Macbook air m1 usb adapter

Macbook air m1 usb adapter DEFAULT

A new MacBook Pro comes with either two or four external ports, depending on the model you pick. A new MacBook Air has a pair of ports. But those MacBook ports are only of one type: Thunderbolt, which is compatible with USB-C. A 24-inch iMac comes with two Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports; some models also include two USB-C ports. You probably have devices that use USB-A, Thunderbolt 1, Thunderbolt 2, DisplayPort, HDMI, or something else. How do you connect these devices? With an adapter.

If you’re planning to buy a new 24-inch iMac, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air, make sure you set aside a considerable amount of cash for the adapters you need. Apple doesn’t include any in the box, except for a power adapter.

Your best bet is to get a combination dock, like the Satechi Slim Aluminum Type-C Multi-Port Adapter ($60 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link). It connects via USB-C, and includes a USB-C pass-through port, two USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI port with 4K (30Hz) support. With this, you don’t have to carry around multiple adapters.

If you don’t want a dock, or you can’t find a dock with the mix of connections you need, Apple or another company probably has an adapter for you. We’ve come up with this guide to help you sort out what you need, and we link to the appropriate adapter in the online Apple Store or on Amazon.

Be sure to check the return policies; sometimes adapters from third-parties don’t work. Read user reviews whenever possible, and read the specifications to make sure the adapter can do what you need it to do.

How to connect USB-C devices

The Thunderbolt ports in the current 24-inch iMac, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air work with USB-C devices, which have the same connector shape. If you want to use a USB-C device, you can just plug it into one of the Thunderbolt ports. No adapter necessary. Whew.

How to connect USB-A devices

USB-A is the USB connector with which you’re probably most familiar. It’s the USB connector that was on the previous MacBooks. (Terms like USB 4, USB 3 and USB 2 refer to the speed at which data travels through the connector.)

You can get a dock, like the before-mentioned Satechi. Or you can get Apple’s $19 USB-C to USB AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link.

If you need to connect multiple USB-A devices, get a USB-C to USB-A hub. Anker sells a USB-C to 4-Port USB 3.0 HubEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link ($25 on Amazon) that provides four USB-A ports. 

How to connect micro B SuperSpeed devices

This connector is often used with external storage devices. You’ll need a new cable, like the $15 StarTech USB C to Micro USB CableEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link. 

The name of the cable is confusing, because it could be mistaken for micro USB. But if you check the product page on StarTech’s website, you can see a clear shot of the micro B SuperSpeed connector on the cable, which is quite different from micro USB.

How to connect an iPhone or iPad

For the iPhone and iPad, if you are still using the USB-A to Lightning (or 30-pin if you’re using an older device) cable that came with your device, you can get the USB-C to USB AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link mentioned above in the USB-A section.

Don’t want an adapter? Buy a $19 Lightning to USB-C CableEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link (1m). You can also get a 2-meter version for $29.

More recent iPhones and iPads include a USB-C to Lightning cable, and the iPad Pro includes a USB-C charging cable, so you don’t need the adapter for those devices.

How to connect the Lightning EarPods

There’s now a USB-C to Lightning adapter, thanks to the folks at Anker. It’s $25 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link.Remove non-product link This adapter has a female Lightning connector on one end, so you can plug in your Lightning earphones. The other side is a standard USB-C connector that you plug into your MacBook or 24-inch iMac.

How to connect headphones with a 3.5mm headphone plug

You’re in luck. The MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and 24-inch iMac have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Just plug it in and you’re good to go. That was easy.

Now, say you need a second headphone jack. You can use a splitter, like the Belkin Speaker and Headphone 3.5 mm AUX Audio Cable Splitter ($5 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link). The $12 Belkin RockStar 5-Jack Multi Headphone Audio SplitterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link plugs into the headphone jack and adds five jacks.

How to connect Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 devices

Older versions of Thunderbolt have a different connector than the Thunderbolt connector on the current MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and 24-inch iMac. The adapter you need is Apple’s $49 Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link.

How to connect an external display

This one can eat up a chunk of your budget, because there are so many different types of display connectors. Be prepared to buy several adapters.

