    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 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 a VGA cable (sold separately).

      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!

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!

      Multiport Adapter - works fine with new MacbookPro

      I bought the USB-C VGA multiport adapter with my new MacBookPro (with function keys and only two USB C ports). Set up the MacBook Pro in the Covent Garden Appl I bought the USB-C VGA multiport adapter with my new MacBookPro (with function keys and only two USB C ports). Set up the MacBook Pro in the Covent Garden Apple Store (helpful, intelligent staff) and used it to run a Powerpoint presentation (with VGA cable to external monitor) in Dubai the next day. Everything worked FINE. I have now run courses in six different locations, with different screens and VGA adaptors in each place, and had only one problem: at the third venue I closed the lid of my Macbook before going to lunch. On return I lifted the lid of the MacBook, screen came to life immediately ... but had intermittent flashing black windows opening and closing. Minor panic ... but after disconnecting the multiport adapter and reconnecting, everything worked fine. Also, having read negative comments about having to have an external adapter in the first place, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy was to tuck the adapter (with VGA, USB and Power cables connected) around the back of my MacBook so that they didn't get in the way at the side.
