Can I connect other USBC devices to the port or is this only to pass power?

After plugging this into my Mac - there is an available USBC and USBA connection on the adaptor. I know I can connect other peripherals to the USBA connector. Can I also connect other peripherals to the other USBC input?

    No.

    As far as my experience has gone this only passes power. If you plug in other items you are likely to burn them out (has happened to me)

  • You can use a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 hub with USB-PD connected to this port. I have a Thunderbolt dock wired into this, which passes through power but also provides video and other connectivity. I could just use the Thunderbolt doc, but this setup allows me to use the Digital AV Multiport Adapter with the iPad Pro as well, which doesn't support Thunderbolt, only USB-C.
