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.
Note: To ensure full adapter functionality, your laptop’s USB-C port must support USB Power Delivery and DP alt mode.
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.
If you’re tired of connecting or carrying multiple power adapters with you when you travel, then this multi-port adapter can help. It features a USB-C port that supports both USB Power Delivery 2.0 (USB PD 2.0) and data transfer, so you can use your laptop’s USB-C power adapter to power both your laptop, and the multi-port adapter or transfer data from a type-c drive to your laptop. The versatile multi-port 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.
When coupled with your laptop display, this versatile USB-C multi-port 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.

|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.|
|System and Cable Requirements||A host laptop with an available USB-C port (to ensure full adapter functionality, the host USB-C port must support USB Power Delivery 2.0 and DP alt mode)|
|Optional: USB-C power adapter (for example, your laptop’s USB-C based power adapter)|
