Review of Anker USB-C Mini Dock - A must have for Macbook Owners!
If you own a newer model of Macbook, then you know the importance of USB-C hub adapter. The upgraded Anker’s USB-C hub has checked two of the three boxes right off the bat to make a decent USB-C hub: have all of the necessary ports, and make it look good – like real good. The third has to do with the quality of the ports within that beautiful casing, and that's where problems begin for most USB-C hubs makers. But Anker’s USB-C port is different and has the potential to the best adapter available on the market under $100 price range.
The Anker hub features six ports in total: 2 USB 3.0 Type-A ports, 1 HDMI, 1 SD Card, 1 Ethernet, and 1 USB-C port, packed into solid-feeling aluminum block. It has built in pass-through power over USB-C, high-speed internet capability, 4K HDMI output, and 5Gbps data transfer speeds. These compact hubs have full-fledged computers in them to handle all this conversion and not get in the way of data transfer. I particularly like that the USB-C port for pass-through power is at the end of the longest dimension. Couple with an 8-inch integral cord to plug into your MacBook, this gives you a lot more flexibility in placement. It’s just 3.36 ounces, making it a slight addition to your travel bag.
