Here’s an easy way to connect a wider range of peripherals to your laptop. This 4-port USB 3.0 hub turns your laptop’s USB-A port into three USB-A charge-and-sync ports (5Gbps), and one USB-C™ port.

Now, you can use your laptop’s traditional USB Type-A port to expand your connectivity, fast-charge your smartphone or tablet, and connect your newer USB Type-C™ device to your laptop.

Expand your USB connectivity

This USB 3.0 hub lets you expand your USB connection options using the USB-A port on your computer. (USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1.) It offers three USB-A ports and one USB-C port, so you can still connect traditional USB devices now, and be ready to connect USB Type-C devices in the future.

It’s the ideal way to connect your new USB-C equipped device to your laptop’s traditional USB-A port.

Charge and sync your mobile devices

With three fast-charge ports, this hub helps ensure that your tablets and smartphones are charged and ready to use when you need them. Each USB-A port supports USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2, so you can charge and sync up to three devices simultaneously. (The charge provided depends on the number of devices connected and the amount of power each device draws. The hub’s USB-C port does not support charging.)

Designed for versatility

This self-powered USB hub comes with an external power adapter to support power-hungry USB devices, such as larger external drives and enclosures, which require more power than USB power can provide on its own. You can install the versatile USB 3.0 hub virtually anywhere, because it takes up minimal space on a desk, and fits perfectly in hot-desk or BYOD environments.

With its compact and lightweight design, the 4-port USB hub is also ideal for mobile use. You can simply tuck the hub and power adapter into your laptop bag to expand your connectivity when you’re traveling.

Save time and money

This hub can help if you need a way to connect your newer USB-C peripherals to your existing laptop. Now you can access your USB-C device while avoiding the cost of purchasing a newer laptop that features a USB Type-C port.

The self-powered USB 3.0 hub installs quickly with no additional drivers or software required, and it’s compatible with virtually all operating systems.

The HB30A3A1CSFS is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

multitasking with power

I got this product from Startech to test and it is a great tool when you need to charge multiple items at the same time and in need of more USB ports and in my case my laptop has only 2 ports. I have tested it with my Samsung 8 and my wife's iPhone and the charge was perfect, I also could access other hardware as my external HD. Great product for a great price. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

First off, I'm a reviewer that receives sample items in exchange for an unbiased review. It so happens that I'm very fond of StarTech for many reasons but I have went out of my way to remain objective. The first part, packaging and installation. A big problem with many online retailers is that items this small come in layers of packaging and you are left with several boxes, often large. StarTech packages things in solid packaging but it never burdens you with extra boxes you will have trouble disposing of. In the same regard, the shipping is always fast, efficient and with one exception, always on time. Even when it wasn't on time it was only a day late and it was the transport company's fault. From unboxing through setup to use, it will only take you about 2 minutes on the high end. Unbox it, plug it in, let the drivers install if needed and you're ready to go. I run several computers that are mostly cloud machines, and I never have enough USB ports. WIth the advent of USB C, this was much worse. I have two new phones, my family has the same models that require USB C. The packaging for Samsung's S8 for instance, has a pronged cable that accepts a USB C male end on both sides. Without the adapter it's of limited value. However with this hub, you can charge your phone by inserting the adapter into any USB enabled computer, then plug either end of the charging cable into it. You essentially get a USB C port on your computer for free. The same obviously goes for any other device that uses USB C plugs - if your laptop doesn't natively have C ports, it will now. I use this to charge my phone, sync the phones with my laptop (which does have a C Port) and a desktop that doesn't have a C Port. This is one of the best made small hubs I've used. It's very sturdy, strong and firm. Everything fits perfectly, and I mean perfectly - as firm as it can be without any extra slack and without being too tight that it needs worn in. The other great feature is that you can use it with or without additional power. If you use the power cable, you can power several devices and re-charge things without the awful "Slow Charge warning". I'm sure some power is lost in the transfer but if you just use it directly without a computer, to charge your phone, things charge as fast as they would otherwise - at least I can't tell any discernible difference. Strong (which is critical in a portable device) , fast transfers, ability to power other devices, great fit (again, critical for a portable device if you want it to last and don't want to risk damage to your chords), this is the best hub I've had and despite getting a review item, I've purchased three more.

Just as advertised

This is a great product if you need to charge or access multiple USB devices at once. You can even charge/access a USB-C device. It has 3 USB-A ports for most devices now and even has 1 USB-C port for newer devices. It also comes with a power adapter that is not needed if you are just using it for one device but useful if charging multiple or high powered devices. The power adapter offers multiple wall plug adapters for multiple countries. Has everything you need to charge or access up to 4 devices at once.

Fast 3.0 hub, and adds USB-C port!

Added this hub to the wife's early 2016 Macbook Pro (no USB-C). It just works. being powered makes it easier to use more devices, and charge her phone! In addition, she can use some of the USB-C peripherals I've been adding to our toolbag! I do with the connecting cable was either detachable, or LONGER. She likes to keep the desk clear, so we had to use an extender cable to get this to the side. Only other critique, is to put at least one of the USB A connectors on the other side to make all ports usable when using slightly wider than normal things on the hub. Solid little hub, power cable stays attached, and the hub never feels hot even when using all the ports, including one charging a mobile device. In fact, I liked the device so much, that I've also purchased this device for a few users at work, after trying this through the review program. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Connecting USB-C peripheral devices Made Easy

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 3.0 Hub 1- Universal Power Adapter Note: “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”
