1byone USB 3.1 Type C Multi Adapter REVIEW

written by Shane "Geek" Lundberg July 27, 2016


More and more devices are coming out with the Type C connections. I know from my Nexus 6P to my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S, I have switched out most of the chargers in the house to Type C. There does seem to be consistent issue with devices that are coming out with this kind of charging unit….lack of other inputs or outputs. After some serious research I have come across the 1byone USB Multi Adapter to try to fix this issue….and it has.

The 1byone USB Multi Adapter has about every kind of connection you will need in day-to-day use. I plug one end into my Samsung Tab Pro S and then I have a HDMI, USB 3.1, and a Type C port to charge while using these others. This has really made me be able to use my tablet so much more thanks to being able to use USB 3.1 for memory and other peripherals.


The Multi Adapter is built very sturdy and seems like it will last as long as my tablet (or until there is a new kind of port out there). Cable is thick and sturdy as well. At $29.99 on Amazon I think this is a must own for anyone with a Type C device out there. Macbook , Chromebook Pixel, and Samsung Tab Pro S people this is really pointed at you.

Check out some specs from Amazon:

  • Multifunction – USB 3.1 Type C Male Connector to 4K HDMI Digital AV & USB 3.0 HUB for Data Transfer & USB C Charging Port. Add three ports to your devices. So you don’t need to buy all sorts of adapters when you buy a new MacBook that only has one port.
