Product Overview Here’s an easy way to connect a wider range of peripherals to your USB-C enabled laptop. This 4-port USB 3.0 hub lets you connect both USB-C™ and USB-A peripherals to your laptop or desktop computer, through a single USB Type-C™ or Thunderbolt™ 3 port.

It's ideal for virtually any USB-C equipped laptop, such as your MacBook, Chromebook, Dell™ Latitude 11 5000 2-in-1, or Dell XPS 12.

Expand your USB connection options
This USB 3.0 hub lets you expand your USB connection options using the USB-C port on your computer. (USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1.) It offers one USB-C port and three USB-A ports, so you can connect traditional USB devices now, while still being able to connect the growing number of USB Type-C devices in the future.

The integrated, easy-to-use USB Type-C connector is small and reversible, which makes for easier insertions. You can connect the plug with either side facing up, which means less risk of damaging your ports, and less frustration.

Charge-and-sync your mobile devices
With three fast-charge ports, this hub can help to ensure that your tablets and smartphones are charged and ready to use when you need them. Each USB-A port supports USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2, so you can charge and sync up to three devices simultaneously. (The charge provided depends on the number of devices connected and the amount of power current each device draws. The hub’s USB-C port does not support charging.)

Designed for versatility
This self-powered USB 3.0 hub comes with an external power adapter to support power-hungry USB devices, such as larger external hard drives and enclosures, which require more power than USB power can provide on its own. Plus, the versatile USB 3.0 hub takes up minimal space on a desk, so it fits perfectly in hot-desk or BYOD environments.

With its compact and lightweight design, the USB hub is also ideal for mobile use. You can simply tuck the hub and power adapter into your laptop bag to expand your connectivity when you’re traveling.

Save time and money
Avoid the cost of purchasing new peripherals, by using this USB 3.0 hub with your current USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices. The self-powered hub installs quickly with no additional drivers or software required, and it’s compatible with virtually all operating systems. Features • Expand the connectivity of your USB-C enabled computer.
• Add both USB-C and USB-A ports to your USB-C port enabled laptop, MacBook, Chromebook, or desktop computer.
• Simultaneously fast-charge up to three mobile devices — all three USB-A ports support USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2.

• Compact design for easy portability.
• Thunderbolt 3 data port compatible.
