A must-have gadget that greatly enhances the capabilities of modern laptops with USB-C ports
. Among the new notebooks, there has been a trend of restricting the number of ports that have been deemed necessary until recently. Ports like USB-A, Ethernet, or memory card slots are becoming scarce. USB-C hubs solve this problem and allow us to freely use all of our favorite devices, such as mice, keyboards and other USB devices.
Most USB-C docking stations also allow you to connect your laptop to the TV, thanks to the HDMI port
. This is especially useful for older TV models that prevent connections via, for example, Smartcast. It is worth noting that adapters usually have a USB-C input port, so in the case of, for example, MacBook Air, which has only one USB-C port, after connecting the hub we can still charge the laptop via it. In addition you can use USB-C adapters with smartphones, to use the desktop mode – for example instead of Samsung DeX. This option allows you to connect your smartphone to the TV
and use it like a conventional laptop. Just connect the mouse and keyboard.
