Volans Aluminium USB-C to 3-Port USB3.0 Hub + RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
The Volans aluminium USB-C to 3-Port USB3.0 Hub + RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (HJ45-C) is a perfect device for both on the go and desktop application. The 2-in-one device works as a 3-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hub and a Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. It gives you access to a Gigabit Ethernet Port for connecting your Laptop/Ultrabook/Tablet to a wired Ethernet network and also add 3 spare USB 3.0 ports, which can be used to connect HDD, Keyboard/Mouse, Printers, Phones, Tablets etc. The device is bus powered (host powered) with no external power supply required to run it.
Take advantage of USB-C
This dynamic USB 3.0 hub integrates an easy-to-use USB Type-C™ connector. It’s small and reversible, which makes for easier insertions, and you can connect the plug with either side facing up, which means less risk of damaging your ports and less frustration.
While your USB-C equipped laptop, or MacBook is lightweight and portable, it might be missing vital connectivity ports, such as wired Internet. Because this hub offers a Gigabit Ethernet port, you can connect to a network in locations were Wi-Fi® is unreliable or unavailable.
Compact design for portability or permanent placement
With a small footprint and lightweight aluminium housing, you can easily tuck the hub and the included power adapter into your laptop bag to expand your connectivity when you’re travelling.
Plus, the compact USB 3.0 hub takes up minimal space on a desk, so it fits perfectly in office, hot-desk (short-term guest), and BYOD workstation environments.
Extended-length cable eliminates aggravation
The hub’s built-in USB cable is long enough to reach your laptop or tablet’s USB 3.0 port, regardless of where the port is located. Now, you can eliminate the worry and frustration when your hub’s built-in cable is too short and doesn’t reach your laptop’s USB port location.
Plus, the extended-length cable provides you with more desk placement options, which makes it easier to create a comfortable, space-efficient work area.
Save money and time
This easy-to-use hub is native supported in most operating systems, and you can install it quickly, without having to install additional drivers or software. You can also avoid the nuisance and cost of purchasing new devices, by using the USB 3.0 hub with your current USB 2.0 and 1.x devices.
