When I replaced my 9 year old Mac Book Pro to the new Mac Book Air M1 and I was told that I need a USB-C hub so I can connect my WD- external hard drive to the Mac Book . A lot of my friends recommended that I either get a Ugreen or an Anker.
I choose to go with Anker because they have a local distributor here in the Philippines. Anker has a lot of different USC-C hubs available so you can choose the best one for you. I got mine at Lazada during the 6.6. sale.

What I like about the Anker 5-in-1 USB Port:
- Quick transfer speed with the 3 USB ports
- Minimal heating
- Braided nylon cable that is bendable
- Instant connection to the internet
- Comes with a travel pouch
- 18 months warranty
- You can use it to charge your laptop
What needs to improve:
- I would have wanted a longer cable, I use my Mac Book with a tilt and the Anker USB-C is just floating when I use it.
- You can’t use it in all USB-C gadgets
I think I made the right choice when I bought my Anker, I have been using it for more than a month and so far so good.
What do think of the Anker 5-in-1 Ultra Slim USB-C Hub? Let me know at the comment section.
Until next time,
