Twelve South is well known for its Apple’s accessories, such as MacBook stands and iPhone chargers, and today the company announced something new: a portable USB-C hub designed to work with the latest MacBook Pros. It’s called the StayGo ($100) and it packs a whole lot of ports in a small package: including three USB-A ports (USB 3.0), two USB-C ports, one 4K HDMI port, one Gigabit Ethernet port, and then separate ports for SD and Micro-SD cards.

The StayGo essentially adds all the ports that most pro-users or photographers need. Unlike most other USB-C hubs, the StayGo also comes with a detachable meter-long cable, meaning its long enough to hide, maybe in a desk drawer, if you don’t want to clutter up your desk.

For $100, it’s not outlandishly expensive compared to other USB-C hubs on the market, either. That said, the one caution to consider is that it can only output 4k video at 30Hz, rather than the preferred 60Hz. This might not be a big deal if you’re using the StayGo with your MacBook Pro while on the road, but if you have an external monitor set up at home — that could be an issue.

The Twelve South StayGo is available now on the company’s website or on Amazon.
