Can't read chinese, but they announced a new USB-C hub.
One of many to come. Some compatible, some not so much.
The main question I have is: Can it charge the rMB? Since the Apple dongle seems to only allow charging on the USB-C port (and not allow another dongle or device to attach to the USB-C port on it), this hub - while finally allowing USB/Displayport on the rMB will only work for as long as you have battery charge.
So you're saying you can't use any USB C accessories on the USB C port on the Apple dongle? You can only charge through that?
According to Apple's page, you can only charge on the port. It is a bit vague though so may be some enterprising individual can try daisy chaining the $79 dongles together and see if that works.
If that's true I may have to cancel my multiport adaptor order and just grab googles $40 hdmi now
Looks nice - I'm excited to see these things flow out like water. This is going to be a fun time when us Apple people can actually use an open standard for charging / data.
If a user needs that many ports, the rMB is not the laptop for them.
- It was confirmed on page three of this thread that the USB-C port is strictly for charging (direct link to post).
No way now I'm paying Apple $79+tax for their dongle. I'll wait for a docking station for my wife's rMB.
Wtf was Apple thinking. So now I can't use a normal USB accessory and a USB-C accessory with their port.
i wonder how much Yoobao usb-c digital av adapter will cost.
While I'd love to get a "real" USB hub for my rMB (I'm holding out for the OWC one), I have the Apple dongle I use at home and it works great. When I'm on the run, I bring a USB C to USB A adapter by Satechi (also works great) so I can plug in USB devices as needed.
