Gadgets: EZQuest USB-C Gen 2 Hub Adapter a great charging hub for Mac users – msnNOW
Adding a few more USB-C ports to a Mac system can be magical to users of multiple accessories, and incredible when it is as easy as plugging in the new EZQuest USB-C Gen 2 Hub Adapter.
Instantly plugging in the 9-inch black nylon braided USB-C cable to one of the computer’s USB-C ports adds adds seven ports ready for action; three USB-C 10GB ports, one USB-C Power Delivery version 3.0 port, and three USB 3.0 5GB ports.
The power delivery power port supplies pass-thru charging 100 watts and 5Gbs data transfer. EZQuest notes that when using the PD port, “To support full-speed charging for iPad Pro or other mobile devices, please make sure your power adapter is at least 15V (45W). Power adapter less than 45W will not supply enough power to provide pass-through charging.”
The three USB-C 10GB ports, which to me is what makes this hub great by expanding the amount of USB-C ports, are perfect for plugging in accessories including hard drives, memory card readers, flash drives, cameras and cellphone charging cables. According to the specs, the USB-C Ports are not for video but are Thunderbolt 3/4 Compatible.
And the three USB 3.0 5GB ports are the standard-shaped USB inputs we have been using for years and can be used with all the same accessories as the USB-C ports, but with slower speeds.
For a few days of work, the EZQuest USB-C Gen 2 Hub Adapter added the ports I needed and worked perfectly. Even with the hub filled, which isn’t a typical workflow for me, each plugged-in device was powered and did its job.
The travel-friendly EZQuest USB-C Gen 2 Hub Adapter (8.7-by-1.5-by-0.5 inches) is listed as compatible with all Apple products built with USB-C and any other computers with USB-C ports.
The new Blue BYRD 2nd generation Bluetooth headphones have all the features needed, along with my favorite neckband design, for wearing in comfort and earbuds designed to not protrude from the ear.
The low-profile design makes them an excellent choice for listening while lying down and on your side. The earbuds wear comfortably for hours at a time, making them an ideal choice for work or play.
With the silicone neckband, the earbuds can be put on or off without having to worry about storing them. Instead, they hang around your neck for the next time needed.
The headset is controlled with a universal three-button remote on the cord, connecting the earbuds to the neckband. The controls include accepting or rejecting hands-free calls, music selections and volume. Charging is done with the included USB-C cable, which produces up to 14 hours of use from a single charge in 1 hour and 40 minutes. A quick charge of 10 minutes provides two hours of playtime.
