Features

USB-C 3.1 Hub Connects USB Peripherals to Your USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 Device
This USB-C hub allows you to connect up to three USB peripherals to your tablet, laptop, notebook, MacBook, Chromebook, smartphone or PC. This lets you expand the potential of your device by connecting USB peripherals, such as an external hard drives, flash drives, power meters and printers. You can also insert a memory card into the corresponding slot to transfer data. The memory card reader supports MicroSD, SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC cards for convenient access to digital photos, camcorder videos, smartphone data and other essential files. Only one memory card may be used at a time.

Connects USB Peripherals and Transfers Data at Fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 Speeds
In addition to accepting USB peripherals, the USB ports provide up to 0.9 amps each for charging and powering smartphones and other mobile devices. All three USB ports and the memory card slot transfer data at speeds up to 5 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The USB ports are backward compatible with previous USB generations, so you can continue using older peripherals while getting high-speed performance from new devices.

Built-In USB-C Cable Connects in Either Direction
Connect the reversible USB-C plug to your source device’s USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port. The fumble-free USB-C plug connects in either direction to ensure fast, easy connection every time.

Frequently Asked Questions

USB Type-C (or USB-C) is a new, smaller and very versatile connector with a reversible-plug that is capable of carrying data, video and power. USB Type-C is expected to eventually replace the USB Type-A and Type-B connectors currently in use. USB Type-C connectors are used in USB 2.0, USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1) and USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) applications.

Learn More: USB Type-C Cables and Adapters
Until recently, most USB cables have had a Type-A connector on one end and a Type-B connector on the other. A Type-A connector is typically connected to a desktop computer or laptop. Type-B connectors (standard, mini and micro versions) typically connect to a peripheral such as a printer, phone or camera. With a USB Type-C cable, both ends can be the same. Type-C can also support faster data transfer speeds and higher power output.

Combined with the new USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard (also called SuperSpeed+), USB Type-C can transfer data twice as fast as USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1), up to a maximum of 10 Gbs. It supports USB Power Delivery, a new protocol that allows significantly more power to be provided over USB, up to 100W. Not all USB Type-C cables and devices support USB 3.1 Gen 1, USB 3.1 Gen 2, or USB Power Delivery, so make sure to check the specifications of your equipment to see what it supports.

Learn More: USB Type-C Cables and Adapters
Your device must have a USB Type-C port to accept a Type-C connector. Older USB devices can connect to a Type-C compatible phone, tablet, or laptop using an adapter cable (e.g. Type-C connector on one end and a Type-A or Type-B connector on the other). Some devices with USB Type-C ports still use the older USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1) standards. If you have a device with a USB Type-C port running USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), you can still use older peripherals since USB 3.1 Gen 2 is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1), USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. Conversely, if you have a SuperSpeed+ peripheral with a Type-C connector, you can connect it to a Type A port running USB 3.0 (also described as USB 3.1 Gen 1), USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.

Provided that the USB device limit per host controller is not exceeded, off-the-shelf USB hubs will allow synchronization from a single host computer.
