What is a USB-C Hub ?

A USB hub is a device that expands a single Universal Serial Bus (USB) port into several so that there are more ports available to connect devices to a host system, similar to a power strip.

What Is the Difference Between Powered & Non-Powered USB Hubs?

USB hubs increase the number of USB devices that can connect to a computer without having to add additional hardware. Additionally, USB hubs can be useful with devices like laptops that can't physically add more USB ports. The difference between powered and non-powered USB hubs is that the former draws its power from an electrical outlet while the latter draws its power from the computer connection.

What are the functions of USB hub ?

1. Expand the number of USB ports: USB hubs allow you to connect multiple USB devices to your computer or other host devices at the same time by providing multiple additional USB ports. This way, you can connect more USB devices such as keyboards, mice, printers, cameras, external storage devices, and more.

2. Data transmission and charging: USB hub supports high-speed data transmission function, which can transfer files, audio, video and other data. In addition, some USB hubs also have charging functions, which can provide power to mobile devices such as mobile phones, tablets, etc.

3. Flexibility and convenience: Using a USB hub makes it easier to manage and organize device connections. You can bring multiple devices together through a single hub, reducing cluttered cables and jacks, and making device connections cleaner and easier.

It is important to note that the performance of USB hubs may vary by brand, model, and specification. When selecting and using a USB hub, it is recommended to pay attention to its compatibility, transmission speed, power output, and personal needs and device requirements.
