NOW, “funding” on KICKSTARTER: SuperHub Card-Sized Charging, Data & Video Hub with Dual PD
Breaking News: SuperHub makes Apple’s new iPad Pro even better.
Apple just released its new iPad Pro this week, and we’re really impressed! It’s a powerful and convenient device for people on the go. And looking at the specs, there’s really no better companion for the new iPad Pro than SuperHub.
The new iPad Pro has a maximum charging speed of 30W, but the power adapter included with iPad Pro only offers 18W. SuperHub can deliver 30W, meaning it can charge the new iPad Pro in almost half the time compared to the included charger. That’s less time tethered to a wall outlet and more time being productive… or just having fun.
Get More Done
On top of that, SuperHub expands the capabilities of the new iPad Pro’s Magic Keyboard. iPad Pro has a USB-C port that can be connected to SuperHub to take advantage of hub capabilities, so you can pass-through charge another USB-C device and connect a USB-A device as well.
A New Perspective
One more thing! Want to hook up an external display? SuperHub’s HDMI port delivers [email protected] video, for twice the resolution and detail compared to 1080p.

SuperHub is a credit card-sized 4-port adapter & hub, an integrated charging, data & video transfer solution for work, meetings, travel, entertainment and more. Wherever your day takes you, SuperHub lets you do more while carrying less.
As a hybrid power adapter and hub, SuperHub is powerful enough to handle many tasks and compact enough to take anywhere, making your life easier. With cutting edge GaN technology, SuperHub is handy and portable, with a smaller footprint than a credit card.
How Does SuperHub Work with the New iPad Pro
Keep your iPad Pro powered with 30W Power Delivery at meeting while share a bigger screen with others. SuperHub provides 18W Power Delivery for another phone and a USB-A port to work as a hub if you need.
How Does SuperHub Work with Nintendo Switch
SuperHub provides 30W Power Delivery to charge your Switch at full speed. At the same time, enjoy a 4K resolution through TV mode display!
SuperHub’s three USB ports can power up to three devices simultaneously, from tablets and smartphones to cameras and wearables. Charge more devices in less time, without swapping ports.
With 30W Power Delivery, SuperHub can fast-charge your iPad Pro, Switch, or even a MacBook at full speed, while charging iPhone up to 50% in 30 minutes at the same time. Powered by SuperHub, the 11” iPad Pro can get two more hours of charge in just one hour. That’s better than the 18W power adapter that comes with iPad Pro.
Work: 30W Power Delivery + 18W Power Delivery
Master your workflow with simultaneous data sync and hi-speed charging.
Use SuperHub to connect your USB-C laptop, tablet, or phone to your USB-A camera, flash drive, mouse, or keyboard, and HDMI display, TV, projector and more.
Meeting: Power Supply + HUB + HDMI Solution
Keep your devices charged while taking charge of your next presentation.
SuperHub uses USB 3.1 with 5Gbps data transfer, 10 times faster than traditional USB 2.0. You can transfer a movie in seconds. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t like waiting.
Travel: Super High 5Gbps Data Transfer
Even if you really enjoy photography, transferring photos from your camera to your computer probably isn’t the highlight of your day. SuperHub’s high-speed 5Gbps data transfer makes quick work of this task, anywhere. Yes, even without plugging it into the wall first.
SuperHub’s [email protected] HDMI port allows you to connect compatible USB-C devices to a TV or larger display with up to 4K resolution. While similar products are capable of a slower frame rate of 30Hz, SuperHub delivers 60Hz performance. Whether you’re giving a presentation, watching a movie, or gaming, enjoy twice the detail.
Entertainment: A Better Viewing Experience
Watching movies directly on a phone or tablet is far from ideal. Use SuperHub to connect your compatible phone or tablet to a high-resolution display and enjoy up to 4K resolution at 60Hz. Don’t forget the popcorn.
DeX / PC Mode: Turn Your Samsung Galaxy S20 into a Laptop
You know those days when you need your laptop but you don’t need your laptop? If your phone supports DeX/PC mode, you can use SuperHub to connect your phone to an external display and keyboard. This feature is compatible with the latest Samsung S20. Leave the laptop at home if it’s not sparking joy today.
Note: This feature is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S10/S20, Note 10/10+ for USB PD charging and DeX mode, Huawei P20/P30, Mate 10/20/30 series for USB PD charging and PC mode.
SuperHub supports two working modes–desktop mode and wall charger mode–to adapt to your needs in any situation.
Here is a partial list of devices compatible with SuperHub.
How Does SuperHub Work?
“SuperHub is an absolutely great piece of tech to have on hand. For the vast majority of users, it has everything they need.” ——Andrew O’Hara, — AppleInsider.com
“…the Zendure SuperHub might be the only power hub you could need.”
“If you’re looking for a way to consolidate your accessories into a smaller package, then I don’t think you’ll regret picking up one of the SuperHub.”
Something has been bugging us for a while. A laptop power brick takes up so much space, but it only does one thing. Sure, we could add more ports to it, but there had to be more. So we began looking at the sort of “everyday carry” situation for people who are most impacted by this unitasking brick: heavy on-the-go laptop users. We wanted to see what kinds of devices and accessories were essential for these users, and figure out if we could deliver a better solution.
That was back in 2018. We spoke with daily laptop users to get an idea of the feature set that would be most useful to them. Then we got to work on figuring out how to deliver that. We knew pretty early on that we’d need to use GaN (gallium nitride) technology to boost SuperHub’s efficiency and make the device as small as possible.
SuperHub uses Power Integrations PowiGaN Technology SC1933C power IC. PowiGaN is Power Integrations’ internally developed gallium nitride (GaN) technology. PowiGaN switches replace the traditional silicon transistors on the primary side of PI’s highly integrated offline flyback switcher ICs, reducing switching losses and enabling chargers, adapters and open frame power supplies that are more efficient, smaller and lighter than silicon alternatives.
Then we started working on mechanical and electronic prototypes, focusing on core functions as well as overall design and user experience. Every aspect of the product, from its dimensions and slip-resistant feet to the spacing between the ridges and the “D” logo status light, have been fine-tuned so we could create a product that is both useful and attractive.
Two years of ideation, consultation, and iteration has brought us to SuperHub, a multi-port power supply, USB hub, and HDMI converter that could hide under a credit card. A product that most users would be happy to carry in place of their laptop’s power brick.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of SuperHub, and we don’t intend to keep you waiting too long to get your hands on it. We’ve already gone into trial production, which allows us to identify areas for improvement before mass production begins. Those improvements are nearly complete, and we are on track to deliver the earliest reward in May of this year.
To clarify, SuperHub are available with two versions, the NS Edition and the standard version. Please note, the standard version doesn’t support Switch in TV mode. Below is the detail comparison of those two versions.
In this campaign, you save up to 50% off the expected retail price of SuperHub ($99.99), but the amount is limited, and this promotion is only available through this campaign. Start pledging now!
SuperHub includes a versatile USB-C to USB-C cable. This cable supports [email protected] video display, 5 Gbps data transfer and up to 60W charging speed (with a 60W power supply), which fully supports all functions of SuperHub and other compatible devices.
SuperHub comes with an AC cable. If you’d rather plug SuperHub directly into the wall, a global adapter kit will be available as an add-on. This global adapter kit includes four regional adapters (US, UK, EU, and AU), which means SuperHub can work in over 200 countries and regions.
Here is the full list of the package contents. Please note accessories are different in two versions.
Optional Accessories (add these to your order after the campaign ends):