DisplayPort and mini DisplayPort

To connect to a DisplayPort display, you need a USB-C to DisplayPort cable or adapter. Amazon sells the Cable Matters USB-C to DisplayPort Adapter cableEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link for $18, and it supports 4K video at 60Hz.

To connect a display with mini DisplayPort, you need an adapter like the Answin USB C to Mini DisplayPort adapter ($18 on AmazonRemove product link).


Apple offers the USB-C Digital AV Multiport AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link, a $69 device that also provides a USB-A port and a USB-C port that’s for charging only. Be warned: Apple released a new version of this adapter (model number A2119) in August 2019 that supports HDMI 2.0. The older version (model number A1621) supports HDMI 1.4. When shopping, check the model number (at an Apple store, you likely will get the new model). Apple has a support document that details the differences between the two adapters.



If you don’t want to spend that much, you can get an adapter that’s just a USB-C to HDMI adapter, such as Anker’s USB-C to HDMI Adapter ($17 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link). We really like the Nonda USB-C to HDMI Adapter ($18 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link). When shopping for such adapters, look out for at least 1080p support. The Nonda adapter has 4K video support.


Cable Matters has a 6-foot USB-C to DVI Adapter ($20 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link). They also sell 3-foot ($19) and 10-foot ($23) versions.


To connect a VGA display, Apple has a USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter ($66 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link). In addition to a VGA to USB-C connection, it also provides a USB-A port for connecting a USB device, and a USB-C charging port to keep your laptop battery happy.

On the more affordable side but without the USB ports is the Benfei USB-C to VGA Adapter, which is available on Amazon for $13Edit non-product linkRemove non-product link. 

How to connect to ethernet

You’ll probably use Wi-Fi most of the time, but using an ethernet connection has its advantages. To connect to an ethernet network, you need an adapter like the Belkin USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, which is available on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link for $27.

How to connect SD cards

If you use a DLSR or other type of stand-alone camera, it might have a way to transfer your files wirelessly. If not, you need an adapter to access the SD card, like the Cable Matters Dual Slot USB C Card Reader ($10 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link).

cable matters dual slot usb c card reader

If you have a USB-A card reader, you can try using the Apple’s $19 USB-C to USB AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link, or get a USB-C dock.

How to connect FireWire devices

If you have a FireWire to USB-A cable, you can try using Apple’s $19 USB-C to USB Adapter. If you have a device with a FireWire 1394 4-pin connector—it was commonly used on video cameras and looks like this—and you need a way to connect, you can try using a USB-A to FireWire 1394 4-pin cable ($8 on Amazon) with the Apple’s USB-C to USB Adapter.

Trying to connect FireWire 400 and 800 devices gets iffy. Apple has a Thunderbolt to FireWire AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link for $29, but it has a older Thunderbolt connector that doesn’t plug into the Thunderbolt port on a new MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or 24-inch iMac.

apple thunderbolt to firewire adapter


You could try daisy-chaining adapters, but that’s always risky and may not work, not to mention potentially bad for the adapters. Plug the Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter into Apple’s $49 Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link and then plug that into the Mac.

How to connect a printer with USB-B

Many printers nowadays have wireless support, so there’s no need for a cable. But maybe you have an older printer, or you find wireless printing unreliable. Most consumer printers have a USB-B port. It’s a squarish connector, much different from USB-A or USB-C.

You need a cable like the Cable Matters USB C Printer Cable, which has a USB-C to USB-B connection. A 1 meter cable is $7Edit non-product linkRemove non-product link; other lengths are available.

cable matters usbc usbb cable

If you already have a USB-C to USB AdapterEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link, you can take the USB-A to USB-B cable that came with your printer and plug it into the adapter. Then you plug the adapter into the laptop.

How to add a classic MagSafe power connector to the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro

The power adapter that comes with the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air doesn’t have a breakaway MagSafe connector. MagSafe was a laptop lifesaver in instances where someone tripped over the power cable.

