HooToo USB 3.1 Type-C Hub With HDMI Out, Card Reader and USB Power Delivery For Charging!

Friday, May 06, 2016

If you own the new 12 inch MacBook, Chromebook Pixel, Nexus 6P or any other device with a Type-C connection, you may want to add the HooToo USB 3.1 Type-C Hub to your gadget collection!
The HooToo USB C Hub (model HT-UC001) is essentially a USB-C to USB-A adapter that allows you to charge devices, output video and use SD cards (supports up to 2 Terabyte SD/SDHC/SDXC cards) and Type-A USB devices all through a Type-C plug.
You get three Type-A USB ports, an SD card reader slot, 4K HDMI port and DC IN, all in one compact, lightweight and portable Mac-style design adapter.

Through the DC IN you can charge your Type-C devices; while the HDMI output allows to broadcast onto a second screen monitor and stream at 3840x 2160 (4K) at 30Hz or 1920x1080 (1080p) at 60Hz. You can use both monitors independently of each other, just like you would with a dual screen set up.
One of the 3.0 USB ports has quick charge capability; while the DC IN port serves also as a USB C plug to connect your USB Type-C devices. The SD card reader has transfer speeds of up to 5 Gigabits per second.

The Verdict
The Hootoo HT-UC001 USB-C hub has a Mac-style anodized finish, a HooToo front logo that lights up and a durable cable (the Type-C plug cable is around 5 inches long and 110mm thick). The HooToo Type C hub works with the Razer Blade Stealth, comes with quick charge capability and through the HDMI port you can directly stream 4K UHD or Full HD (1080p) video to a second HDTV monitor.

The Type-C plug cable is reinforced with TPE coating and made of allow, preventing electromagnetic interference (EMI) with wireless devices. The HooToo USB 3.1 Type-C hub will also work on a Windows computer with a USB Type-C connection. All in all, this HooToo USB C hub is a great alternative to Apple's USB-C AV adapter!
