What are your thoughts on this adapter? Would any of your devices be compatible with it? Let us know everything you’re thinking by dropping a reply!
it looks interesting, just a little expensive
Looks nice, but no power delivery to power laptops. At this price range, I would go for other hubs that support PD fast charging of laptops and other USB C devices.
Maybe you missed it, but it does have USB-C Power Delivery charging port—all in one hub, its 60w charging capable
Quoting from the amazon product description:
The hub delivers a 49W for charging the connected laptop and 11W for powering the hub when connected to a 60W power input
@AnkerTechnical, if I am reading this right, there is 11W of overhead. Does this mean that when the adapter is plugged into a >60W source, more will be available to an attached USB-PD consumer?
What version of HDMI, 1.4, 2, 2.1? What are the 4k capabilities?
May I suggest a DisplayPort version be considered? I’m hard pressed to overstate the productivity advantages of multiple, daisy-chained displays for many types of workers. Dropping any notebook on the desk and connecting up to a set of 4k displays with one cable would be fantastic.
Is there a live link to an Anklet.com product page?
I will never buy this product because of reasons already mentioned by others.
I don’t want junk all over the place so I want my stuff to be multi-functional.
I would only consider this product if all ports are able to output 3A+, simultaneously.
I look at it more as a simple USB dock instead of a charger. Possible use case: AC power to monitor, USB-C to 7in1, USB-PD out to notebook, and stock USB 3 to peripherals , e.g. keyboard, mouse, portable drive.
Your point about charging capability is relevant given high demand peripherals like drives & mobiles. That said, there is worthwhile capability in the device.
Right now I don’t have a use for it. But I do like the fact that if I had a USB-C cellphone or tablet I could take my SD card out my camera and transfer data over to my cellphone. This would be easier than turning wi-fi on my camera and pair it with my phone and then move the files over.
I also like that it has HDMI so I could stream a movie from my cellphone to my dumb TV without having move my Chromecast to another TV if I want to watch a movie on a different TV.
Omg I’ve been waiting for this for a while it looks so good plus is that a case I see with it
True, it’s much more than nothing. So that’s certainly good. But considering the price of Anker products I would like to see a little extra.
Anker’s build quality matches the higher price. But Anker’s usability lags their prices a bit. That’s room for improvement.
