PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB-C PD Media Hub: Connect your life

This wonderful hub came with just the happy card, the manual, and the hub itself, in a blue/white Anker box. I unboxed it and loved it immediately, as I only needed to use 1 port for everything. 3 months later, I will tell you how I feel about this thing. Let’s get started!


  • 1 USB-PD In port, max input 100w and max output 85w
  • 1 SD UHS-I reader slot
  • 1 microSD UHS-1 reader slot
  • 1 4K@30hz HDMI port
  • 2 USB-A 3.0/3.1 Gen 1/3.2 Gen 1 5Gbps ports
  • 1 USB-C 3.0/3.1 Gen 1/3.2 Gen 1 5Gbps data port
  • 1 White Activity light


  • Metal finish
  • 85W of PD input
  • Simultaneous SD and microSD reading
  • Fast USB 3.0 ports
  • HDMI
  • The hub is usable while using PD
  • USB-C port can charge your phone faster than USB-A ports
  • You can use USB hubs with the USB-A ports
  • Integrated cable
  • Activity light
  • Just works with everything, even phones and tablets


  • The integrated cable is not long
  • Hub reprocessed everything once PD input is removed (when inserted it works fine)
  • Can get hot to the touch under load
  • Finish attracts scratches on the bottom
  • 2 USB 3.0 ports is sometimes not enough
  • No UHS-II

Plugged into my ultrabook

Some stuff plugged in, like a PD charger

My whole OTG setup, using one port only!

Buy if…

  • You just bought an ultrabook (XPS, MacBook…)
  • You need to expand connectivity on the go
  • You want to use the sorts on your computer
  • You don’t want to break the bank
  • You dislike dongles

Don’t buy if…

  • You need more ports
  • You dislike activity lights
  • You need UHS-II

Aaaaand that is all. Have an amazing day!
