      Carry fewer power adapters

Everything about the product screams quality, from the materials to the packaging. I'm using it with various iOS devices and a 15" MacBook Pro. I plug the MacBook Pro power adapter into one of the side outlets and charge my iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch via the USB connections. The charger does not produce enough power to charge the battery of the MacBook Pro via the USB-C connector but even with the original MacBook Pro power adapter plugged into the side it is much cleaner than the power strip I was using with all the individual power adapters coming out of it.

      Not a bridge, not a hub, not a real MBP charger

      This only acts as a trickle charger for MacBooks.

The physical Apple stores sell this as an alternative to the standard wall charger, however it is ONLY effective as a trickle charger... WHEN THE MacBook is not in use. You cannot run & charge your MacBook with this device. 1 star because as many others have pointed out: it is not a hub. It is not a bridge. It is also not a real charger. Per their website, but not on the physical packaging: "It does have a MACBOOK CHARGING LIMITATION: USB-C Port will NOT re-charge a Macbook or Macbook Pro when the device is in use. Will allow slow charging of a Macbook or Macbook Pro while asleep and will reduce battery drain while in use." - Native Union

      Buyer Beware! The USB-C feature does not work!

      This will not charge your MacBook Pro with touch bar with the USB-C cord. I had purchased one and plugged it into my MacBook Pro with touch bar using my USB-C This will not charge your MacBook Pro with touch bar with the USB-C cord. I had purchased one and plugged it into my MacBook Pro with touch bar using my USB-C cord. It continually charged and then would drop the charge. So my MacBook basically chimed that it was charging then chimed that it was disconnected from its power source over and over. To better explain, it chimed on then chimed off, chimed on then chimed off, etc. I thought I had a faulty charger, and called Apple Customer Care, and they replaced it free of charge, but the replacement Native Hub does the same thing. I use it for the 2 extra outlet plugs and the USB-A ports, and so far those work fine. I did read on the reviews that the USB-C charging port will charge the MacBook while the MacBook is off or in sleep mode. However, I did try to charge my MacBook when I was not using it and had the laptop closed - it still did not work. I am disappointed. This is a very attractive charging station for multiple devices. Sadly, the USB-C port is no good. This is frustrating since it is the main reason I purchased this item.
