It seems that the days when laptops were equipped with many ports for connecting a wide variety of peripherals are irrevocably gone. More and more universal solutions are being used. So, through the USB-C port, you can both transfer data and a video image, and recharge. But what if the number of a wide variety of devices (flash drives, memory cards, USB-gadgets) significantly exceeds the number of universal laptop ports? And how to ensure the compatibility of old interfaces with the new one? Multiport adapters come to the rescue, such as the Satechi Multi-Port Adapter 4K with Ethernet V2.
♥ BY TOPIC: Satechi Trio Wireless Charging Pad is a wireless charging station for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods.
The American manufacturer Satechi already had experience in creating high-quality multiport USB-C adapters. The new V2 model still supports many peripherals, but provides a more stable connection and stable data transfer.
Design Satechi Multi-Port Adapter 4K with Ethernet V2
The device has a stylish, ergonomic design received a durable body made of lightweight aluminum alloy. On the wide, long edge, there are three ports for connecting USB-A devices and an HDMI connector, and on the narrow edge there are readers for microSD and SD cards.
On the side faces there is an Ethernet port for connecting to computer networks, a USB-C PD port for power supply and a short 15 cm cable for connecting to a computer.
The device has received three color options that match the colors of Apple laptops: space gray, silver and gold. It should be noted that only the silver color version is completely painted in a single color, the sides of the adapter versions in gray and gold are black.
Functionality of the multiport adapter Satechi Multi-Port Adapter 4K with Ethernet V2
No external power is required for the adapter to operate – it will receive everything it needs from a connected computer or laptop via a reversible USB-C connector (compatible with Thunderbolt 3), which allows you to simultaneously use 5 peripheral devices, 2 memory cards, and also connect to an Ethernet local network … In addition, the functionality of the USB-C interface is also not lost: the adapter is equipped with a pass-through port of this type, allowing, for example, to recharge a compatible device.
The microSD card slot has been slightly redesigned. Now, when the media is placed correctly, you can feel a click, which is a notification of the correct location of the drive.
The multiport adapter allows you to transfer a picture with 4K resolution through the HDMI port. To do this, you just need to connect the cable from the adapter to the monitor and get a clear image. At maximum resolution, a frequency of 30 Hz is provided. For the circuit to work, it is best to use an HDMI 2.0 cable and connect directly from the adapter to the monitor’s HDMI port. Displaying a picture with a resolution of 1080p is possible at a frequency of 144 Hz.
The device allows you to charge other gadgets with a maximum output power of 60W. The operating temperature is in the range from 30 to 50 degrees Celsius.
More and more, modern ports are lacking a full-fledged Ethernet port. A universal USB-C port and similar solutions from Satechi come to the rescue. This device allows wired Internet access at speeds up to 1 Gbps. All you need to do is connect the adapter to the router with an Ethernet cable.
