(Starter Kit) USB-C Accessories for new MacBook Pros!

by birtanpublished on October 28, 2020

hey guys what is going on this is AI Apple geek today I want to share with you guys my USB see starter kit these are things you're gonna need in your life if you just bought a device that uses a USB C connection all of these things are thin and light so that you can pack them away in a bag if you're traveling you're going to work going to school and you need access to some of the older ports that you had on your old computer these are some things that will make the USBC transition a little easier i've also teamed up with anchor who sponsored today's video to bring you

Guys a giveaway and i'll be announcing those details here in a little bit alright so first up on the list is something that i considered to be an absolute must-have is this SanDisk dual USB drive the concept here is very simple you basically pull the slider to reveal a USB a connection and you push the slider the other way and it'll give you a USB C connection it's all the same drive so they're not like different files or anything it's the same USB Drive just with two connections next up if you're looking for a little bit more storage for my professional work photo

Editing video editing on the go you're gonna need an external hard drive this is a solid-state drive from G technology it's got this beautiful design that I'm super in love with this is what made me ultimately get this over the Samsung t5 because I just love this design so much it's super sturdy it's ip67 waterproof and it's drop proof up to like 3 meters or something like that which is about ten feet and I don't know this thing is just so small and compact this device comes with two cables one is USB C 2 USB C and the other one is USB C to USB a that way you can actually use this with

Older hardware that just have the normal USB ports and since it is an SSD it does not sacrifice speed for the size transfer speeds are going to be super quick I'm dragging this 8 gigabyte folder into this SSD and it's taking about 10 seconds to copy completely which is absolutely insane so this coupled with the extraordinary design that I think looks better than the Samsung ones just make this a great all-around travel hard drive so if you're looking for more storage and you don't want one with moving parts that

Can break or fail this is the way to go now let's talk about the giveaway when you get a new device or in your laptop or whatever you're definitely gonna need a backup cable because the Apple ones you know they get frail they fall apart after a little while that is where anchor comes in because anchor makes quality accessories that are actually affordable this cable in particular is USB C to USB C is from their powerline series so it's super tough is not gonna fall apart after a little while it can charge any size MacBook Pro with up to a hundred watts of power delivery it does

Support USB 3.1 gen2 so it supports the full speeds of that SSD I just showed you an anchor is giving away 1000 of these things all you have to do is go to the link down in the description and sign up with your email address the top 100 winners will get to choose between the power line plus and power line plus two nylon braided cables and the other 900 winners will get the PVC cables that you've seen here you will get to choose between USB C micro USB or enlightening so it's super handy Universal with all devices all the rules and details are linked in the description the giveaway

Is available in the US the UK and Germany entries will close on August 14 and the winners will be contacted by email before August 17th so be sure to use a real email so go ahead get all of your entries in right now for your best chance to win all right what if you have existing accessories that you want to use with a new MacBook but they only have USB a well to solve this major first world problem I'd like to recommend this USB a two USBC adapter this is actually from nonde just slap it on your plug and then you slap it into the computer and bang you got USB back

And for those of you wondering yes this does work with Apple's super drive so you can play DVDs with this dongle which you cannot do on USB C hubs alright at this time I just want to quickly warn you guys against this product the hyper drive this was actually a highly anticipated drive I think the concept here is actually very very art and a great great design so if you don't want to have a dongle hanging out of your computer this is actually the way to go however I just want to warn you guys against this

Because for me it hasn't really worked out first of all the build quality is pretty sturdy so you think that it would hold in your connections while you are working with your computer and your peripherals however time and time again when I use this thing more often than not everything kind of just disconnects if something even just slightly bumps the side of my computer it also kind of feels like it could snap off at any time if you ask me I would recommend to you one of this design and yes this is from Ankur although I did buy this one myself this is not a side mount design this

Uses a USBC cable to connect your computer to the hub what's great about this over the hyper drive voice for me is when I go to remove one of the things plugged in it doesn't disconnect the other things from my computer which happens all the time with the hyper drive and I just can't deal with it and it comes with the travel pouch so yeah they've really thought of everything here all right you guys that is it for this video I hope you guys enjoyed if you like this video there's a button for that you guys want to see more stuff like this there's also a button for that

Remember all the giveaway details are in the description good luck to everyone in the giveaway and I will see you guys in the next video peace
