Data Hub with Charging Capabilities

I have an HP Elite X2 Tablet PC and needed a way to add additional ports without removing the ability to charge my device at the same time. So I tried the The Anker 4-Port Portable Data Hub was the solution I needed for my HP Elite X2 Tablet PC.

My PC is charged with a USB-C and only has a single USB 3.0 Port. Because of this, doing anything more than charging and using a wireless mouse at the same time was not ideal. Connecting to an external display was a challenge, because it was only as good as the battery life. Enter this Anker Data Hub.

With this device, I can now charge my PC while connecting to an external display such as a TV or monitor while charging. It also provides additional USB 3.0 ports, which now allows me to use my wireless mouse and access an external hard drive and still have an additional port to charge my phone.

The performance of the hub was flawless. There was no issue with data transmission speeds or display resolution. In all, this is the device that adds immense value to my PC.

The packaging, as always with Anker, was high quality and gave the hub an extra premium feel.

The product description says it does not support the HP Spectre x2, but work flawlessly on my Elite x2.

I would fully recommend this product to anyone who as a USB-C powered device who is looking for a solid display/port addition option.
