I have a Lenovo Miix 720, which has a single USB-C port through which it gets power. I want to attach an AOC I1601FWUX, which is a USB-C portable monitor. If I use a straight-through USB-C cable, the laptop powers the monitor and I have no way to power the laptop. That setup won't last long before I have to recharge the laptop.

What I need is a powered hub that has at least two USB-C ports (I think Gen 1 is good enough) and that can deliver power to both. Haven't found one yet. Anyone know of such a hub?

The Arc Hub can supposedly do this, but it's expensive, as such hubs are still relatively new.

  • No, this does not do what I need. It has 2 USB-C ports and does not get its power another way. So I cannot power the hub and make a connection between two USB-C devices, powering those two devices from the hub. Commented Apr 5, 2018 at 23:24
