CHOETECH Hub-M03 USB C to HDMI Adapter with Charging Port

Thursday, August 23, 2018

Ah, what's not to like about USB-C? USB-C connectors can be plugged-in right the first time and they can also carry HDMI signals when using a device such as the CHOETECH Hub-M03 USB C to HDMI adapter.
The CHOETECH USB C to HDMI adapter lets you connect a USB C smartphone to an external HDMI display without the need of a streaming media adapter like Chromecast or mirroring app like Miracast.
The CHOETECH USB C to HDMI adapter is compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and offers full native HDMI functionality along with USB 3.0 data connectivity and USB C power delivery charging so you can charge a phone while streaming to TV without draining your battery.
The USB C charging port delivers up to 20V/3A which translates to 60W of power and it's a useful feature you don't get with the official Samsung USB-C to HDMI adapter. The CHOETECH USB C to HDMI adapter supports UHD (ultra high definition) resolution so you can stream movies from Netflix in great quality. With that said, the Ultra HD format is not quite 4k as it has a slightly lower resolution of 3840 x 2160.
The CHOETECH USB C to HDMI adapter is bus powered so it is powered via the device (i.e. PC or smartphone) that is connected to. You cannot use TV on-demand apps like Sky app and Virgin TV app but you can use Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer, Chromecast and TV mirroring.
As mentioned earlier, The CHOETECH USB C to HDMI adapter lets you stream both video and audio from a laptop as well as a smartphone to a HDMI TV, HDMI monitor or HDMI projector as long as the phone or laptop support DP Alt mode. USB C Alt Mode is a fairly new technology that came out in 2016 so not all USB C devices support it.
The Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, Huawei P20 pro, Pixel 2 XL, Razer Phone are some examples of DP Alt mode phones which accept HDMI signals via USB-C. The 2017 MacBook Pro, 2016 MacBook Pro, 2015/ 2016 MacBook 12-inch and Chromebook Pixel also support DP Alt Mode.
Alt Mode is actually a pretty neat standard because it allows any device with a USB-C port to output to any HDMI display using no more than a standard HDMI cable without the need of a dongle or adapter to convert the signals.
