port on an iPad to allow iPad users to listen to music using standard headphones with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The adapter features USB-C Power Delivery so listening to music while charging is possible.


Satechi's Type-C Headphone Jack Adapter comes in Space Gray aluminum that matches the Space Gray iPad, and it is available for $24.99 from Satechi's website or from Amazon starting today.


Satechi is also introducing a new 100W USB-C charging cable, which is ideal for use with any USB-C laptop or device. The cable features reversible USB-C connectors on each side with Power Delivery support and data transfer at speeds of up to 480Mb/s.


The cable is made from a durable, braided nylon material that's designed to protect against breakage, while an integrated velcro strap keeps excess cable wrapped up. Satechi's 100W USB-C cable is available from the Satechi website or from Amazon.com for $19.99.

I still can’t find a good reason (from the consumer’s point of view) for Apple to remove the headphone jack from the iPad pro. Just ridiculous.

So it's USB 2.0 with USB-C connectors? Why would I buy this when I can buy a similar cable for a similar or (substantially in some cases) cheaper price that supports USB 3.x speeds?

There's a good reason: Apple wants to suck every penny out of you.

It wouldnt fit into the 5.9 mm thick ipad. There is not enough room under the display. Older ipads didnt have that problem because of their enormous bezels.

This is a lie. Samsung is capable of having a headphone jack without bezels.

Why would they add a cable for the USB C on the adapter? Why not just put the USB C on the frame so we can just stick it onto the iPad magnetically.

Saetichi makes quite inferior products. I recommend waiting a while on any new product. I had three of their usb-c hubs before I had one that worked but even then the network feature does not work - just run out of patience.

Also have their keyboard which is super laggy.

Sad because the price is good and the products beautiful..
