HYPER Announces Immediate Availability for HyperDrive DUO PROPress Release
A Form-Fitting USB-C Hub That Adds 7 Essential Ports to MacBook from 2016-2021 & Beyond
APRIL 19, 2022 - FREMONT, CA - Today, HYPER, the #1 Docking Station Brand in the USA¹, announced the immediate availability of HyperDrive DUO PRO after a successful crowdfunding campaign. DUO PRO is a form-fitting 7-in-2 USB-C Hub for the new 14” & 16” MacBook Pro 2021 and also works with any MacBook from 2016-2020.
HyperDrive DUO PRO is virtually the same size as HyperDrive DUO, the original dual USB-C connector hub designed for the 2016 MacBook Pro five years ago that crowdfunded over $3.1 million and continues to be the most crowdfunded USB-C hub and MacBook accessory today.
HyperDrive DUO PRO adds three essential ports missing in the 2021 MacBook Pro: Gigabit Ethernet, USB-A and MicroSD, as well as HDMI (for dual HDMI display setup for 2021 MacBook Pro), 3.5mm Audio Jack, USB-C Data and a USB/Thunderbolt compatible 40Gbps/100W PD port.
HyperDrive DUO PRO also works with previous MacBook models from 2016 onwards, so MacBook users now have an ultra-compact USB-C hub that works with any MacBook Pro/Air from 2016 to 2021 and beyond.
HyperDrive DUO PRO connects securely to the MacBook via two USB-C connectors and uses a patented magnetic grip design that further secures the USB-C hub onto the MacBook. Remove the grip and the slightly extended USB-C connectors of the HyperDrive will work with most MacBook protective cases. HyperDrive also comes with a USB-C extension cable to work with any USB-C device including iPad, PC, Chromebook and Android.
HyperDrive will retail for $99.99 and is available now at hypershop.com.
