(1 star) could not connect

By: nw1923
It would not stay connected. Tiniest movement would make it disconnect, then it would need to be in a very specific position to reconnect. Better off buying a $45 adapter off of amazon (which also includes hdmi and sd card ports).

(3 stars) Good hub but no return USB-C power

By: NickD_CA22
I have used this hub on several phones and computers for the past several weeks. I have not had any compatibility issues and it connects quickly. The hub itself is pretty small, about the size of a package of gum or breath mints. It comes with an AC adaptor so the box it much bigger and heavier than expected for just a hub. The AC adaptor comes with different ends so it can be used in different countries. The AC adaptor is only needed to power USB-A devices. The hub will NOT power the USB-C device I connect. The hub has a light on the top to indicate that it is powered which is extremely bright. You wouldn't want to leave it connected in a bedroom or dark board room as it is very distracting. The product description was a little confusing for me as I thought it would provide USB-C power to keep my devices (phone/laptop) charged while connected. This is not the case as the power is only for USB-A devices that require more power. The hub also has a USB-C port which I also thought may be able to pass though power from my charger. I tested this and confirmed that it will not do this. I have to choose between using the hub and charging my device. I have not had any issues using devices I connect to the hub. Everything is recognized quickly and works very quick. Even using 2.5" USB drives works well with the power on the hub. The hub works very well other than the issue charging my phone/laptop. If it could charge my device, even with pass through power from the other USB-C port it would be many times better. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) USB3 to USBA Hub Made Easy

By: jimh12
I have been in the AV/IT Integration space for over 30 years. I found this unit easy to setup and use on my Microsoft, Android and Apple devices. This unit has the ability to simultaneously fast-charge up to three mobile devices, all three USB-A ports. The USB Hub is both self-powered and comes with an external power adapter to support various small and large USB devices, which require more power than USB power can provide on its own. The unit installs quickly with no additional drivers or software required, and is compatible with a variety of operating systems, which I tested. What is Included: 1 - 4-Port USB 3.1 Hub 1- Universal Power Adapter Note: “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”

(4 stars) Great hub and standalone charging hub.

By: Nick60
Great hub. Small, power adapter stays connected (many cheaper hubs have been tried, and the power connector always seems to be loose!), and great throughput. Charges phones, tablet, etc. as long as power adapter is connected. A longer or detachable USB-C cord would be a nice touch, as the attached cable is stiff and getting the hub to lay flat or in the direction desired isn't easy. Works great with Macbook and Dell laptops. Two critiques: 1) Pass-through power would be great as a standard function on all devices like this, instead of having to select one based on this feature being available or not. 2. Place at least one of the USB-A ports on the end or opposite side, to accommodate larger devices. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(1 star) Doesn't charge MacBook Pro

By: Willi1659
I bought this solution to have in 1 adapter USB and power charger, but it doesn't work as power charger with MAcBook Pro, neither if you connect the original Apple charger to USB-C included in the adapter.

Barr, Customer Support
Hello, Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Did the hub itself work properly with regular USB A and C devices? The reason this hub, and others like it will not charge your MacBook is due to the absence of USB Power Delivery. Without this functionality, the hub will not pass the power from the USB C input through to the PC on the other side of the hub. Here is the excerpt from our Technical Specifications which outline this limitation; The hub does not support DP Alt Mode or USB Power Delivery. When USB-charged devices are connected to the hub, the provided charge output depends on the number of devices connected, and the amount of power current each devices draws. The hub’s USB-C port does not support charging. If you are looking for a USB hub with power delivery, have a look here: https://www.startech.com/Cards-Adapters/USB-3.0/Hubs/?filter_HUBSPECIALFEAT=USB+Power+Delivery We hope that helps explain the reason your MacBook was not charging with this particular hub. Thank you
