Potential display setup using the USBC-MD103

As more of us are working remotely on laptops or have undertaken a hybrid home-and-office schedule, many of us are disconnecting and reconnecting to the devices and workspaces we use on a daily basis. And as our laptops have become thinner and lighter, they often have fewer available ports to connect their devices. In fact, many new laptops like Apple MacBooks and the Dell XPS series include only USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports, without the dedicated video and “standard” USB ports that used to be included. While USB-C is incredibly versatile, when it’s the only type of connector on your new laptop it can be difficult to easily connect peripherals that used to have dedicated ports, like HDMI monitors and USB 3.0 (“USB-A”) devices.

We’ve set out to solve these problems with the Plugable USB-C Multiport Adapter, the USBC-MD103 (an updated version of our popular USBC-MD101), which lets you connect an HDMI monitor, USB device, and your USB-C Power Delivery (“PD”) charger to a single USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port on your laptop. This type of 3-in-1 multiport adapter has become an essential way to simply and affordably get your ports back and increase your ability to multitask.

The Plugable USB-C Multiport Adapter is a cost-effective, all-in-one solution that provides an HDMI port with support for monitors up to 4K 30Hz resolution, a USB 3.0 port that supports up to 5Gbps transfer rate, and up to 60W of pass-through charging from your USB-C power supply.

While offering similar baseline functionality as the USBC-MD101, the USBC-MD103 introduces updated internal chipsets supporting cutting edge features from the USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 specification like “Fast Role Swap” (to minimize disruption plugging or unplugging your pass-through charger), while also enhancing compatibility with a broader range of laptops with Thunderbolt 3 ports or USB-C Alternate Mode (“Alt Mode”) and USB-C PD ports. And better still, we’re able to bring you this updated technology at an even lower price.

The Plugable USBC-MD103 is available now on Amazon, Walmart, ebay, and other electronics distributors. As a special thank you to our blog subscribers we’re offering a limited time $5 coupon for customers on Amazon.com; simply clip the coupon prior to purchase to receive that 25% discount.
