The MacBook Pro Dongle Solution – My Solution using some new Choetech Adapters


My other post today, I detailed all my Apple lightning adapters ,as shown in the above photo, that I used for my iPhone and iPad. I did not want to go down this route with my new MacBook Pro. So I had a quick look online to see what options were available,


One of my favourite brands is Choetech. They now have a twin pack USB C to USB 3.0 adapters that are compatible with MacBook 12″, ChromeBook Pixel, Nexus 6P and other USB-C devices. As these are also USB 3.0, they supports faster transmission speed up to 5 Gbps. They are also backward compatible with USB2.0 and 1.1 which means all my existing USB devices will connect to these at no extra cost to myself. They also include the built-in 56k ohm resistor follow Type C standard specification. OTG, hot plug and play design is supported with no external driver needed and without software installation. These are very lightweight and designed and constructed with premium grade metal. And a fraction of the price of the Apple own branded adapter.

Another option from Choetech is gorgeous USB C to USB 3.0 cables. Look at the quality in the photo above. The cable is a braided cord, resistant to kinking, bending, and environmental damage. It also features fast sync USB 3 speeds up to 5 Gbps with compatible USB 3.0 device. It is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1.

But for me the adapters are just what I needed. Small and perfect and a fraction of what Apple charge for their adapter. This adapter will allow me to charge and sync my iPhone 7 Plus and connect all my “legacy” USB 2 devices.
