If you are frustrated with the lack of ports on your computer and also annoyed by the chunky brick of a powered USB hub, then HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub may be the answer.

HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub

Billed as the world’s first Thunderbolt 4 hub with an integrated GaN power source, it eliminates the need for bulky power bricks.

HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub offers three downstream ports with 40 Gbps shared downstream data, allowing it to support a single 8K 60 Hz or 4K 144 Hz display, or a dual 6K 60 Hz display on MST-enabled devices. However, a dual display setup is not supported on M1/M2 MacBook.

It has an upstream port that provides 96W powder delivery to keep the host computer juiced. Speaking of charging, the three downstream ports each offer up to 15 W of power to power downstream devices, such as an eGPU to boost the graphics performance, or charging devices like your iPhone.

In addition to playing well with MacBook, it also works with PCs and iPad Pros. For folks who need more ports, you can daisy chain two HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hubs to get a total of 5 downstream ports with full Thunderbolt 4 bandwidth.

You can learn more about the new HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub over at its Kickstarter campaign page where you can also pledge for a unit at an early bird special price of US$179 (U.P. US$299.99). There is a catch though. It is only available to backers residing in the U.S.
