Charge-Plus LAN HUB

2-Port USB OTG Adapter with Ethernet for USB-C Mobile Devices

$89.99/Web Price

The Charge-Plus LAN HUB provides compatible USB-C mobile devices* with SimulCharge™, Ethernet and two USB-A ports for peripherals. SimulCharge™ ensures the mobile device can simultaneously access the adapter’s wired network connection and any USB peripherals attached to the adapter while it is charging. The portable adapter also features an OTG mode, which allows you to use it without a separate power source.

How the Charge-Plus LAN HUB Ethernet OTG Adapter Works

The Charge-Plus LAN HUB adapter provides compatible USB-C mobile devices* with simultaneous charging and access to data (SimulCharge™). It features wired Ethernet connectivity, two USB-A ports for peripherals and an OTG mode for when it is not plugged in.

The Charge-Plus LAN HUB’s Ethernet port provides a reliable 10/100-capable wired network connection and its USB-A ports allow you to connect up to two peripherals, such as a keyboard and mouse, to give your tablet a more PC-like experience.

OTG Mode for Portability

The small adapter can easily be carried around in your pocket and it features an OTG mode. Like with SimulCharge™, the mobile device remains as USB Host so it can communicate with peripherals. However, unlike SimulCharge™, OTG mode lets the mobile device to power the peripherals from its own battery. This allows you to use the Charge-Plus LAN HUB without an external AC power source.

The adapter comes in a yellow ABS casing that protects the electronics from mild shocks and impacts, allowing it to be used in different implementations. It ships with an 8-inch (20 cm) USB-C to USB-C cable required to connect the adapter to the mobile device. However, you can use a third-party cable up to 3 ft (1 m) in length.

The USB-C power port is rated for the standard 5 volts at 2 amps. It is recommended to use the charging cable that came with the mobile device**.

*The Charge-Plus LAN HUB is not compatible with all USB-C mobile devices. Please see the list of tested devices.
