If you own pretty much any modern ultrabook besides a Microsoft Surface, then you likely have at least one USB-C port on your laptop. If you own a new Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro, then you are all in on the USB-C dongle life, whether you like it or not. As for me, I’m not too far off with my new Lenovo Yoga 720, as it has 2 USB-Cs and 1 USB 3.0 port.
The good thing about USB-C is that it can be or do almost anything. As such, there is no shortage of dongles and adapters, from single purpose, to full-blown swiss army knife. The CASA Hub PDC601 trend toward the latter, offering up 3 USB 3.1 ports, a microSD slot, an SD slot, and a USB-C charging pass-through. The only thing you may need besides this adapter is a video output adapter. Not bad. It’s also one of the smaller USB-C adapters you will find with this many ports.
Our Deals site is offering the CASA Hub PDC601 for $49.
