4 USB-C Kickstarter Projects

1) Voltus – Mobile power + expansion

Charge your USB-C MacBook anywhere. Connect any device.

What is it?

Voltus = Mobile power + expansion for your MacBook and all your devices: it is simple. But it will change the way you use your devices on the go.

What does it?

Voltus is your MacBook’s mobile power source. At home, Voltus connects your power cord to your MacBook. It’s always charged and ready to go when you are. When you’re away from your desk, Voltus powers your MacBook for up to 13 hours, allowing you to focus on your work instead of hunting for an outlet.

Voltus is as powerful as your MacBook’s wall charger. It uses its high-capacity internal battery to charge your MacBook and two USB devices simultaneously.

Your new MacBook is an engineering marvel- but you can’t use any of your devices with it. Voltus is a high-speed USB 3.0 hub that lets you connect them to your new machine. If you need to connect a coworker’s flash drive or a friend’s camera, Voltus is there to help. It has two high-speed USB 3.0 ports that let you connect and charge any USB device.

  • Flash drives
  • Keyboards and mice
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Cameras
  • Printers
  • Another hub (for even more ports)

2) Hub+ for USB-C

Hub+ for USB-C: Get your MacBook ports back.

Get all the essential ports you need.  Hub+ supports all your devices for work + play. It also charges your laptop. Plug your power cord into the second USB-C port. The white USB-C to USB-C connecting cable comes with the Hub+.

  • 2 USB-C ports
  • 1 SDXC card reader
  • 1 mini DisplayPort (mDP 1.2 video output, 4k displays at 60Hz refresh rate)
  • 3 USB-A 3.0 \ charging ports
  • Built-in lithium ion battery to charge ANY phone

Continue to use the gear that you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on at a fraction of the price for a Hub+.

3) Hydra Dock – 11 Port USB.C Dock

Anybody considering the new Apple MacBook pauses when confronted by that single USB-C port — thinking about just how they would use their favorite accessories with that one port.

What is it?

HydraDock ends that whole line of thinking by giving you ports for anything you may want or need — from displays and networking, to storage and printers and cameras, to keyboards, mice, and trackpads, and more. 11 normal ports — not just one.

Functionality

HydraDock is named after the multi-headed mythological serpent, and expands the single USB-C port on the MacBook into an array of eleven useful ports, including:

  • 3.5mm stereo headphone port
  • Gigabit Ethernet port
  • SDXC card slot
  • Mini DisplayPort (up to 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, w/HDCP)
  • HDMI (up to 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, w/HDCP)
  • USB 3.0 ports
  • USB-C ports (data only, no video)

We put a lot of thought into the HydraDock design, trying to craft exactly the sort of elegant design that Apple would do if they made a multi-port dock.

HydraDock was created from the start to beautifully complement the new MacBook. Its contours and layout are a perfect fit to the rear section of the MacBook. HydraDock acts as a perfect riser stand, gently lifting the rear edge of the MacBook, with subtle dimples in the top of the HydraDock to hold the rear feet of the MacBook.

HydraDock is high pressure injection moulded from durable ABS-C plastic and is internally structured to handle years of service. The USB-C cable is of soft, premium Apple-complementary materials and bright white color.

4) WIK USB to USB C adapter & flash drive

Making your life easier, aluminum USB C adaptor fits on your key ring ensuring you can use every USB device with your new MacBook.

What is it?
