Overview

Here’s a vital accessory for your USB-C™ equipped laptop. This USB-C multiport adapter lets you create a workstation while you're in the office, or when you travel. And, because it supports USB Power Delivery, you can power and charge your laptop through your USB Type-C ™ port, while simultaneously powering the adapter. It fits nicely in smaller, constrained workspaces, plus you can travel lighter and more conveniently using just a single power adapter instead of multiple.

Now, you can create a permanent or temporary workstation, virtually anywhere. Plus, it’s one of the first USB-C adapters to integrate power delivery, making it a must-have accessory if you have a USB-C charged laptop, Chromebook™, or MacBook.

Easy-to-use USB-C cable

This multiport USB-C adapter converts the video, data, and power input capabilities of your laptop’s USB-C port into five individual ports. With additional connectivity, you can save money and use the adapter with your existing peripherals, instead of having to purchase new devices. Plus, it offers a built-in, easy-to-use USB Type-C cable, so you will be able to connect to your laptop without having to carry around a separate host cable.

The next-generation USB-C cable is small and reversible, which makes it easier to insert into your laptop. You can connect the plug with either side facing up, so there’s less risk of damaging your laptop port. Plus, because it uses USB-C, the adapter is Thunderbolt™ 3 port compatible, so you can connect it to your Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptop.

Now, you can spend more time working, and less time setting up your workstation.

More convenience with power and port design

If you’re tired of connecting or carrying multiple power adapters with you when you travel, then this multiport adapter can help. It features a USB-C port that supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 (USB PD 2.0), so you can use your laptop’s USB-C power adapter to power both your laptop, and the multiport adapter.

The versatile multiport adapter is compact and lightweight, making travel easier and more convenient, so you can set up a workstation virtually anywhere you work or visit. Because it consolidates multiple ports into a single adapter, you eliminate the need to connect or travel with multiple single-function adapters.

The adapter’s extended-length cable provides you with more desk placement options, which makes it easier to create a comfortable, space-efficient work area. The 34 cm (13 in.) cable lets you place the adapter exactly where you need it. The cable is long enough to reach your laptop or tablet’s USB Type-C port, regardless of where the port is located. Now, you can eliminate the frustration of having a host cable that's too short to reach your laptop’s port location.

Easily connect a 4K Ultra HD display, and two USB 3.0 devices

When coupled with your laptop display, this versatile USB-C multiport adapter makes it easy to create a dual-monitor workstation when you need it. It offers a 4K HDMI® (with audio) port, so you can easily connect a high-resolution monitor and gain access to more screen space. With higher resolutions, you can view more windows at once and increase your overall productivity.

With two additional USB 3.0 ports, as well as Gigabit Ethernet, the adapter gives you the vital connectivity you need when you're in the office or when you travel. And because it features USB-A ports, you can connect your current peripherals and avoid the added cost of purchasing a newer USB-C device.

The DKT30CHPD is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Note: To ensure full adapter functionality, your laptop’s USB-C port must support USB Power Delivery and DP alt mode.

Applications

Power the adapter and your laptop through USB-C, using your laptop’s power adapter

Connect your laptop to a projector and enjoy multimedia content at home, or display engaging presentations in boardrooms and classrooms

Special Notes / Requirements
Note Not all USB-C ports support the full functionality of the USB Type-C standard. Ensure that your host USB-C port supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 and DP alt mode.
The adapter can connect to a host laptop’s USB-C port that doesn’t support USB Power Delivery 2.0. However, in this configuration if a power adapter is connected to the multifunction adapter, it will not pass power through to your host laptop.
A 4K-capable display is required to achieve 3840 x 2160p resolution (4K is also known as 4K x 2K)
USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1; this connectivity standard offers speeds up to 5Gbps.
Your laptop might have specific charging requirements. For example, if your laptop requires exactly 60W of power and an adapter consumes some of the 60W, your laptop might not recognize that it is getting enough power. For more information about Power Delivery, refer to the manufacturer of your hardware.

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a laptop docking station, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video source

  • Video destination

  • Laptop Docking Station

  • USB peripherals

  • Ethernet Connection

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the video cables, video source, video destination, laptop docking station, USB peripherals, and Ethernet connection in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different video cable, video source, video destination, laptop docking station, USB peripherals, and Ethernet connection setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video cables, video source, video destination, and laptop docking station it is recommended that you do the following:

  1. Press the Windows key + R, type devmgmt.msc, and press Enter to open Device Manager.

  2. If you do not see the USB video adapter in Device Manager, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/support/faqs/technical-support?topic=expansion-cards#usb-cannot-detect-windows.

  3. If the device is listed with an error, reinstall the drivers following the instructions on the website.

  4. Check to see if your video card drivers are current. You can check what video card you have in Device Manager under Display adapters. It is recommended that you go directly to the video card manufacturer's website to check for the latest drivers.

(5 stars) Full compatible with Dell XPS

By:
I did a test with this product for 3 months and it works very well on my Dell XPS 13. The Lan and HDMI does its job perfectly and I had no issues. Its a nice way to get a dock station for a small space. I like it. “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”

(4 stars) Works well except for annoying Macbook reboot bug

By:
Just like the other reviewer said, it works great except that with a 2016 Macbook Pro 15" you need to reboot in order for the HDMI monitor connection to work. Otherwise it shows as connected on the Macbook but the external monitor screen is black. After a reboot it works fine. Charging works fine. And yes the USB-C cable from the dock could be another 2-4 feet longer as you need to keep the dock fairly close to the Macbook. StarTech - is this a driver issue? Have you looked into it?

(3 stars) When it works, it's fine.

By:
I have an issue where the monitor connected to the HDMI port won't display after waking from sleep. I have a 2016 MacBook Pro and it shows the monitor is connected, but the screen stays black. The only way to get it to come back on is to reboot the machine. I've tested different cables and ports on the MBP, but nothing works.

(5 stars) Works great on the new Macbook

By:
Simple little device that provides HDMI, ethernet and a couple USB3.0 ports. Download the drivers from StarTech's website (it's a little file), unzip, run the Mac installer pkg, restart, and it just works. On one of my Macs, after installing the drivers, the OS froze on bootup. But a quick "turn it off and on again" made that go away, and the device works flawlessly. On a Dell laptop, that same downloaded zip file had the Linux and Windows drivers, both of which worked without issue. The adapter can be used with or without the laptop's power passing through. With power connected, everything works, AND the laptop charges. Just be sure to disconnect the StarTech device, then either connect/disconnect power, and then reconnect to the laptop. If you remove power from the StarTech device while it's driving HDMI, the laptop will think external video is connected still, but nothing will show on the external monitor. So resetting the device, as noted, brings everything back. A removable or longer USB-C cord would be really great here, as having to run the network and HDMI cables right up to the laptop due to the short USB-C cable is a little ugly, but.... Let's face it, the device does what it is supposed to do. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Like a mini docking station!

By:
With two USB 3.0 ports, gigabit ethernet and HDMI, the USB-C multifunction adapter for laptops is like a mini docking station for users on the move! Whether you are travelling, visiting customer / client sites or just going to different work facilities the multifunction adapter has it all in a small for factor (fits in my hand). It does need a usb c power source which is not included but laptop or cell phone chargers will work just fine. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Great all-in-one adapter

By:
This adapter is small enough to travel with, but has all the features I need in the office. My Dell Ultrabook has its own power adapter, but I was happy to see that this adapter could charge it through the USB-C port as well, saving me from having to look at a second adapter. The Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI and 2x USB3 are all I need, and I can’t get over how small it is for all the features. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review
