    Ended up buying an Apple USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter since it was getting frustrating disconnecting cables from the Casa Hub when I go to a meeting (plus I need to bring my own HDMI cable as most laptops at work use VGA).

    I've now semi-permanently mounted the Casa Hub to my laptop stand, connected to a LAN cable, HDMI monitor, USB-C charger, and USB 2.0 hub which is connected to an Apple wired keyboard and USB DAC amp. All those accessories connected to my mac via a tiny USB-C port. No issues whatsoever. No issues as well with the Apple adapter.

    Ordered these from AliExpress (also available from Amazon---I checked). Brand is QacQoc. Picked this brand as the other ones are not aluminium. Didn't want everything in one hub so I ordered two... 7 port hub and a separate hub for ethernet and 3 USB 3.0 ports

    I live in New Zealand and it got delivered through a local courier so I am happy with the local fulfilment---was expecting delivery from the US!

    Does the cable-less USB C dongles like this HyperDrive also affect 2.4Ghz Wifi connection for the latest Macbook Pro?

    I use the Asus Universal dock as my fixed hub on my desk. This works as my power source (it comes with a power brick), secondary display, wired LAN, and USB hub (for printers, external drives, etc...). Very convenient since I just plug in one cable and I'm all set - no need to bring out my MBP's power adapter.

    But I have the Hyperdrive on my laptop bag all the time as my portable, on-the-go hub.

    I just found out that my Anker USB 3.0 Type-C hub is somehow interfering with my AW unlocking my MBP. :rolleyes:

    I don't believe it's available locally. I had a friend buy it from Australia.

    This is a long overdue review. It's working fine except when I plug in my MBP charger on the USB-C HUB and had it unplug after charging my mac, the devices that are plugged in the hub such as my Logitech mouse. So I have to replug it and then it's working fine again, kinda annoying

    Speaking of hyperdrive, does anyone sell the iPad Pro one locally?

    Need it for music production Sana.

    Thank you!
