HomeKit Australia's new USB4 or Thunderbolt 4 cable is heavily shielded and features a premium, smart e-marker chip at each connector, with a cable diameter of 6mm. HomeKit Australia now offers this Thunderbolt 4 cable in lengths of 1 metre and 1.8 metres.
This super-premium quality, 1 metre USB4 cable remains highly flexible and offers 20V 5A 100w charging and up to 40Gbs data transfer. Always check the rating as some Thunderbolt 3 cables will only offer up to 60w charging. Our ultra-premium Thunderbolt cables are produced under contract in an Apple MFI certified factory.
With USB4, Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 devices connected with this USB4 cable, you can transfer 14 hours of HD video in 1 minute.
HomeKit Australia's USB4 Thunderbolt 4 cable will immediately connect a Mac or PC with USB4, Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 3 or 4 devices. This might include SSD drives, hard drives, docking stations, external graphics, eGPU cards and high end monitor displays. This ideal for connecting USB4 or Thunderbolt 4 monitors as USB4 allows hosts devices to optimally scale allocations for display data flow. Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 peer-to-peer 10Gbit networking is also supported.
You can also connect a USB4, Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 equipped Mac in target disk mode to another similarly equipped Mac computer or laptop for maximum system migration or data transfer. With USB4 it's possible to daisy chain up to 6 USB4 or Thunderbolt devices.
Please remember that this USB4 Thunderbolt 4 cable may be capable of certain speeds, but the connected devices may not.
This cable will also work (at reduced capacity) with USB-C, USB 3.2, and USB 3.1 and at peak capacity with Thunderbolt 4, USB4 and Thunderbolt 3 devices.
Our premium Thunderbolt and USB4 cable is initially available in black. New stock has arrived from our Apple MFI cable factory and these USB4 and Thunderbolt cables are shipping now.
White cables will be available late 2021.
As a comparison of HomeKit Australia's USB-C and Thunderbolt cables, the diameter of our 3 grades of cable may be useful. Our entry-level 60w rated USB-C cable has a diameter of 3mm, the 100w USB-C cable 4mm and HomeKit Australia's Thunderbolt 4 cable 6mm.
The 54g weight of these 1 metre Thunderbolt cables is almost double the weight of a budget USB-C cable.
You can download our extensive history of Thunderbolt and it's relationship with USB-C.
We've also added a screenshot of speed testing our 2TB Thunderbolt SSD drive using this Thunderbolt 4 cable. We have a comparison screenshot using a third party Thunderbolt 3 cable (that costs a lot more). Please email us if you'd like to see the comparison performance - it is quite staggering!
Please remember that Gbps stands for Gigabits per second.
We use Gbps as it is the commonly used measure of data transfer speeds between hardware devices ... storage capacity is typically measured in bytes, whilst data transfer speeds are typically measured in bits.
1GB/s is equivalent of 8Gbps, so 40Gbps is equivalent to a GB data transfer of 5GB/sec.
