Where To Buy

Overview

This compact USB 3.0 hub lets you add four USB-A ports to your laptop, with support for USB power delivery. This means that you can power and charge your laptop through its USB-C™ port while simultaneously powering the hub.

With its integrated USB Type-C™ cable and small-footprint design, this versatile hub offers a perfectly portable solution for connecting devices that require traditional USB Type-A ports to your USB-C or Thunderbolt™ 3 equipped computer.

Take it with you wherever you go

With its compact and rugged design, you can take this portable USB 3.0 hub anywhere you go. Because it’s so compact, it’s easy to tuck into your laptop bag and only takes up a small amount of desk space when you connect it to your workstation. For portable applications, having the integrated host (USB-C) cable means one less thing to remember to carry with you.

Carry fewer cables and power adapters

This USB-C 3.0 hub supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 pass-through up to 60W to power and charge your laptop. Now, instead of carrying multiple cables and power adapters, you can use your laptop’s USB-C power adapter to power both your laptop and the hub. By using just a single power adapter instead of two, you can eliminate clutter and hassle when you work.

Add four USB 3.0 ports in seconds

This USB hub is multi-platform compatible, which means it will work with a wide range of USB-C laptops that use a USB-C power adapter. It also works with a range of operating systems such as Windows®, macOS, Linux® and Chrome OS™. It installs automatically once you connect it to your laptop, so you can be up and running in seconds.

The HB30C4AFPD is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

Carry the hub with you while you're traveling, to connect virtually any USB peripheral to your laptop wherever you go

Power both the hub and your laptop simultaneously, using your laptop’s USB-C based power adapter

Use the USB-C port on your port-limited laptop, Ultrabook™, Chromebook Pixel™, or MacBook to expand your connection options by adding extra USB-A ports

(5 stars) Small but Mighty

By:
USB-A devices are still the norm so when I bought a device that only had a USB-C connection on it, I was not able to charge or access any of my USB-A devices like smart phones and memory sticks. This device allowed me to do just that with 4 USB-A connections on it to boot. The USB-C cable comes attached so you can never loose it and the adapter is small enough even to fit in your pocket if you need to. The adapter feels solid and well made. Solved my problem. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Small, portable usb hub!

By:
This is a nice and small usb 3.0 hub offering one usb-c to 4 USB-a ports and one usb-c for power delivery to charge your laptop. I tested this unit with my pc and had no problems at all with this unit. My charger plugged into the usb-c port and still charged my laptop. Having standard USB-A ports is something any ultrabook user is going to appreciate. Excellent product ! "I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review"
