At home, I use a MacBook Pro connected to two large monitors. At work, I have a 27” iMac. It is a fantastic computer, but I don’t like that the ports and connections are at the back. That makes it difficult to quickly connect and disconnect peripherals. That’s where the $89.99 Satechi Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub comes in.
Seems like it took a long while, but companies are finally embracing USB Type-C by integrating it in all of their products (balls in your court now, Apple). However, Satechi, a favorite here at Gear Diary announces two silver and sleek Type-C chargers that you’re going to want in your bag, at home, or wherever you charge up devices.

The MacBook is one of the most capable (and portable) laptops I’ve ever used, but getting acclimated to its single Type-C port has been an adjustment. Products like the Satechi Type-C Multiport Adapter are making the transition much easier.
I finally broke down and bought a MacBook after months of hard-sell from Helena. Being able to carry a full Mac OS X computer that weighs so much less than my 13″ MacBook Pro has been liberating; figuring out how to charge my travel laptop and other devices at the same time has been a bit more of a challenge.
As you already know, I really enjoy Satechi’s products. They all are very well made, and there is nothing different when it comes to their Aluminum Power Strip.
Taking group photos are hard, yes, even on an Android. I don’t care what feature Samsung places in their commercials, there’s something pretty cool (albeit corny) about a selfie stick. So when Satechi sent over their Bluetooth Smart Selfie Extension Arm monopod, the first thing that came to mind is “I finally get to try one!!”
I feel like I have an addiction: Battery Chargers. I hadn’t found one that will charge all of my devices collectively at night when I go to bed, or whenever I’m traveling, hold up enough juice to last throughout the day. It’s safe to say that has changed.
So as you know… Today is Amazon Prime Day, and you know what that means right? It’s time to pull out your purse and wallet and get a great deal on those items that you probably have on your wish list but wanted to wait until the price dropped.

One of the worst problems I have when I have friends over is them using every outlet in my house. Having to step over cords and having to find multiple USB ports gets tired really fast. So thanks to Satechi, I may have found a solution for too many devices. and not enough outlets.
I admit, as much as I love my 7 year old Prius, I get a little jealous hearing about the amazing ways smartphones are being integrated with newer cars. Satechi clearly feels my pain, and they’ve come up with a much more cost effective solution than a brand new car in their newly announced BT Button Series.
I spent a week in Israel this past summer and pretty much everywhere we went, my friends Robyn, Menachem and I took a selfie and shared it on social media. (If there is more than one person is it called an “Us-ie?” just wondering…) I really wish we had the Satechi Smart Selfie Extension Arm with us at the time!
One million selfies taken on a daily basis. That means the market for selfie-driven products is already huge and, with the release of the iPhone 6 tomorrow, ready to grow by leaps and bounds. That’s where the Satechi Smart Selfie Extension Arm Monopod. This inexpensive accessory will make it “simple to selfie” and does so for under $40.
It has been some time since I felt the need for a task light while working at my desk or at our kitchen island. The reason for that is quite simple, my house was renovated by my father-in-law, and he has a thing about putting tons of lights in any room has designs and rebuilds. Still, there are times when…
If you are a frequent traveler throughout the year, you’ve probably encountered a number of unpleasant environments where rooms or areas are so dry you might feel like your skin and sinuses decided to vacation in the Mojave Desert. Desiccation might be in order if you are a piece of jerky, but our bodies tend to prefer a fair…
When Apple first announced the MacBook Pro with retina display a year ago, they made a big deal out of the fact that the 15″ laptop powerhouse would not only ship with the best screen ever, but that it also sported the best speakers they had ever put in a laptop. Having had my MBPr for almost a year, I can…
When I began using my Canon T3i to shoot video last spring I quickly discovered that the onboard microphone was terrible. It did not capture good audio and, even worse, you could hear the autofocus motor when it was doing its thing. I ultimately solved this by using a Marshall Electronics MXL FR-310 Hot Shoe Shotgun Microphone (read the review)…
When I was using a desktop, I was able to set things up just the way I liked… and leave them that way. I used one of the USB ports on my iMac for an iOS 30-pin cable, one for a printer, one for a high quality microphone and one for a USB hub. That hub connected to a scanner…
Our family keeps our gear charged thanks to a dedicated area on the kitchen counter. We sometimes have multiple USB chargers plugged in at the same time with a web of charging cables and a stack of devices fueling up for the day. As our dependence on these electronic gadgets continues to grow, protecting them while charging is more important…
