Havit HV-TPC68 USB C Hub Review

USB Type-C is something we are seeing a lot more, not just on motherboards, but on laptops as well. The Type-C connection not only is smaller, but is also the same connection use for Thunderbolt 3. With many new laptops opting for USB Type-C and having Thunderbolt 3 there is a lot of bandwidth there that really is not used, especially when it comes to Ultrabooks. The common thing now with Ultrabooks is to have two Type-C ports and possibly one other normal Type-A port. That is really limiting if you want to connect more than one device. Also one thing that seems to be missing from most new Ultrabooks is a card reader. So that is where the new USB Type-C hubs come in and today we are checking out the Havit HV-TCP68, which gives you three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a card reader, HDMI, and a Type-C port which can be used for charging. Let's see if it is the perfect accessory for your Ultrabook.

That leads to me running around the house looking for them before I have to leave. I'm sure many of you have experienced this and know how frustrating it can be. Well that is where Tile comes in. Tile is a small little device that you can attach to your keys, put in your wallet, in a laptop bag etc and allows you to easily find that item by ringing it with your smartphone. Conversely if you've lost your smartphone you can press the button on Tile to ring your phone. The app also will show you the last known location of your tile on a map, which can be very helpful.