But you can still add a MagSafe connector. Tesha’s USB C Magnetic Charger Charging Cable  ($20 on AmazonEdit non-product linkRemove non-product link) is a power-only cable that has an adapter that acts like a MagSafe connector. It is available in silver or black.


These are the best USB-C hubs for the brand new M1 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Use these hubs to add more ports to your notebook.

Picking up one of Apple’s M1-powered MacBook Air or MacBook Pro notebooks is already a pretty great idea, but you can take things to a whole new level by adding a great USB-C hub to the mix as well.

The new MacBook notebooks don’t come with a plethora of ports or connectors, but these USB-C hubs will fix that in no time at all. We have a collection of some of the best and most popular hubs right here, so all you need to do is pick the one that best suits your needs.

With that said, here’s that list we just mentioned.

OKX 14-in-1 USB-C Adapter

Support for two monitors, 100W charging, and more. This hub has a total of 14 ports.

Buy: OKX 14-in-1 USB-C Adapter from Amazon: $59.99

All of these will look right at home alongside your new MacBook Air or MacBook Pro and will greatly expand its connectivity options.

If you want our opinion on which hub to grab from the list, we highly recommend picking up AUKEY with the wireless charger built right in. It’s simply an insane amount of convenience, especially if you have a phone in your pocket that supports wireless charging.

Best USB-C hubs for MacBook Pro in 2021

Apple’s MacBook Pro models have been the best laptops on the market for years with the recent 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 being the cream of the crop (for now). But even the best laptops have their shortcomings.

As good as they are, you’ll find every MacBook Pro’s weakness is its lack of ports. In fact, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 only boasts a headphone jack and a pair of Thunderbolt ports — one of which is used to charge the laptop. This isn’t ideal for those who want to use, well, any other peripheral. 

If you want to use a mouse, plug in a different keyboard, or connect your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air to a USB-C monitor, you’ll need to get yourself a USB-C hub. With this nifty connector, you can change how your laptop is used entirely — all by adding the necessary ports.

A USB-C hub will easily let you connect to one of the best monitors for MacBook Pro.

If you’re looking to transform your laptop into a full-blown desktop setup, the best docking stations will do the trick. Better yet, if you're after the best docking stations for MacBook, we've got you covered. At this point, are you asking yourself “what in the world is the difference between a USB-C hub and a docking station?” Here’s a brief explanation. 

USB-C Hub vs. Docking Station: What’s the difference? 

The difference between these two connectors is, when it comes down to it, minuscule. Both have been designed to extend the range of peripherals your laptop can connect to. While many laptops may already sport multiple ports — from USB-C and HDMI 2.0 to the most recent Thunderbolt 4 connectivity — many of the best laptops sacrifice these for a more stylish, lightweight form factor (we’re looking at you, MacBook Air and Dell XPS 13).

A USB-C hub is mainly used to expand the number of ports on your laptop and is generally powered by the laptop itself. A good hub is typically small and lightweight to match the portability of a laptop, and is perfect for professionals who are constantly on the move. While they mainly offer more USB-A 3.0 ports, seeing as most PC peripherals rely on USB-A connectivity, you’ll find plenty of the best hubs with SD card slots, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, and Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Docking stations are a step up from USB-C hubs in some ways, but are generally less portable and more expensive. These deliver connectivity for everything, offering upwards of ten ports for all kinds of peripherals. They are mainly used to turn your laptop into a desktop replacement, being able to support up to 8K resolution or dual 4K at 60Hz, audio connectivity, SD card readers, and a lot of USB-A or USB-C devices. Docking stations can power all these at once, along with your laptop, as they are plugged into the wall to deliver power.

If you’re in need of power, the best docking stations will sort you out. However, when it comes to MacBooks, USB-C hubs make for the perfect laptop accessory. Apple’s premium laptops can only connect to a single external display, meaning they don’t require all the ports a docking station boasts. Besides, USB-C hubs are a lot more portable and much easier on the wallet.

Without further ado, check out the best USB-C hubs for Apple’s MacBook Pro.

