Introducing the FinalHub
FinalHub is the only portable workstation that perfectly combines the features of a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C docking hub, a mobile pocket router, and a power bank. It’s designed so you can be safely connected and productive wherever you go.
Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub
FinalHub’s docking function provides all the ports you need for your Type-C laptops (MacBooks, Lenovo X1 series, ChromeBooks, etc), normal laptops, and mobile devices. It is designed to work perfectly with Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android devices. Its compact size helps organize a crowded desk and it offers twelve practical ports to connect your system simultaneously to a wide variety of accessories, including HD monitors. It can also deliver 87 Watts of power to your laptop, charging it at maximum speed.
Mobile Pocket (Wi-Fi) Router
Designed so you can stay safely connected wherever you are, FinalHub’s Pocket Router offers two different ways for connectivity - a Gigabit Ethernet port and a SIM card slot for true wireless freedom. It is 4G LTE network-unlocked and can connect up to ten different devices.
With the need for cyber security and privacy becoming more important than ever, FinalHub’s built-in security includes firewall, ad and tracking script blocking, secure DNS, VPN and Tor Client support. The router firmware is 100% open source, based on OpenWrt, so you know we won’t be tracking your web traffic. It's perfect for protecting your privacy when connected to your hotel room's unsecured internet when you're on vacation or business trip.
FinalHub’s onboard Li-Po battery has 12,000 mAh of capacity - giving your MacBook Pro an additional 150% of power or providing up to 48 hours of 4G connectivity. It is also equipped with QC 3.0 and PD 3.0 standards to help fast charge all your mobile devices.
We started with the concept of a portable docking hub that can replace all the adaptors we are forced to use with the new MacBook Pro. We wanted to make it even better and more powerful than the existing hubs on the market, yet keeping it as minimal as possible.
While designing the FinalHub, we noticed more and more young professionals working from cafes and coworking spaces, which gave us the idea of adding some features to protect users’ information from unsecured internet connections and also improve their mobility. The Gigabit Ethernet and Micro SIM ports were eventually added, which allow users to be safely connected and share Wi-Fi to other devices.
To achieve our vision of the most portable docking hub ever, we flawlessly fitted two compact Li-Po batteries into the FinalHub’s minimal design. Now it is also a portable power bank to charge other portable devices such as USB Type-C laptops and smartphones.

Risks and challenges
Creating a brand new product without corporate support is often risky. Our team is incredibly experienced in the field of design and production. The design of the FinalHub has been finalized. The next step is going to be mass production after funding.
The FinalHubs shown in the video and the campaign content are fully functional prototypes.
Our manufacturing partner is very experienced in battery and circuit design. But we also have taken the precaution of production and shipment delays and we’re aligning our schedule to minimize the impact to our backers.
Li-po batteries are seldom an air-restricted item. We’ve done lots of research to ensure the Finalhub are completely Airsafe. FCC, RoHS, CE, UN38.3 safety certification will be obtained when FinalHub reaches mass production level.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
