Best USB-C Hubs and adapters for Macbook review

With the release of a new generation of MacBooks, a serious problem has emerged. You do not need to be an expert to anticipate the emergence of a huge number of accessories for the new MacBook. And since its main disadvantage is the lack of ports – it’s easily fixed by USB-C hubs, we chose the top eight of them.

1. USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter – check the price

The long name hides the standard USB-C hub from Apple, which appeared simultaneously with the release of the new MacBook. Its functionality leaves much to be desired: only three ports (USB-C, HDMI and USB 3.0) – this is not what you want for a rather large price.


  • 1 USB 3.0 port
  • 1 HDMI video output
  • 1 USB-C port


2. Anker USB-C to 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub – check the price

4-port hub by Anker is an inexpensive option for users of modern MacBooks and Ultrabooks based on Windows 10. It has only 4 USB 3.0 ports, but it’s good for such a price and high quality of the aluminum body.