Riesgos y desafíos
We are very excited to bring to market the most advanced 2-in-1 adapter & hub, SuperHub. We have devoted our heart, soul, and creativity to designing and manufacturing this great product. Timing is always a big challenge with respect to the production and shipment of a new product. We have padded our timeline to make sure that we can hit the time frames we have laid out. We are committed to keeping you informed of our progress throughout our campaign. We will work with a top-notch courier company to offer reliable and fast international delivery. And our Zendure service team is in place to personally handle every backer’s questions and make sure all backers can receive their orders without any issues. We assure you that we are all making great efforts to produce a marvelous product that not only arrives on time, but is of optimum quality. Please note that we want to make sure that we ship a quality product and this can cause delays even with the padded timeline.Más información sobre el concepto de responsabilidad en Kickstarter

Diseño de larga duración
From day one, we have been asking ourselves, what is sustainable manufacturing? For a company, the best way to be sustainable is to make our products durable. In fact, durability is our DNA. You can tell this from our name. Our debut product line, the A-Series crushproof power banks, is known to be the most durable mobile power products in the industry. Since the launch on Kickstarter in 2013, a lot of people are still using the first generation today. Our SuperCord charging cable is one of the most durable cables on the market surpassing over 50,000 times of bends test. Our Passport travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse can reset over 10,000 times, while most other products on the market have to be replaced when the fuse is blown. As for SuperHub, we gave it some future-proof features, such as the newly-emerged GaN technology, 4K60Hz (while most hubs on the market offer only 30Hz), USB3.1 data transfer, etc, so that people can use it for many years to come.
Reutilización y reciclaje
Since 2016, Zendure has been participating in the WEEE program in Europe (WEEE-Reg.-Nr. DE 78717859), which means we have taken the responsibility for recycling electronic waste. Also, we are planning to offer trade-in programs for fans in select countries so that they could turn in old products for credits, and then we can recycle the old products.
All of our packaging materials including the manuals and stickers are made from recycled materials. We have been doing this since 2013.
We work with a factory we have known for many years, and they are a Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) audited factory. They are also ISO9001 and 14001 certified. Another thing we’d like to mention is that our factory acknowledges and supports the Restricted Use of Conflict Minerals. They investigate their suppliers to ensure the origins of the minerals used e.g. Co., Au, Pd., Ta, Sn. etc are not conflict minerals obtained from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), or obtained from other illegal ways.
We have many years of experience in fulfilling crowdfunding products and we have hired an experienced logistics manager who worked for a US company for many years. We plan to optimize our shipping routes by first shipping bulk quantities to local warehouses in the US and Europe to reduce the carbon footprint of our delivery plan.
We have signed up to be Climate Neutral certified and are waiting for their feedback in May since their first round of 2019 certifications are now closed.