The best USB-C Hub for MacBook Pro you can buy today 

1. Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Hub

The best overall USB-C hub for MacBooks


Ports: 3 x USB-A 3.0, 1 x USB-C, 1 x HDMI v1.4, 1 x SD card reader, 1 x microSD

Reasons to buy

+Multiple ports+4K HDMI support+Small and lightweight+Very affordable

Reasons to avoid

-Dodgy pass-through power delivery

Plugable is known to deliver quality USB-C hubs and docking stations, but its USB-C 7-in-1 Hub knocks it out of the park. At its price (currently listed at $27) and the number of different ports and features it sports, this USB-C hub is a steal.

With three USB 3.0 ports with 5Gbps transfer speeds, HDMI 1.4 connectivity which can support 4K resolution at 30Hz, and two SD card readers, there’s not much else a laptop user who is on the move will need. It’s a shame the USB-C 87W pass-through charging is dodgy, but there are many laptops with a separate power supply for charging, anyway.  

See our full Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Hub review

2. Kensington SD1650P USB-C 4K Portable Docking Station

The best versatile, travel-friendly hub


Ports : 2 x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1 x USB-C 3.2 Gen1, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x VGA Full HD, 1 x RJ45 Ethernet

Reasons to buy

+Support for multiple devices+Neat portable design+100W pass-through power+4K support

Reasons to avoid

-Pricey-Additional ports needed

The Kensington SD1650P USB-C Single 4K Portable Docking Station is the “something more” owners of multiple devices should be interested in. Not only does the hybrid dock charge your Windows laptop with impressive 100W pass-through power while adding several ports, but it can also do the same for a MacBook, iPad, and even an Android tablet. If it supports USB-C connectivity, Kensington’s dock will, more likely than not, work like a charm.

The SD1650P Portable Docking Station’s compatibility is hard to beat, and since it can work off a devices’ power supply without needing a power adapter (you’ll lose the 100W power pass through), the device is a fantastic choice for travelling professionals. The ability to immediately give virtually all your devices extra ports, video output options, and a power supply using one USB-C port makes this hybrid portable dock one of the best USB-C hubs on the market, especially for MacBook users.

It’s a shame the price and limited selection of ports lets the SD1650P Portable Docking Station down, especially when other hubs are significantly more affordable. For those in need of a highly versatile device, the dock is worth your hard-earned cash, especially with its 100W pass-through power, which rivals even pricier docking stations.

See our full Kensington SD1650P USB-C 4K Portable Docking Station review

2. Dell DA300 6-in-1 USB-C Hub

The best portable USB-C hub for MacBook owners


Ports: 1 x USB-A 3.1, 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C, 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x VGA, 1 x RJ45 Ethernet

Reasons to buy

+Wide-variety of ports +Petite design +Concealed cable 

Reasons to avoid

-Not enough USB-A ports -Pricey 

The Dell DA300 is one of the smallest and most portable USB-C hubs around, thanks to its circular shape and retractable cable. It features an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, a VGA port, an RJ45 Ethernet port, one USB Type-C port, and one USB 3.1 port. While it may not have enough ports, especially when it comes to USB-A, the variety it boasts more than makes up for it. Overall, it's a great USB-C hub to take on the go, as long as you're okay with the relatively steep price. 

3. Kensington SD1600P USB-C Mobile Dock

The best hybrid dock for MacBook


Ports: 2 x USB-A 3.2 Gen1, 1 x USB-C 3.2 Gen, 1 x HDMI v1.4, 1 x HD VGA, Gigabit Ethernet Port

Reasons to buy

+USB-C pass-through power +Easily transportable +4K output +Lightweight 

Reasons to avoid

-Could use more ports -Awkward port placement -Flimsy design 

The Kensington SD1600P USB-C Mobile Dock is unique as it acts as a viable docking station and an excellent USB-C hub for MacBook users on the move. Its USB-C passthrough power supply and additional ports will free up all your other laptop inputs while charging your laptop and any other devices connected to it. Don’t need a power supply? That’s fine, as it can also be powered by your laptop.

One major downside is the mobile dock’s power pass-through functionality doesn’t work on the 16-inch MacBook Pro (2020). But, it does work with Apple's recent line of M1 Macbook models and other MacBook models.

