About

The Ultimate Accessory For Your 2016 MacBook Pro.

The world's best laptop was re-imagined in 2016 with only USB-C Ports. Unfortunately, you now can’t connect any of your cool gadgets. We’re here to help, with the coolest solution out there

Introducing the cPro, an aluminum body, form fitted hub for your 2016 MacBook Pro.

cPro features:

• Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Body

• Charging Indicator Light

• USB-C Charging Port

• 3 USB 3.0 Ports

• HDMI Port capable of 4K & 5K

• SD & Micro SD Card Slots

 Design

The cPro was designed from the start to fit perfectly onto the 2016 MacBook Pro. The corner radii match the corners of the MacBook and the aluminum finish of the cPro is matched to the aluminum body of the notebook. Its glove-like fit ensures secure attachment to the MacBook Pro as if it was an extension of the notebook itself.

cPro is 4.7mm thinner than the overall thickness of the 13” Macbook Pro at just 10mm thick, and 5.3mm thinner than the overall thickness of the 15” Macbook Pro.

The Charging Light Returns

If you’re like us, you probably love that charging light on your last generation Macbook Pro charger. Well, it's back on the cPro with the familiar orange/green light for charging and charged status.

Most Secure Connection:

cPro has a lower tab lined with textured EPDM rubber that literally hugs your Macbook Pro when connected. This lower tab provides a grip between your hub and your laptop that is unmatched by any other USB-C device on the market. It's like it is an extension of your actual Macbook Pro.

Double Plug Technology (DPT):

cPro uses 2 plugs on the side of your Macbook Pro to make a secure connection and to give the benefit of maximum data speeds and video resolutions. We call this the Double Plug Technology (DPT). DPT splits up the connectors used for Data and Video/Charging so that the data bandwidth is not compromised. DPT makes the data rates of cPro better than any single plug hub on the market. Right now 5Gb/sec is expected but we are hoping to release with brand new technology enabling 10Gb/sec per USB port.

Compatible With:

All 2016 Macbook Pro 13" models and 15" models. Be sure to select the reward pertaining to your Macbook Pro size. At the end of the project we will send a survey to confirm which model you really need (touchbar or standard):

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Every project has its challenges regardless of the scope, however we have done our best to minimize the risks as much as possible. We are not relying on outsourced engineering, we design our products In-House. Our team has great relationships with multiple contract manufacturers, who we have used in the past with fantastic results. We also understand logistics and shipping, having delivered countless Branch products all over the world.
