USB Type-C at CES 2016: hubs, displays, adapters & more for the 12-inch MacBook

USB-C-Accessories-CES-2016

With the new 12-inch MacBook sporting just a single USB Type-C port, an adapter to get back some USB ports and SD card slots will be necessary for a lot of users. With more and more devices adopting the standard, we’re seeing a lot of USB C accessories announced at CES 2016 this year, many of which are designed specifically with 12-inch MacBook users in mind. So, as we’ve already done for HomeKit and Apple Watch products, below we’re rounding up all of the USB Type-C products for MacBook announced at the show this week.

In addition to hubs, companies are also showing off new portable battery packs, cables, adapters, displays and more, all made possible thanks to USB-C and compatible with the new 12-inch MacBook. 

When Apple made the switch to USB C for charging and everything else with its new 12-inch MacBook, it decided not to include its MagSafe technology, the magnetic charging connector it’s long included on its laptops. But we kick things off with a product that aims to offer a similar experience for people that were disappointed with that omission.

The BreakSafe USB-C adapter from Griffin is a magnetic charging solution similar to Apple’s own MagSafe technology, but in the form a USB-C adapter:
