With the new MacBook Pro, Apple relies on the USB-C connection, making adapters and dongles for connecting USB-A plugs (up to 3.0 or 3.1) without an alternative. If you are looking for a cheap USB-C adapter so that you can continue to use your USB-A equipment, then I have put together the right products for you here.

If you want to continue to use the USB-C port of the MacBook Pro for USB-C devices as well as for other devices and for a network, then this multifunctional hub from ProLink is recommended. It is connected via USB-C and has ports for USB-C, USB-A, VGA and Ethernet / LAN. But this is also reflected in the price.
The advantage of this cable from the high quality manufacturing company Anchor is that the connection is not rigid as with simple adapters, but flexible. This makes it ideal to work with the MacBook Pro late 2016 and USB-A devices even in tight spaces. The price is okay for that, I think.
