Thought I'd share.
Thanks for info!
All coming soon.... and no way to get details ... at least it's not a kickstarter project
Anker USB-C to 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Ethernet Adapter - 30$!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I found the graal
You can say that again!
I like anker products. I use their batteries and chargers. I'm sure this will be top quality stuff
and a good indicator that more is coming; more adapters, flash drives, hard drives....
Any that will charge as well as being a hub?
- They have a few hubs with USB-C on them in addition to USB-A. I wonder if those C ports can receive power and then route it to the rMB?
Thank goodness Anker is coming with a USB-C lineup. I got some of the cables from Chinese companies and none of them worked (I live in Japan and Amazon Japan has its limitations.)
Holy crap they have a USB-C output external batteries!? This is gonna be AWESOME!
for those curious, the name is 'PowerCore+ USB-C 26800' under PowerCore USB-C series.
Yeah anker imo is a very reputable company. I've enjoyed many products from them.
And no I'm not paid by them lol
Does not appear to me they released a darn thing.
I can see your point. When I first spotted this thread I was expecting to see news of a new battery pack with USB-C connectivity.
But how do you get power to the MacBook with it?
This 30$ device is just a spare USB/Ethernet when needed (exactly like I cary my thunderbolt-ethernet today.
I don't need the charger when plugged.
But look at the rest of the lineup, they will release all our dreams!
Docks with only once cable for all, battery/usb hub, etc..
As I love the quality of their product (and the prices as well), i'm very enthusiast to see them coming on this market
It needs to have power capability. I've been working at a customer site for the past month with my Surface Pro 3 where I'm provided only with Ethernet. I have a usb-ethernet adapter with 3 USB ports similar to this, but if I couldn't charge at the same time, it'd be a major PITA. As it is, I still want USB-C on this device so I could have more power through those USB hubs without yet another power brick.
I really should learn not to post until I'm fully awake in the mornings! I've just noticed that they do list a number of new generation external battery packs with fast charging via USB-C.
They are all 'coming soon' though. Story of my life since the release of the rMB. Exciting prospect nevertheless.
There is one. It's called PowerCore+ USB-C.
Oops sry, Didn't see your last post. Looks like I have the same problem haha. On topic, yea, it's listed coming soon for all of them. Wish they release them quickly.
they will release one, but still to be annouced:
USB-C to 2-Port USB 3.0 and 1-Port USB-C Hub with Ethernet Adapter
No, that's not what I mean.
The closest thing they are listing is that PowerPort+ 1 USB-C and 3 USB. Wish they'd take that a bit further and offer Ethernet on it as well - otherwise you need a dongle for your dongle.
oh lets see if the dock is doing it
I have a non-charging version from the same supplier. Sure, it's cheaply made, but it's priced accordingly, and may be useful in a pinch.
60 retail, but 17. One strange review (4 ports? You need plug it in?) Might wait it out and see
When a seller puts multiple "versions" of devices under one listing (even if they aren't really different versions) then all reviews for all versions are aggregated. Checking that review you can see that it is for a four-port hub without power capability. "Plug in fully" is what it says, not "plug it in". Unfortunately when sellers do this, a lot of the reviews then get tagged as "not helpful" and the reviewer's rating suffers and can end up discouraging participation in reviewing.
Although that seller's other suspicious reviews and listing behavior might steer me away, I don't think that review is particularly suspect (even though "Ann"'s information might be).
Not sure if anybody has seen these, but there are two Kickstarter projects that are offering USB-C to Lightning cables. They are only capable of charging though, so it doesn't eliminate the need for the adapter.
Monoprice also has a new USB-C to USB adapter that looks interesting, it gets rid of the cable: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=103&cp_id=10330&cs_id=1033001&p_id=13507&seq=1&format=2
