  • Overview

    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter lets you connect your USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) enabled Mac 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 Mac 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 a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port on your Mac 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 Mac.

    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).

      Various problems but no alternatives

For some currently unknown reason, the video on an external monitor glitches periodically to a low resolution and the only way to reset it is to change the resolution to some other value and then back to best for monitor setting. I have found it best to not use this adapter with external USB drives of any kind. Sometimes the drive decides to unmount in the middle of a read or write operation--Not good for data integrity or drive performance. The biggest negative is that there are no documented alternatives that do not have similar poor reviews. I guess this line of netbooks, oh, sorry, premium Apple notebooks with USB-C really isn't meant to be used with any external peripherals ... other than a charger and a set of ... headphones ...

      Useless since last update

      Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware update -- unless you're ready to reboot at least once a day: it sure works, for a few hours, and then the LED of your drive lights up, you hear the drive spin (if that kind of drive) but it no longer mounts, until you reboot. C'mon, what is this? Not even worth a single star...

      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!

      Broke Within a Month

      I thought that by buying this adapter from Apple instead of a cheap knockoff, I was investing in a high-quality product. Less than a month later, every time I u I thought that by buying this adapter from Apple instead of a cheap knockoff, I was investing in a high-quality product. Less than a month later, every time I use it to plug in a VGA cable, my MacBook Pro shuts off and keeps shutting off and restarting until I unplug the adapter. It's truly unbelievable that Apple charges so much for such a shoddy product.

      Rarely works with my Macbook 12

      This is the first review I've written here. The reason that prompted me to get my lazy bum to write one is coz of how disappointed I am with this USB-C VGA Dong This is the first review I've written here. The reason that prompted me to get my lazy bum to write one is coz of how disappointed I am with this USB-C VGA Dongle. Actually, I accidentally stumbled onto the review section looking for help to make my VGA dongle work! Coz I'm lucky if it works half the times I've needed it. I make a lot of presentations and bought a Macbook 12 coz it's easy to carry around. If the office that I'm presenting at has an HDMI projector or flat screen TV, yehey I'm safe coz I have a third party HDMI USB-C dongle. I'm soooooo screwed if it's an old school projector using VGA. So for these big meetings I now carry around in addition to my laptop, a pouch of dongles and a projector!!! Sigh

      Much Better Than the After Market Knock Off!

      I was taken about by the price, but still I bought one. I needed a second one for work - didn't want to carry the adapter back and forth - for sure I'd forget I was taken about by the price, but still I bought one. I needed a second one for work - didn't want to carry the adapter back and forth - for sure I'd forget at home or at work. So I bought a "look a like" off Amazon. The knock-off has lasted about 4 months and interestingly, the VGA portion is performing much like many of the reviewers are complaining about the Apple adapter. Strange because I have had the Apple adapter for both a later 2015 12 inch Retinal display and now a 2017 MacBook Pro laptop and it has been great. I use the adapter for both a monitor and to drive a projection device (both are VGA) and I charge my computer and listen to music through the USB port with a Logitech speaker. I do think that you need to make sure your VGA connection is tight. It's annoying to tighten the screws, but when one of those failed, that is when my knock-off monitor connection also failed. Just a thought...