If you can excuse the awkward port placement and don’t have a 16-inch MacBook Pro (2020), this mobile dock is a solid purchase for traveling professionals.

4. Kingston Nucleum USB-C hub

Fantastic USB-C hub with plenty of ports


Ports: 2 x USB-A 3.0, 2 x USB-C, 1 x HDMI, 1 x SD card slot, 1 x microSD card slot

Reasons to buy

+Great selection of ports +Lightweight design +USB-C pass-through charging 

Reasons to avoid

-Pricey -Pass-through charging isn’t as powerful 

Kingston’s Nucleum USB-C hub is small and slick, with access to two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, an SD card and microSD card slot, one USB-C with 60W pass-through charging, and one regular USB-C port. It doesn’t feel too lightweight or cheaply made, and even the cable is sturdy. The Nucleum is an overall quality hub, but it is pretty expensive considering the pass-through power it delivers isn’t as high as other USB-C hubs. 

5. Anker PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB-C Hub

Quality USB Type-C hub for MacBook users


Ports: 2 x USB-A 3.0, 1 x USB-C, 1 x HDMI, 1 x SD card slot, 1 x microSD card slot, 1 x Gigabit Ethernet

Reasons to buy

+Port variety +USB-C pass-through charging +4K output +Ethernet connectivity 

Reasons to avoid

-USB-C port only for power delivery 

This Anker USB-C hub delivers great power in such a lightweight device, thanks to its multiple ports and USB-C pass-through power delivery. With two USB 3.0 ports, 4K output at 30Hz, both kinds of SD card readers, and even a Gigabit Ethernet cable connectivity for those looking for faster internet speeds, MacBook owners won’t be disappointed.  

However, keep in mind that its USB-C port is solely used for power delivery and not data transfer, which means you won’t get any added USB-C connectivity once you plug it in. That said, that’s what the other USB-C port on your MacBook is for. 

6. Euasoo 9-in-1 USB-C Hub

A brilliant USB Type-C hub with a few hiccups


Ports: 3 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB Type-C, 1 x HDMI, 1 x RJ45 Ethernet, 1 x SD card slot, 1 x microSD card slot, 1 x 3.5mm headphone jack

Reasons to buy

+A huge amount of ports +USB-C pass-through for charging 

Reasons to avoid

-Audio jack is unreliable 

The Euasoo hub has a slim, sleek design with a plentiful amount of ports for a decent price. That includes a USB-C charging port, three USB 3.0 ports, a 4K HDMI port, RJ45 Ethernet port, a microSD card slot, an SD card slot, and a headphone/mic jack.

The spacing between the USB ports is enough so that the connectors don’t touch, but the wire connecting to the laptop is annoyingly short. We also found that the audio jack was unreliable in producing sound through both left and right earphones, as the right ear would only produce sound if I held the cord a certain way and even the mic won’t work at all. 

7. Landhoo 5-in-1 USB Type-C Hub

An slick and adaptable USB-Type C Hub


Ports: 1 x HDMI, 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x SD card slot, 1 x microSD card slot, 1 x USB Type-C (charging)

Reasons to buy

+Fits nicely with MacBook Pro+Type-C charging port+Adds HDMI, SD memory ports

Reasons to avoid

-Not the strongest connection

You may not have heard of accessory-maker Landhoo before, but this snap-on hub, available in silver, space gray, black, gold and rose gold, is starting the company out on the right foot with us. 

Not only does it offer an HDMI output port, dual USB 3.0 ports, an SD memory reader, and a microSD memory reader, but its pass-through-charging Type-C port means it's good for those with only one Type-C port. The only thing we disliked is that its connection didn't feel as stable as others, as it jiggled uncomfortably when trying to connect to different devices.

These days, the best USB-C hubs are now a vital part of any setup, especially portable ones.

That’s great and all – USB-C connections are much faster and more reliable, after all – but many peripherals still rely on USB Type-A, HDMI or other types of connections. That’s where the best USB-C hubs come in. They’ll let you expand the number of ports you’ll have access to as well as give you a great variety as well, making your setup a bit more versatile. 

