Lockbourne, OH - March 7, 2019 - StarTech.com continues to expand their selection of USB-C display and power delivery accessories with the introduction of two new USB-C multiport adapters. These adapters focus on enhancing the road warrior experience by simplifying connectivity solutions for the business traveler so that they can be more productive. With features that include flexible video options, power delivery and convenient built-in cable management, these new multiport adapters provide mobile workers with compact solutions that eliminate the need to carry around multiple adapters and dongles.

The lightweight and compact designs of the USB-C 4-in-1 Video Adapter (CDPVDHMDPDP) and USB-C Multiport Adapter (DKT30CHVGPD) mean that they take up minimal room in a laptop bag. A magnetic wrap-around cable offers built-in cable management that removes the risk of losing a separate cable and ensures the adapters are safe and won’t be damaged during transit. Their sleek, aluminum, designs are also a perfect match for grey or space grey USB-C laptops.

The USB-C 4-in-1 Multiport Video Adapter with Power Delivery (CDPVDHMDPDP) provides users with a connection to virtually any display, anywhere. This adapter can output video to a single monitor while keeping laptops charged, allowing users to confidently walk into any boardroom or hotel desk area, without worrying about their device’s battery life or if they’ll be able to connect to the provided display. With the benefit of 4K 60Hz, it also proves to be a highly capable adapter for handling resource-demanding applications requiring UHD resolutions.

The USB-C Multiport Adapter with HDMI, VGA and Power Delivery 3.0 (DKT30CHVGPD) offers a complete on-the-go solution. This multiport adapter offers flexible video output options, easy setup, thanks to plug-and-play capabilities, as well as power delivery and access to an additional USB-A port and ethernet. By providing support for legacy VGA projection and newer HDMI based systems, it is a highly effective solution for boardroom or conference room presentations. Through including essential device connectivity (additional USB-A port and gigabit ethernet), DKT30CHVGPD also works well in small or shared workstations where space is a concern, but productivity can’t be compromised.
