This aluminum USB-C hub adds four USB-A ports to your 12-inch MacBook for $14 Prime shipped (Reg. $20)

AnkerDirect via Amazon offers its 4-Port USB-C hub for $19.99. However, we’ve partnered with Anker to bring 9to5Toys readers an exclusive deal: coupon code FYPVFIP7 during checkout drops your final cost down to $13.99 Prime shipped. That’s the first discount of any kind we’ve seen on this recently released hub. Early Amazon reviewers rate this hub a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.

Apple may have pushed USB-C into the spotlight when it released the all-new 12-inch MacBook, but other devices like Google’s updated Chromebook Pixel also feature USB-C. This hub will let you use all of your existing USB-A flash drives, printers, sync cables and more with your USB-C equipped device. Other features include a built-in 1.3-ft USB 3.0 cable, an aluminum design, up to 5Gbps data speeds, and a 16-month warranty.

Keep it mind that it doesn’t have an extra USB-C port so you can’t charge your MacBook and use the hub at the same time. If you need charging capabilities as well, you’ll want to go with this type of hub

Here are your best options from around the web.
