USB Type-C is something we are seeing a lot more, not just on motherboards, but on laptops as well. The Type-C connection not only is smaller, but is also the same connection use for Thunderbolt 3. With many new laptops opting for USB Type-C and having Thunderbolt 3 there is a lot of bandwidth there that really is not used, especially when it comes to Ultrabooks. The common thing now with Ultrabooks is to have two Type-C ports and possibly one other normal Type-A port. That is really limiting if you want to connect more than one device. Also one thing that seems to be missing from most new Ultrabooks is a card reader. So that is where the new USB Type-C hubs come in and today we are checking out the Havit HV-TCP68, which gives you three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a card reader, HDMI, and a Type-C port which can be used for charging. Let’s see if it is the perfect accessory for your Ultrabook.
– 3 x USB 3.0 ports that each one provides 5Gbps of data transfer speed
– 1 x HDMI port that stream video with up to 4K of resolution along with audio signal
– 1 x SD/SDHC high speed card adapter that support up to 2TB of card memory
– 1 x Power Delivery charging port that charge your laptop with intelligently adjusted charging speed
The HV-TPC68 comes in a normal retail box with a photo of the hub on the front and it lets us know the hub can be used with a new Macbook Air and other computers with Type-C ports.
On the back we have some features and specifications listed, we do find out the hub is compatible with Mac OSX, Windows 10, and Chrome OS.
Getting everything out of the box we have the HV-TCP68 Hub and user’s manual.
