The USB-C to Multiport adapter / dongle is an all in one solution for connecting peripheral devices to a MacBook that has only USB-C ports.
What is the best USB Type C hub?
This particular 6-in-1 adapter made by NewMight was a best seller on Amazon featuring:
- A 2.0 USB Port
- A 3.0 Type USB port for external hard drives
- An SDCard slot
- A MicroSD card slot
- An HDMI port; and
- A USB-C port
There is also a smaller 4-in-1 version of this multiport adaptor which is missing the SD Card slots. If you don’t foresee yourself working with SD Cards with your MacBook Air, then maybe that 4-in-1 adapter is more suitable for your needs.
Based on the thousands of good reviews of this product, I placed an order for it.
Multiport Adapter Features
According to the packaging, this multiport adapter can help USB-C devices such as a 10th Generation iPad or an M1 or M2 MacBook Air connect to:
- TVs, projectors, and external monitors
- Keyboards, mouse, and printers
- Flash Drives, Hard Drives, and other USB Type storage devices
- Phones and tablets
The packaging also claims to support 4K ultra HD display and provide SSD read/write speed of up to 5 GBs per second.
NewMight USB-C adaptor Build quality
This particular adapter by NewMight is built quite well. It comes with a sturdy aluminum casing and a strong braided chord for connecting to the Laptop.
I ordered this USB-C adaptor in a space grey color to match my M2 MacBook Air which I returned. I no longer have the Laptop but I still have the adaptor.
