USB-C, in case you didn’t already know, allows you to connect all kinds of devices to them through a single port.

Let’s face it, the more ultraportable laptops get, the fewer ports you’ll likely find on them. The good news is that USB-C, in case you didn’t already know, allows you to connect all kinds of devices to them through a single port. StarTech’s new USB-C hubs and multiport adapters offer everything from simple port expansion to Power Delivery, monitor ports, Ethernet connectivity, and SD card readers.

Multiport Adapters

The new multiport adapters offer up Power Delivery 3.0 with Fast Role Swap. This feature prevents USB data disruption when switching power sources. Three new models offer various ports and features to suit specific needs.

“This new series of USB-C multiport adapters incorporates the latest laptop charging technology while also integrating the connectivity options users look for when their device is port deficient,” explains Nirav Gandhi, Vice President of Product Development at StarTech.com. “We included SD card readers because they’re missing from popular ultra slim laptops such as MacBook Pro and certain PC models. The adapters are also plug and play to ensure that they are easy to use with minimal set up. The key feature, however, is the integration of Power Delivery 3.0. This technology helps to provide the optimal user experience by not only charging your device but also by eliminating data transfer disruptions due to power switching. These adapters were designed to put the customer and their connectivity needs first.”
