This tiny USB Type-C to HDMI adapter is perfect for travel

I have a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter that I use to connect my 12-inch MacBook to an LG 29″ monitor on my desk. The size of that adapter doesn’t matter to me because it never leaves the desk. But if I carried a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter with me in my gear bag …

New Satechi Type-C Pro Hub for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros offers connectivity in a slim package

I recently sold my 13″ MacBook Pro to a friend at work after having purchased a refurbed 12″ MacBook. You might think that’s a step in the wrong direction going from the powerful MBP to a slower MB. But I absolutely love the MB because it’s small, lightweight, and does everything I need in a …

IOGEAR USB-C Ultra-Slim Dual Display Docking Station review

Recently Julie and I both purchased 12″ MacBooks and while extremely light and portable, the sleek and slim laptop is lacking in ports to say the least.

SCOSCHE introduces new USB-C hub with AV features

Some newer laptops like Apple’s latest MacBook Pro use a USB-C port for both charging and connecting to accessories. But without USB TYPE-A connectors (which I guess is what we’re supposed to call the “old” style USB 2.0 and 3.0 connectors), how do you charge your iPhone, Nexus 6P or other USB-A devices?

COTEetCI Type-C Smart Phone Charge Base review

Since switching to the Nexus 6P last fall, I’ve gone from charging with the included Type-C cable, to charging wirelessly using a Qi wireless patch from Astore. The wireless patch worked fine and allowed me to use my existing Qi chargers, but left the Type-C port on the phone unusable and a little plastic bump …

SOJITEK Universal Detachable Magnetic Charging Cable and USB Type-C adapter review

I’ve been enjoying my Nexus 6P for a few months now, but I still miss the convenience of wireless charging. During the day it’s no big deal to plug in a cable, but at night I just set the phone next to me on the night stand so that I can easy pick it up …