It’s never been more important to invest in one of the best USB-C hubs and docks. In fact, we at TechRadar rely on them ourselves for our daily workloads, which means we know which ones work and which ones don’t. We’ve even collected our favorite ones right here.

The best USB-C adapter deals

Anker PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB C Adapter

The best USB-C adapter at an affordable price

Ports: 1x USB-C data, 1x USB-C charging, 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1 4K HDMI port, a micro SD card slot, and an SD card slot | Passthrough charging: No | Weight: 99g | Power: 85W

A variety of ports



No USB 3.0 passthrough charging

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a deal on USB-C hubs better than Anker’s PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB-C Adapter. This portable hub pretty much has you set on all the ports you’ll need, including a 4K HDMI port and USB-C charging. 

That makes this an indispensable tool for creative professionals who need a variety of ports for their variety of devices. Best of all, it’s also incredibly lightweight at 99g, which makes it easy to slip into one of your laptop bag pockets without adding to the weight when you’re commuting or traveling. Of course, it also comes with Anker’s 18-month warranty so you can swap yours out if it stops working.

Kingston Nucleum USB-C hub

Best cheap USB-C hub with pass-through charging

Ports: 2x USB 3.0, 1x HDMI, 1x SD card slot, 1x microSD card slot, 2x USB-C | Passthrough charging: Yes | Weight: 136g | Power: 60W

Passthrough charging

Good range of ports

Less power than others

The Kingston Nucleum USB-C hub covers a massive variety of bases. Not only are you getting plenty of ports here, but with passthrough charging you'll still have access to your USB-C port as well. That's particularly important if you're working with a machine with only one port available in the first place. 

It's a little pricier for that extra charging capability, but we regularly see this model on sale as well, so if you spot a price below that $49.99 / £49.99 MSRP we'd recommend jumping on it. 

Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter

The best USB-C adapter for Apple fans

Ports: Thunderbolt USB-C, 1 USB 3.0, 4K HDMI | Passthrough charging: Yes | Weight: 23g

Official high quality-build Apple product

Not many ports


If you're a loyal Apple superfan then you'll be wanting the official Apple USB-C adapter for your MacBook or MacBook Pro. There's no denying the excellent build quality Apple provides on its hardware and accessories, but this is very much a case of paying more for the label rather than the usefulness of the product itself. This official option is seriously lacking ports compared to the other USB-C adaptors on this page, which are often cheaper too. If you only need the three though and want the reliability of an official product, then you'll find the best prices below.

Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD

The best USB-C hub for smaller desks

Ports: Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), three USB-A 3.0 (1.5A charging each), display, audio in/out, audio out, Gigabit ethernet | Display support: Dual 4K (60fps), Single 5K (30fps) | Data transfer speed: 40Gbps | Cable length: 1m

Small form factor

Double previous transfer speeds

More expensive than previous model

It might be one of the smallest USB-C hubs around, but the Beklin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD is packed with ports and supports full-strength passthrough charging. The smaller form-factor is certainly worth considering if you're going to need it away from the desk too. Belkin have been one of the most reliable manufacturers of third-party Apple products for years if you're looking for a little extra assurance. The main improvement over the older (and admittedly cheaper) Thunderbolt 2 [UK price / US price] is the doubling of the file transfer speed to 40Gbps.

Dell DA300 6-in-1 USB-C hub

The best USB-C adapter for traveling

Ports: 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, 1x VGA, 1x RJ45 Ethernet, 1x USB Type-C, 1x USB 3.1 | Passthrough charging: Yes | Weight: 79g

Ethernet connectivity

Compact and lightweight

A little pricey

No MicroSD or SD card ports

If you're looking for a powerful USB-C hub that will sit just as nicely on your desk as it will your backpack, this Dell DA300 offers a wide range of ports and an extendable cable that provides excellent flexibility as well. Though it's a little pricier than smaller options, you're getting both DisplayPort and Ethernet connectivity here, though sacrificing MicroSD and SD Card functionality.
