While hubs can be found that adapt USB-C to many USB 3.0 ports, or to mDP etc., it seems there is no product out there that simply turns a single USB-C into two or more USB-C ports? Is there a fundamental reason why this would be impossible to do?
Belkin is selling a product (USB-C 4-Port Mini Hub) which meets your requirements:
- 2 x USB-C
- 2 x USB-A
- 5Gbps Data Transfer Speeds (shared)
- Powered through USB-C host device
- Tethered Type-C Cable for easy access
- Ultra-portable / Slim design
- Charge peripherals with 900mAh (shared)
I suppose you mean an USB 3.1 hub with USB-C on both ends. Because the USB standard does not support splitters. It always needs a hub. USB charging/power cables are the exception.
Also USB-C refers to the port not the cable itself. For example you can have USB 3.1 cable (with type C connectors) or a Thunderbolt 3 cable.
Trust and Belkin have similar mini hubs:
Trust: USB TYPE-C 4 PORTS USB3.0 HUB
Be aware, both hubs (Trust and Belkin) are USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 gbps) NOT Gen 2. So far I haven't seen a Gen 2 (10 gbps) hub
At the moment it is just to early. I can imagine that in the near future many USB 3.1 gen 2 hubs will come to market.
Just because this thread is one of the top google search results for USB-C 3.1 (and USB-C 3.1 gen 2) splitters/hubs and Thunderbolt hubs I want to provide some products that I had to search for for a long, long time.
As Mumblic pointed out the availability for splitters are somewhat limited. I looked around a bit anyways and found a couple of products (hubs!) that:
- Feature Thunderbolt 3 Charging for at least one device
- Have additional USB ports (C and/or A, at least 3.0)
- Support at least one 60Hz 4k, mostly 60Hz 5k or 2x 4k Monitors and
- cost under 350 Bucks (urgh..)
Ordered by price (low => high):
These products are still pretty expensive and for this question searching a USB-C Splitter they may be completely off topic, but given the possibilities they offer I think they may be worth the price.
I have not tested any of this products myself but there are some reviews online.
