nonda-hub-apple-macbook-1When Apple announced the 12-inch Retina MacBook, one of the most noticeable changes Apple made was by removing all connectivity options, save for the USB-C connector which ultimately helped to keep the size of the laptop down. However this also meant that users were limited to what they could do with the laptop in terms of attaching peripherals.

Heck, wanting to attach an external hard drive means disconnecting it from the power source which does seem a bit silly, but the good news is that the Nonda Hub+ will help alleviate your problems. As you can see in the image above, the Nonda Hub+ is a hub that attaches itself to the computer’s USB-C port. From there users will be able to attach a multitude peripherals to the hub.

The device will come with 3 USB-A ports, two USB-C ports, a mini display port, a built-in SDXC card reader, and it can even double up as an external battery sized at 400mAh to charge your phone. Granted it’s a tad small but the overall device is slim so you could slip it into your back or pocket to act as a backup charger in case of emergency.

It’s actually a pretty clever idea and if you wanted the mobility of the new MacBook but still can’t get over losing all your ports, hopefully the Nonda Hub+ will help you with that. The device is currently a Kickstarter project that has exceeded its original goal almost five times over at this time of writing, so if you’d like to pledge your support or learn more, hit up its project page for the details.
