What USB Type-C Adapter should I buy?

Episode 1248 (1:20:46)

Chris from Ottawa, ON
Apple MacBook

Chris recently bought a 12" MacBook. Leo says it's his favorite Mac, even though it's a bit slower than the MacBook Air. It's also lighter. Should he get the Apple Type-C adapter? Leo says no. That type C adapter is $80 and that's ridiculous. He should go with a third party adapter, since the Type-C is universal.

Leo likes the Satechi Type-C USB hub, but it doesn't have passthrough power. Otherworld Computing (MacSales) has one that comes with passthrough power, and it has 10 ports!
