No computer ever seems to have enough ports, so USB hubs are one thing. But forget these weak 4-port hubs. I have the ultimate USB hub, especially if you want to run multiple monitors: the Aukey 12-in-1 USB-C hub. And while it usually costs $ 70, you can get that nowwith discount code N6U46LHV at checkout.
The Aukey 12-in-1 USB-C hub is so full of connectors that it looks almost like a parody of a USB hub. It is covered on three sides with different connections. It does not contain in any particular order:
- 4 USB-A ports
- 2 USB-C ports (one is a 100-watt power connector)
- 2 HDMI ports
- 1 ethernet port
- 1 VGA connector
- 1 SD card slot
- 1 micro SD card slot
This is a crazy amount of ports and offers a lot of flexibility. For example, on a Windows system, you can run a full triple monitor rig using two HDMI ports (or one HDMI and one VGA port) to drive two additional monitors. One of the USB-C ports is a full 100-watt PD connection, so a laptop can be charged. Two of the USB-A ports are USB 3.0 compatible and deliver 5 Gbit / s. The Ethernet connection supports speeds of up to one gigbit – ideal for these modern laptops that have no Ethernet at all.
The whole thing is connected to your PC, laptop or Mac via a USB-C connection and is a hub without power supply, which makes it relatively portable, since there is no power adapter to take with you.
