A new hub is here to add ports to your Surface Pro 9. The Satechi Dual USB-C Hub for Surface Pro 9 features six ports, including a USB4 pass-through port, a USB-C port, and a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port. It also has an HDMI 2.0 port and SD and microSD card slots.

We'll have to see how it performs in real-world testing, but the Satechi Dual USB-C Hub looks like it could make our list of the best Surface Pro 9 accessories. It improves the versatility of the 2-in-1 for a reasonable price. It also has a different design than many USB-C hubs. Rather than resting on a desk or table, the Satechi Dual USB-C Hub attaches to the side of the Surface Pro 9.
This hub turns your Surface Pro 9 into a workstation that can connect to two 4K displays at once. It features six ports, including a USB4 pass-through port, and supports 100W of power delivery.
In total, the hub has a 40 Gbps bandwidth that's split between data transfer and driving up to two screens. Support for 100W power charging allows you to charge your Surface Pro 9 at its maximum rate (65W) while having some power leftover for other devices.
The HDMI port of the hub works alongside the USB4 port to output 4K video at 60Hz across two displays. Alternatively, you can use the hub to output 6K video at 60Hz on one screen.
The platinum finish of the Satechi Dual USB-C Hub matches well with the platinum Surface Pro 9, but the hub is not available in other colors.
