I have been looking for a USB-C hub with Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0 and a charging USB-C port.

However, I couldn’t find one. I wonder if USB-C could deliver this. Is it possible?

  • What device are you trying to find this for? – Yisroel Tech Jun 25 '19 at 1:32
  • @YisroelTech I own a MacBook Air (2018) – Valerio Jun 25 '19 at 14:38
  • What do you mean "charging USB-C port", to charge a device or to charge the MacBook though it? – Yisroel Tech Jun 25 '19 at 15:22
  • @YisroelTech I mean a USB-C port to which I can connect the laptop power adapter and charge the laptop. – Valerio Jun 25 '19 at 15:58
  • I'm fairly sure that you will have better luck finding a hub with DisplayPort rather than HDMI 2.0. USB-C does not support HDMI 2.0 at all so your specific requirements are not possible unless it's actually a Thunderbolt hub (with a graphics device inside it). – Romen Nov 22 '19 at 18:27

The Purgo 7-in-2 USB C Hub Adapter for MacBook Pro 2019/2018-2016, MacBook Air 2018/2019, with Gigabit Ethernet, 4K HDMI, 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3, 100W PD, 2 USB 3.0 and SD/Micro Card Readers seems to have all the things you were looking for.

  • High-Speed Internet Connection - Access to reliable wired Internet connection speeds up to 1000Mbps. Also works on 10M/100Mbps networks.
  • Crystal Clear 4K Resolution - Equipped with both HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 ports. HDMI supports up to 4K @ 30Hz, Thunderbolt 3 supports up to 5K @ 60Hz or two 4K @ 60Hz displays.
  • Strong Power Delivery - Support up to 100W power delivery to charge both 13” (61W) and 15” (87W) MacBook Pro at full speed while having all data ports in use and delivering up to 4.5W (5V/900mA) of power per USB 3.0 port.

  • thanks but it has HDMI 1.4 and not 2.0 (HDMI supports up to 4K @ 30Hz and not 60Hz). – Valerio Jun 25 '19 at 17:01
  • Oops, that's correct (it didn't say the HDMI version so I was thrown off). There is no available option with HDMI 2.0. Such a thing does not exist. – Yisroel Tech Jun 25 '19 at 17:44
  • it does not exist because nobody made one or because it is not possible to make one? – Valerio Jun 26 '19 at 11:23

    @Valerio, As of right now only HDMI 1.4b is supported over USB C. HDMI 2.0 may be supported later. USB-C still supports 4k 60hz with DisplayPort and you can convert DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 with the right adapter. – Romen Jul 18 '19 at 20:38
