USB-C Hub Stories November 4, 2015

Amazon offers two USB-C hubs for those who need more ports for the new Macbooks. The first is the Aukey USB-C to 4-Port Aluminum Hub for $19.99 Prime shipped. That’s $10 off the regular price and the first drop we’ve seen for it. It has a solid aluminum body and it’s shaped like a rounded cylinder. It has over-current protection built into each port to protect both connected devices and your hub from power surges. 

Next is the Aukey SuperSpeed 4-Port Hub with USB Type-C Adapter also for only $19.99 Prime shipped. It’s regularly priced at $30 and it is fully bus-powered for instant plug and play. Like the hub above, it has multiple safeguards including: over-current, over-heat and over-voltage protection. expand full story

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
