The Multiport Hub also features a Gigabit ethernet port. Ideal for when the wireless connection is inconsistent or unstable, you can now connect your laptop to the wired network by plugging in a gigabit ethernet cable.
The USB-C port provides uninterrupted pass-through charging. Some laptops only come with one USB-C port, so once you have added a hub, there is no extra port to plug in power. The USB-C port on the hub allows pass through charging from the power source, allowing the laptop to be charged while using all the other ports on the hub.
