Features The new standard
USB 3.0 Type-C ports have two distinct advantages over the existing forms. They are smaller and therefore ideal for thin laptops and mobile devices and it is no longer necessary to insert the connector in a particular orientation. It always fits and thus saves the user a lot of small annoyances when connecting devices.
No more slots?
If you want to use your existing USB 3.0 devices on the latest mobile devices and laptops with a USB Type-C port this compact hub is a quick help. It uses a single USB 3.0 Type-C port on its own and creates four additional Type-A ports. Problem solved!
Additional power supply?
The hub provides a connection for an optional AC adapter when many devices are connected with a high power requirement. And best of all: the integrated USB connection cable can not be removed, so it can't get lost. This makes it the perfect Companion on the road.
