Please report back on how well it works. I was interested in the same kind of thing for a hub but saw lots of reviews on similar products that said users were having data connectivity issues.Thanks! Your suggestion got me thinking that I needed this, but did not have a cable long enough which where my hub would completely rest on the desk without hanging at least a little bit. So I ordered this cable that will be waiting for me today when I arrive home:
No reviews on Amazon but I'll see how it goes. I couldn't find any "name brand" cables with a right angle male at one end and a female usb c port on the other end.
I used the cable I linked above 5-6 times this weekend and so far, so good! It does take a little longer for drives to show up in the Files app on iPadOS 13 compared to directly connecting the device but that makes sense I guess. I'd say maybe around 5 seconds longer... I used it with my Samsung T5 external SSD, my Sandisk card reader, and also with my Anker powered hub with USB C power, a micro SD card and two external drives plugged in. It was charging the iPad and I could use all the drives. I didn't notice any additional speed lag once connected.Please report back on how well it works.
