Some are talking here, as for the KADI;

KADI: solely port expansion, data, video & power.
Downside as the Kadi mimics the Retina MacBook`s svelte profile, I can see some USB plugs etc. may place strain and or force the Kadi up off the desk, requires a further adaptor for HDMI.

Yep, already posted...but oertinent in any case because this one is now as of today officially funded. Delivery to backers is still scheduled for August as of the latest update email that went out from them today.

As @Queen6 says, very fat connector designs may indeed push up the hub and create stress on the USB-C portion. However, Apple's own cables won't have this problem at all, and in my own personal use case, I can only see myself using the USB-A to charge an iPhone or iPad in a pinch. YMMV of course.

For me, and this is the only one I've backed. It is the most lightweight, simple, and portable solution, which was what I was looking for. I don't want an extra battery and haven't used HDMI in 4+ years of MBA ownership. I am not looking for a permanent desktop dock. If I were, the Portable USB-C dock would be preferable to the Hub+ as it is a much more complete and capable solution. Hub+ is sort of a 'tweener - but I guess is a good option if you are looking for an all arounder jack of all trades type of solution.

That`s why Apple`s own multipart adaptor is on a short line and not directly connected to the Notebooks USB C port.
