A USB-C Hub that offers 4K video resolution and travels well with MacBooks.

I constantly see advertisements for multiport adapters. I always thought a multiport adapter was unnecessary and would be a waste of money. I never thought that I needed one until I wanted to try out a projector. It was at that moment I realized that my MacBook Pro only had two USB-C ports and I needed an HDMI connection to make it work. Fortunately, a 6-in-1 USB-C Hub multiport adapter by Lemorele saved the day.

Specs & Details

Before I share my experience, I want to outline the specs provided by the product designer — Lemorele.

The Lemorele 6-in-1 USB-C hub is referred to as both a ‘hub’ and a ‘docking station.’ It is equipped with one (1) 4K@60 Hz HDMI port, two (2) USB-A 3.0 ports (for data), one (1) Gigabit Ethernet port, one (1) USB-C 100W power delivery port, and one (1) USB-C 3.0 data port. The hub connects to tablets or computers with a single, built-in USB-C cable.

The hub is designed to have plug-n-play functionality and doesn’t require any software to operate it. The USB-C hub supports video resolutions up to 4K@60 Hz, but it is backward compatible and also supports 4K@30Hz, 2K@60Hz, and 1080p@60Hz. The 4K resolution is only attainable for laptops with an activated DisplayPort 1.4 and 8K. If an attached computer doesn’t have that, the highest resolution the video can reach will be 4K@30Hz. The HDMI cable that is used should be HDMI 2.0 or higher.

The following devices support 4K @ 60Hz when connected to the hub.

  • MacBook Pro 2018 15" /2019 16"
  • MacBook Pro 2020 13" with M1 chipset
  • MacBook Air 2020 13-inch M1 Chipset
  • MacBook Air 2020 13"
  • MacBook Pro 2021 14" /16" with M1 Chipset
  • iMAC
  • iPad Pro 2020 11" /12.9" /2021 12.9"

Even though there are multiple USB/USB-C ports available for data transfer, the user is instructed to only connect one hard drive at a time. Some of the details also state that some 2.4 GHz wireless devices such as keyboards and mouse, may not be supported by the hub or may not work in close proximity to the hub or other USB 3.0 devices.
