Sometimes one port just isn’t enough for you to do all the things you need to do. In the case of the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, two ports may not be enough. Use Aukey’s 9-in-2 USB-C hub because it’s down to a low price of $41.99 when you use the code VSUAAN6H during checkout on Amazon. Without the code, the hub is selling for $60 and normally sells for that price. The $18 discount today is better than any direct price drop we’ve seen. Grab it while you can because we don’t know when this coupon will expire.
This uniquely-designed hub requires two USB-C ports back to back. They obviously need to be spaced perfectly apart, too, so the connection will fit. That means the hub won’t work with just any old computer. You’ll need a MacBook Air from 2018 or sooner or a MacBook Pro from 2016 or sooner. Those are the devices that have what this hub is looking for.
Once plugged in, this hub takes those two simple USB-C ports and turns them into nine ports that cover all the things you might need for expanding your laptop’s functionality. The nine ports include two USB-A ports for connecting peripherals like a mouse or mobile device. You’ll also get a Gigabit Ethernet port for a wired connection that may be more stable and faster than a wireless one. Read a microSD or SD card with the new media reader ports or connect two extra monitors with the two 4K HDMI ports. You’ll also get a USB-C data port and a USB-C port with Power Delivery and pass-through charging so you can keep your laptop powered up even with this hub plugged in.
The HDMI ports give you the ability to turn your one laptop workstation into a triple-monitor juggernaut. All of the data transfer ports support speeds up to 5 Gbps.
