USB technology leader Plugable bets on universal compatibility, aluminum finishing and unmatched performance with its new hub debut
Plugable, a top-rated computer accessory company on Amazon and trusted resource for productivity-focused workspace essentials, announces the Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Hub, a sleek aluminum hub that provides seven ports and features a single USB-C connection. Unlike other companies’ hubs, the Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Hub was vigorously tested by Plugable’s US-based USB experts to make sure every port on the hub works simultaneously to safely deliver just the right amount of power while simultaneously charging your laptop. The hub works with MacBook Pro, HP Spectre x360, Dell XPS, Lenovo ThinkPad, and other laptops with compatible USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports.
With the Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Hub, you can easily connect an HDMI monitor, three USB devices, a microSD or full-sized SD card, and charge your laptop all through one USB-C cable. The Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Multi-function Hub with HDMI and Pass-through Charging Support is available now for $29.95 and can be purchased on Amazon, Newegg, and Walmart.
The sleek design and affordability of the Plugable USB-C 7-in-1 Hub is complemented by the company’s commitment to quality and customer service. Optimized through extensive testing and years of product development, the multiport adapter was designed by Plugable to fix the problems most commonly mentioned in real customer reviews of competitive products in the overcrowded USB-C hub category on Amazon — flakiness of DisplayPort over USB-C, lack of consistent simultaneous port functionality, unpredictability of power budgets, and damage to laptops due to poor power design.
“We have been looking closely at the USB-C hub market for years but the technology available at the time never met our standards and we didn’t want to develop a product that we weren’t proud to put the Plugable name on,” said Plugable Founder Bernie Thompson. “As members of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF), we know the USB space and hold our products to the highest quality standards. Building on the latest technology, we are able to offer a USB-C hub solution that actually delivers on its promises, inducing more reliable DisplayPort over USB-C issues, consistency in port functionality, less risk of overdrawing power, and protecting the laptop when using pass-through charging.”
Products That Are Worth The Wait
In a market crowded with unreliable brands, Plugable is offering a carefully thought out and rigorously tested alternative. The USB-C 7-in-1 Hub leverages USB-C DisplayPort Alt Mode and USB Power Delivery technologies to support an external monitor and pass-through Power Delivery, ensuring users are able to easily use and switch between all offered ports while charging their laptop, and ensuring power and work are never lost.
Sleek, Compact Workspace Alternative That Won’t Break the Bank
The new Plugable hub boasts a variety of capabilities to expand almost any work set up for under $30. Easily connect an HDMI equipped monitor, television or projector to a USB-C compatible laptop and achieve resolutions up to 4K 30Hz (3840×2160). Other popular supported resolutions include 3440×1440, 2560×1440, 1920×1200, 1920×1080 and lower.
In order to increase productivity, the 7-in-1 USB-C Hub features three USB 3.0 (5Gpbs data transfer speeds) ports and an SD and microSD card slot, making it possible to connect must-have peripherals and storage devices to keep your work in sync.
Endless Possibilities, Zero Worries
The Plugable 7-in-1 USB-C Hub has been tested on the MacBook Pro, HP Spectre x360, Dell XPS, Lenovo ThinkPad and many other systems with compatible USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports. General compatibility includes Windows, macOS and Chromebook systems with a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode, USB Power Delivery or Thunderbolt 3.
All Plugable products are backed by a 24-month limited parts and labor warranty as well as Washington-based email customer service support.
