  • Overview

    The USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter lets you connect your USB-C– or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C)–enabled Mac to an HDMI display, while also connecting a standard USB device and a USB-C charging cable.

    This adapter allows you to mirror your Mac display to your HDMI-enabled TV or display in up to 1080p at 60Hz or UHD (3840x2160) at 30Hz. It also outputs video content like films 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 an HDMI 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 Digital AV Multiport Adapter is not compatible with the G-Tech G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Apple part number HF4F2VC/A).

      bulky and expensive

This slightly defeats the wonder of having such a slim package as the wonderful MacBook. Hopefully they will get around to doing a USB 3 stick to USB C sometime soon... meanwhile us early adopters feel foolish

      Does not recognise USB3 drive

      I bought this alongside my MacBook so that I could backup my Mac. I now discover that this adapter is not compatible with USB 3.0 drives.

      DO NOT BUY this

      I'm using this to connect a monitor, power and a Mac USB keyboard to my MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016). The adapter worked for almost a day, but then the I'm using this to connect a monitor, power and a Mac USB keyboard to my MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016). The adapter worked for almost a day, but then the keyboard stopped responding. Checking the adapter I found it was so hot I could not hold it. I unplugged it and found that the ports on the back are smelling of burnt plastic. Clearly there is something fishy with this product - judging from all the other negative reviews too. A very bad situation. This is the only way I can connect a monitor to my MacBook - it's the only port. If Apple cannot provide me with a working adapter then my MacBook becomes severely limited!

      Works for while...

      I have now bought a total of six of these things, one each with each new Macbook or MacBook Pro I've been buying for staff. The results have been consistent. Th I have now bought a total of six of these things, one each with each new Macbook or MacBook Pro I've been buying for staff. The results have been consistent. They work (usually for a few weeks) and then they stop working - and it's almost always the USB-C connector to the external screen that stops working. Oddly, it only stops working for that purpose- it's still works for power. I've also regularly taken the adaptor back to my local Apple store - where they replace them without fuss - only for the same thing to happen with the new ones. It's very frustrating as these adaptors are essential with the MacBook - which only has the one port.

      Very strange product

However, it works the other way around - the power supply will feed through to my MacBook Pro. So this USB-C port is one-way only, not two-way. Very strange concept and not explained anywhere.

      Poor durability!

Within one year, the white rubber around the wire turned brown due to excessive heat generated by the wire. Shortly after, the wire split open. Just after using the adapter for 1 year, the USB port stopped working for my iPhone. For the cost of this adapter, it is poorly built. However, in typical mac fashion, you have to buy this adapter to be able to use a USB device or sync your iPhone while connecting your mac to a power source as it is the ONLY one on the market. I am very disappointed.
