    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter lets you connect your MacBook with USB-C port or MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports to a VGA display, while also connecting a standard USB device and a USB-C charging cable.

    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter allows you to mirror your MacBook or MacBook Pro display to your VGA-enabled TV or display in up to 1080p HD. It also outputs video content like movies and captured video. Simply connect the adapter to the USB-C port on your MacBook or any Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port on your MacBook Pro and then to your TV or projector via a VGA cable (sold separately).

    Use the standard USB port to connect devices such as your flash drive or camera or a USB cable for syncing and charging your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can also connect a charging cable to the USB-C port to charge your MacBook or MacBook Pro.

    Note: The Apple USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter is not compatible with the G-Tech G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Apple part number HF4F2VC/A).

      Poor!

      Bought this genuine product after having tried a cheaper alternative that didn't work well with many monitors; unfortunately this is not much better! I nee Bought this genuine product after having tried a cheaper alternative that didn't work well with many monitors; unfortunately this is not much better! I needed it to perform with a VGA projector this morning to show a PowerPoint presentation to a client and the screen kept going black then coming back on. It's done this before with other devices and when in use the image doesn't always fill the connected screen correctly when using in second monitor, rather than mirrored mode (mirrored is worse as the adaptor often defaults devices to 800x 600! Yes, before someone asks I'm fully up to date with drivers etc. and the same screens and devices all work seamlessly with my old MacBook Air and apple VGA adaptors. Yes I've tried various settings to correct issues without success. This is a major problem as with a new MacBook I've no other way of connecting screens and projectors that don't have a HDMI output. If Apple support read this I'd be happy to hear their views as to why this product appears so flawed, and how I can get these issues addressed given it is soooo expensive!

      USB-C to VGA multiport adaper

      I have a one year old MacBook and recently got an older Dell monitor (E170SB) with a VGA cable that I wanted to connect. After a lot of snooping on the net, I I have a one year old MacBook and recently got an older Dell monitor (E170SB) with a VGA cable that I wanted to connect. After a lot of snooping on the net, I settled on this Mac Multiport (despite the somewhat hight price, $49). Glad I did. It works fine. The monitor has no problems (note you can set Displays in System Preferences to optimize for it), charging is as usual, and I noticed no difference in connecting to and using two different (older) USB drives. Only problem so far was that one USB thumb drive was too wide to be connected at the same time as the VGA connector. So I'm bewildered by all the negative reports. Not my experience at all. Maybe I should mention that as soon as I plugged the Multiport in, I was prompted to upgrade some software (even before I connected anything to it but the Macbook, IIRC).

      Multiport Adapter - works fine with new MacbookPro

      I bought the USB-C VGA multiport adapter with my new MacBookPro (with function keys and only two USB C ports). Set up the MacBook Pro in the Covent Garden Appl I bought the USB-C VGA multiport adapter with my new MacBookPro (with function keys and only two USB C ports). Set up the MacBook Pro in the Covent Garden Apple Store (helpful, intelligent staff) and used it to run a Powerpoint presentation (with VGA cable to external monitor) in Dubai the next day. Everything worked FINE. I have now run courses in six different locations, with different screens and VGA adaptors in each place, and had only one problem: at the third venue I closed the lid of my Macbook before going to lunch. On return I lifted the lid of the MacBook, screen came to life immediately ... but had intermittent flashing black windows opening and closing. Minor panic ... but after disconnecting the multiport adapter and reconnecting, everything worked fine. Also, having read negative comments about having to have an external adapter in the first place, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy was to tuck the adapter (with VGA, USB and Power cables connected) around the back of my MacBook so that they didn't get in the way at the side.

      Didn't last very long

      I'm a teacher and use this adapter in my classroom every day to connect to printer/power/projector. Yesterday, the VGA port stopped working for no apparent reas I'm a teacher and use this adapter in my classroom every day to connect to printer/power/projector. Yesterday, the VGA port stopped working for no apparent reason. It hasn't been damaged in any way. It never even leaves my desk. The power port and USB still work. But for this price, it should be good enough quality to last more than a year or two. I've also had a charger just stop working within that time period, and the keyboard on my MacBook is constantly giving me problems. In all the years I've used Apple products, this is the first product I've hated. There's very little about the new MacBook and accessories that I could recommend.

      I bought this for a MacBook 12inch .. worked fairly ok. Switched it over to a MacBook pro 15inch - nothing but issues. Resets constantly on all ports - whereas I bought this for a MacBook 12inch .. worked fairly ok. Switched it over to a MacBook pro 15inch - nothing but issues.
