    Not supported

    The Native Union charges my wife’s Samsung products and powers my lamps but when I plug it to my iPad it says “not supported”. How does that help?

    Be aware of what you are buying

    "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"

    Not sure why anyone would buy a "charger" that doesn't charge when you are using your laptop.

    enough said.

    Looks nice but doesn't charge

    This charging blocks looks great and seems like it would allow you to travel with fewer cables and charging blocks but you would be wrong. I bought this as a home/travel charger for my MacBook and you can't imagine my disappointment when I plugged in my MacBook and clicked on the battery icon to see "Battery is not charging Power source: Power Adaptor". It looks good but doesn't put out enough power to charge a MacBook while in use, very disappointed and a waste of money.

    Lovely device: But It's Neither a Hub nor a Bridge

    If you are looking for a device to supply power to your devices, look no further. HOWEVER, If you are looking for an actual hub or a bridge--as in the name of the product-- you will not find it here. Bridges and hubs pass data from port to port. For Native Union, the term "bridge' means "Bridging power" according to their chat representative Ritchie. So, depending on what you expect from the firm's marketing, you will either receive a delightful product of exceptional build quality or a deceptive product that in no way lives up its title and wastes your time. I have rated it one star since I am clearly in the latter camp.

    Carry fewer power adapters

    I originally bought this to travel with but have decided to keep it at home because it looks so nice (love the braided cord with the 90 degree connection to the wall). 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.

    Convenient for home and travel

    I have a MacBook Pro, MacBook, Apple Watch, and iPhone 8. I travel with the MacBook, watch, and iPhone. With just this Charger and correct cables I am able to eliminate all of the unique charging bricks for each device. I am planning to buy another just for home use to help clean up power cables and wire clutter.
