The typical MacBook Pro or MacBook Air these days has either two or four external ports. Other laptops may include one or two more, but in this age of interactivity, users routinely find they need more hookups than their laptops can handle.
Between external drives, mice, phones, tablets and everything else that requires a USB connection to operate, charge or both, it isn't uncommon to have a cable snaking its way out of every port — and still leaving a device or devices unattended.
From this dearth of potential hookups, the Casa Hub 10E Modular Hub with Expansion Modules was born, a full-fledged connection extension that allows you to get a whole lot more devices synced, powered up and functioning as part of your mobile work or play station, all at once.
The Casa Hub's core body already features a lot of connection options, including 2 USB 3.1 ports, an HDMI port with 4k@30Hz output, 2 USB-C ports, and a Thunderbolt 3 port. That's a lot on its own, but just in case that doesn't completely fulfill your connectivity needs, the Casa Hub also comes with three additional modules. That increases your capabilities to include an Ethernet port, SD and microSD card readers, as well as an extra USB 3.1 port.
Meanwhile, if you fully utilize Thunderbolt 3 technology, you can actually daisychain up to six Thunderbolt 3 devices together through that lone T3 port. Theoretically, that means you could actually connect up to 10 peripheral devices at once, all through your single Casa Hub. Armed with that kind of firepower, you should have the ability to finish virtually any project and charge virtually any device — and likely still have a port or two open for more.
And all that adaptability doesn't cut into the performance either. In addition to the HDMI, the Thunderbolt 3 port supports 30Gbs data transfers, 8K video output or charging with up to 100 watts of power at a time.
The Casa Hub offers ridiculous flexibility for MacBook users, a device regularly priced at $99, but on sale now for only $79.99.
