Satechi Debuts USB-C Multi-Port Adapter With 7 Ports

Satechi today announced the launch of its new USB-C Slim Multi-Port with Ethernet Adapter, designed for Apple's Macs and other USB-C machines.

The adapter, which is designed to be slim and portable, features a Gigabit Ethernet port, an HDMI port, a 60W USB-C port for charging, two USB-A ports, and micro/SD card readers.


Satechi says the added Gigabit Ethernet port is useful when working in spotty WiFi areas, while the HDMI port lets people use any HDMI-enabled monitor while on the go. It supports video output up to 4K at 30Hz.


Like many Satechi products, the new adapter comes in Black, Silver, or Space Gray to match Apple's lineup of devices.


The USB-C Multi-Port Adapter can be purchased from the Satechi website or from Amazon for $80.

I get that it’s a press photo, but what kind of psychopath would put the laptop in front of the display like that?

That’s a nice display. What brand is it? Or is it just a mock-up?


I ran the "Enhance!" function for you:



Could be very well this one? https://www.lg.com/hk_en/21-9-ultrawide-monitor

$80 seems oddly high, these sort of things go for more like $25-40 on Amazon

This adapter can’t possibly exist, and there must be a typo in that $80 price.

I’ve got it from the usual, reliable sources here on MR forums that the purchase of a USB-C MacBook Pro also requires you to buy hundreds of dollars worth of something called “dongles”. Also necessary, the purchase of a suitcase to carry those “dongles”.

2015 MBP was too thick?

You tell me. Maybe too thin. The highly acclaimed and much revered 2015 MBP needed an adapter for Ethernet.

In any case, Apple thinks the internal space consumed by all those ports could be better used filled with battery. You might disagree, and that’s fine.

Apple seems to think run time is more important than having ports that most will never use on the go. Not necessarily true for you, but Apple has to consider the needs of all.

If you don't think ahead and buy a screen that's almost as wide as your desk, you're going to suffer the consequences

Just to be clear. I am not arguing with you. Nothing negative. But if I am nit mistaken, many-many people find it problematic. I just do not remember the time when it was the need to carry all these dongles. I have great headphones and also need a dongle to use them with an iPhone. Seriously crazy.

I hear ya. Some people find it convenient to leave the adapter connected to the headphones.

The last time I never carried any kind of adapters with me was... never. None of my devices have ever had enough ports or all of the right ports to allow me to never have to deal with adapters and dongles. Even my G4 Ti Powerbook had a couple of dongles. I needed one for the DVI out and a USB-A splitter for all of my devices.

I still run into situations when I need to plug into a VGA projector. Having an HDMI out port isn't going to help me in that situation. The 2015 MBP might have an SD card slot, but it's a slower old tech SD card slot. If you have UHS-II or even XQD cards and you want to make use of their speed, you're gonna need... a dongle or otherwise known as card readers before people started the annoying habit of calling all of their peripherals dongles.

If you don't need Gigabit Ethernet, the Keychron T10 hub is a better deal ($40+shipping directly from Keychron or $50 from Amazon.com).

The Keychron hub has 100Mbps Ethernet, four USB-3.0 ports and a VGA port in addition to all of the ports in this Satechi.

I would love an USB-C to multiple USB-C port hub, but it must still be too expensive or impossible.

It has been years since USB-C debuted, I expected them to be available by now.
