Chapter in this post:
When the then 2015-inch MacBook with USB-C was introduced by Apple in 12, the connection had not really become fashionable. But now there are already plenty of devices that have a USB Type C 3.1 connection in addition to the MacBook or iMac, even outside of the Apple universe. However, hubs, adapters and dongles have become essential there, especially with the MacBook / MacBook Pro. Without a hub, USB-A devices, HDMI-Do not connect monitors, Ethernet cables, etc. Here I have put together a selection for you. A little extra: Amazon's bestseller list.
If you stop by here in the blog from time to time, you already know one or the other model. Here is an overview of the little helpers already presented:
Have you set up a WLAN-based network at home through which you can use the Internet, address other devices and even supply the printer with jobs? Then you certainly don't need many connections on the MacBook anymore. For the connection of monitors or wired devices such as mouse, keyboard, etc., a simple adapter or a corresponding cable such as the one from Plugable is certainly sufficient. But if you want to connect any peripherals by cable and also use the Internet via Ethernet, a comprehensive dongle such as those from Satechi or Belkin is worthwhile.
I have not yet found the right USB-C hubs that can be used as distributors to redirect from one C port to several of them. There are the dongles described above that come with a couple of USB-C ports in addition to many other things. And then there are hub offers that lead to several USB-A ports. These are certainly the most sought after at the moment because there are not so many type C peripherals available yet. Here is a small selection of such hubs as a bestseller list from Amazon (their advantage: it updates itself whenever you drop by again):
