What you need to know

  • Satechi has announced the new Camp Hub for the new M1 iMac.
  • The new hub adds three USB-A ports, a USB-C port, and a MicroSD/SD Card reader.

Accessory maker Satechi has today announced the new USB-C Clamp Hub, a device that attaches to the front of your M1 iMac and gives you an additional five ports.

Available with color-matched finishes in silver now and blue in the future, this clamp takes a single USB-C port from the back of your computer and gives you five on the front. Those new ports include:

  • Three USB-A ports capable of 5Gbps.
  • One USB-C port capable of 5Gbps.
  • An SD and microSD Card slot capable of 104MB/s transfers.

The USB-C Clamp Hub's easy and simple set up brings frequently used ports up front for convenient access. Simply plug into one of the iMac's backside USB-C ports and use the adjustable knob to fasten the hub to the bottom of a desktop computer - no additional drivers or installation needed. The versatile hub frees up valuable desk space while its sleek design complements Apple accessories.

All of that comes in at $54.99 when you order from Satechi. You can also save an additional 15% if you order before the middle of September when you enter code IMAC15 at checkout.

Looking for more options? These are the best USB-C hubs you're going to find online today, although they're much more traditional options than this one offered by Satechi. They certainly don't come in colors to match your iMac, either.
