USB-C Hubs often feel like a dime a dozen commodity accessory. There are plenty of cheap ones (in more ways than one) to be found at places like Amazon and eBay. I’ve used a few such accessories over the last few years, and you can usually tell how poor the quality is within a few hours. Whether it runs blazing hot or works inconsistently, they tend to be worth what you paid for them, and not in a good way.
I remember hearing about the new HyperDrive from HYPER when it hit Kickstarter last December, after the iPad Pro came out. I wrote about it after backing it, but by the time I had, the Kickstarter had ended and they moved over to an Indigogo campaign that is still going. While pretty much any USB-C hub will work with Apple’s new high-end tablet, this was the first one specifically designed for the new hardware. That made it worth checking out to me.
