The Best MacBook Accessories for 2022
We have found a lot of great accessories for your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, including mice, chargers, laptop stands, and external storage. Some of these accessories are specifically designed for MacBook, while others will work with other devices too.
Based on what we've found, here are the best accessories for MacBook right now.
1. Satechi Thunderbolt 4 Dock
The Thunderbolt 4 Dock from Satechi includes four USB-A ports, one USB-A 2.0 port for charging older devices, and three USB-A 3.2 ports which can support data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. We would have liked to see Satechi include a UHS-III SD card reader, but the UHS-II model is included here.
One of the complaints about recent MacBook is that they lack a USB-A port. This can make it difficult to transfer files from a thumb drive or other USB device. The Nonda USB-C (male) to USB-A (female) adapter can speed up data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps, and it also works with other laptops and phones. This adapter is relatively affordable, making it a good choice for MacBook owners.
2. Anker 100W 4-Port Type-C Charging Station
If you're using a MacBook at home or at work, you'll need a charging station. The best option is the Anker 100W 4-Port Type-C Charging Station, which can charge your MacBook faster and accommodate more devices at once.
3. LG Ultrafine 27-inch 5K Monitor
The LG Ultrafine 27-inch 5K monitor is a good option for people who want a large monitor for working on their MacBook. The monitor has a 5K display that is P3 wide color gamut and has accuracy and brightness that makes HDR content look incredible. The monitor also has a built-in Thunderbolt 3 port, USC-C support, a fully adjustable stand, a webcam, microphone, and stereo speakers. The monitor is compatible with macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and iOS 12.4.
4. Logitech MX Master 3
There is nothing wrong with MacBook trackpads, but it is always beneficial to have a good mouse to truly maximize productivity. One of our favorite mice is the Logitech MX Master 3, which has an ergonomic design, long battery life, and customizable settings. It is great for professionals who spend the majority of their time on specialized software, but is also great for regular users because of its comfort.
5. Twelve South Curve Stand
Laptop stands are common for people who work on laptops for a long time. If you don't want to sit hunched over, a laptop stand can help. This stand is aluminum and has a minimal design, which makes it look good and improves laptop airflow.
6. Samsung T7 Touch Portable SSD
Apple's iCloud makes it easy to store files online, but you can't always rely on a stable internet connection. That's why you might want to keep your most important files on a portable storage device, such as the Samsung T7 Touch SSD. This small and light external SSD has transfer speeds of over 1000 MB per second and is sturdy enough to withstand drops from six feet. It comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable and USB-C to USB-C, making it compatible with MacBook. Some users on Amazon have reported software issues, but it doesn't seem to be a widespread problem.
7. Anker PowerCore Slim 10000
The Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 Portable Charger is a good choice for anyone traveling with a MacBook. It is durable and has a slim design, making it easy to carry. It also has Anker's PowerIQ and VoltageBoost tech, which will ensure your MacBook gets a good charge. The charger comes with a travel pouch, making it easy to take with you wherever you go.
