Aukey USB C to USB 3.0 Adapter 2


The Aukey USB C to USB 3.0 adapter is a fantastic addition to anyone’s collection. This product is especially relevant if you have seen Apple’s new Macbook Pro! (We love this although the slight lack of any USB 3.0 A ports makes it useless for charging my new Apple iPhone 7. Needless to say it is a problem that needs to be addressed, apple’s alternative costs around £20 for a cable to do this. Aukey’s cable is £15.99 in comparison and has far more features and ports for a much cheaper price.

Aukey approached me with this fantastic cable, it does the same job as Apple’s for much cheaper and with added extras as it includes 3 ports rather than just the one! It also includes an Ethernet port on the end. Fantastic!

The features of the adapter include:

  • 3 x USB A 3.0 Ports
  • 1 x USB C Port
  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 Port

After using this device I was able to achieve USB 3.0 write and read speeds, which is what you would expect from any other product but I have had devices unable to achieve these speeds in the past. The Aukey adapter was capable and managed to impress me. I was also greatly impressed by the sturdiness of the device itself. It has a fantastic build quality.

In conclusion I have no doubt that this will be a fantastic cable for any Apple fan who purchases the new Macbook Pro with USB C support. If you happen to have a motherboard or new laptop that supports the USB C platform this is a fantastic alternative to some other hubs and is highly portable, small and of a fantastically high quality. I am more than impressed with this product and the fact it includes an ethernet port to help you achieve those Gbit speeds instead of using WiFi. I would only wish that the USB C cable may have been a bit longer. This would let you move the adapter further away on a flat surface. Besides this minor inconvenience the cable is still fantastic.

    Hi Andrea!

    I had not tried to fill the connector itself but I was intrigued by your question. As below, you can see I plugged in 3 devices; an external HDD, iPhone and USB Stick! I had no issues accessing all 3 devices but it does depend on what you are plugging in, like you say. Maybe you could elaborate on what types of things you are plugging in and I’ll see if I can try similar?

    Many thanks,

    Can you use all three ports at once? I have tried other adapters but because they are not powered I can only plug in one device at a time which defeats the purpose. Thanks.
