It seems silly that we're into 2020 and it's more of a struggle to connect multiple devices to your computer now than it has been in years. Everything needs to be plugged in and your computer probably doesn't have enough ports to handle it all. But you don't have to replace your peripherals with new gadgets that can connect wirelessly. Instead, invest $10 into this SMK-Link 4-Port USB-C Hub and do more with the space you already have. It typically costs up to $25, but today only it is down to $9.99 as a B&H deal of the day.
This slim USB hub turns a single USB-C port into four USB-A ports. It supports data transfers, too, with speeds up to 5Gbps. That's fast enough to transfer an HD movie in just a few seconds. Blue LEDs next to each USB port let you know you are connected at a glance. It has a slim and lightweight footprint, so it won't take up too much room on your desk either.
A hub like this provides spaces for your phone charger, Bluetooth mouse receivers, flash drives, and much more. It's important to note that it connects via USB-C, though, so not all laptops are going to be compatible with it. That being said, it works with Windows laptops, MacBooks, and Chromebooks as long as they feature a USB-C port (which most newer models do).
Take the hub anywhere. Use it in your home, your office, or on the go. Keep it in your backpack or your purse. It's a small hub with minimal weight and designed to be ultra-slim and sleek so it can go with you.
