Nonda USB-C to USB 3.0 Mini Adapter

The Good

Quickly turns a USB-C port into a regular USB 3.0 port. It's only 10 bucks.

The Bad

Nothing. Like I said, it's only $10.

The Bottom Line

The Nonda USB-C to USB 3.0 Mini Adapter is the cheapest way to connect your iPhone or iPad to your new MacBook and is totally worth its $10 price.

And it works amazingly well, supporting virtually every USB device I threw at it, including an SD card reader, a few portable drives, many thumbdrives, one printer, an iPhone 6S and an iPad Air.

These USB-C adapters make your MacBook Pro better

In fact, at just $10, this Nonda adapter is the cheapest way to connect your iPhone or iPad to your new MacBook Pro or 12-inch MacBook. Otherwise, you'll need to spend $25 for a USB-C-to-Lightning cable.
