Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: AUKEY USB Full Size To USB-C Adapter Review

By Tim

This video was originally intended to showcase this adapter helping me to fix my Win 10 issues on my HiBook tablet, but turned into a video review of the product.

There isn’t a thing wrong with this handy little adapter, it simply turns out that it was not the cure for my issues. At only $4.99 for the adapter and free shipping it was well worth the cost and will get used a bit in the future.

Suffice to say I found out some things I simply did not know, about the Chuwi HiBook.

So let us get right to the video so you can hear all the dirty details and watch my mini-review of this mini-product!

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: USB C is Great Until You Need to Use a Full Size USB Device!

By Tim

As stated in the title I was in need of being able to connect 2 devices using full size USB connectors to my HiBook this week. As luck would have it I have somehow lost my USB to USB-C adapter!

USB-C might be the wave of the future, but it is damned useless if you have older keyboards, flash drives and dongles and if you are like me I am sure you didn’t run right out and switch everything to a USB-C device/cable/flash drive.

So I will let the video explain all the details and as usual, make sure to check out our channel, leave feedback in the comments section and also to like our videos and subscribe!

Below is the video as promised….

While You Are Buying All Those Great Tablets and Smartphones for Xmas Don’t Forget the Small Stuff!

accessories-1This is the Holiday Season and you are probably looking at all sorts of nifty tablets and smartphones and other devices which will invariably require some accessories.

Do yourself a favor and get those accessories right from the start. You will need a few items for certain among them a multi-device charger and probably an adapter or two such as a  USB-C to standard USB adapter, perhaps a longer USB cable or USB to USB to USB-C cable. Below are a few handy items I found on Gearbest today.

orico-4portFirst on the list is an Orico 4 port USB charger with 2 x 2.4a ports and 2 x 1a ports. It has automatic shutoff and is reasonably priced at $12.52.

 

 

orico-2-4portAnother option is this Orico 4 port USB charger with a bit less power than the one mentioned above but an equally great price of only $10.82.

 

 

usb-c-to-usb-otgIf your device has a USB C type port you may want to grab one of these handy OTG adapters that allow charging and data transfer. You can also plug in your wireless mouse dongle or connect a USB keyboard, etc. You can get one for about $1.54.

2m-usbc-usb-cableDon’t forget that most devices you get nowadays come with very short cables for charging. So get yourself a 2 M (6ft) cable like one of these for around $2.02.

There may be other adapters and cables you might need and you can find them all, with free shipping at Gearbest.com.
