Hyper Debuts New Thunderbolt 4 Hub With Integrated GaN Power Source

Accessory maker Hyper, known for its range of chargers, hubs, and battery packs, recently introduced the HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub, which it says is the world's first Goshen Ridge Thunderbolt 4 hub with an integrated power source.

Available on Kickstarter, the hub includes a built-in GaN power source that alleviates the need for an extra power brick and allows it to operate with a standard power cable, ultimately resulting in a more streamlined setup.

The Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub includes three 40Gbps/15W Thunderbolt 4 downstream ports for data transfer and accessory charging and one 40Gbps/96W power delivery Thunderbolt 4 port, but there are no other included ports. The Thunderbolt 4 ports support dual 4K 60Hz or single 8K 30Hz display connectivity, though dual displays are not compatible with M1 or M2 MacBooks.

The hub works with with the 2016 MacBook Pro or later, the 2018 MacBook Air or later, and the 2021 iPad Pro or later, as well as Windows and ChromeOS devices.

The HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub can be preordered from Kickstarter for $179, a 40 percent discount off of the planned retail price, and it is set to ship out in November 2022.

Sounds interesting but I would not touch a Hyper product with a 10 foot pole. Kickstarter - iffy delivery and no returns. Hyper is horrible with support.

I don't understand how moving the power supply from a brick to inside the casing makes it more expensive. If anything, isn't that fewer parts? maybe a little more cooling required?
Because power bricks are far cheaper due to economies of scale. 95% of docks/hubs on the market today use a reference design from from various companies in Shenzhen. Anker hubs are made by CE-Link. Satechi hubs are by Gopod Group. This Hyper dock is based on a niche design.

Never Hyper. Bought their 100W GAN on KS a while back. Damned thing could’ve manage to charge my phone and iPad at the same time. Sent them a video, they sent replacement, happened with the “new” one… threw it in the bin and haven’t looked back.

I have been burned with no recourse multiple times by Kickstarter projects to the tune of a few hundred bucks.

Whole lotta nope on anything that shows up on that hell-hole site.
