Today we’re unveiling 4 new flat-cable USB-C adapters, designed for flexibility and durability. With 4 different models spanning our most frequently requested connector types (HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, and Ethernet), we have the right adapter for your USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 system. Each model features a flat printed circuit cable that adapts to the bends and twists of daily use. With extreme flexibility, the cable on each adapter is sturdy and less likely to break than traditional round cables. The lightweight, compact, and durable design makes these adapters a great fit for any desk or space, no matter how small, to keep you connected when it matters the most.

Whether you want to add a reliable Gigabit Ethernet connection or connect to another screen with a compatible Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C desktop or laptop, we’ve got the right adapter for the job. With drivers already built-in to all modern operating systems, these adapters provide a true plug-and-play experience that is perfect for systems with IT policies that prevent external driver installations. These new flat cable USB-C adapters provide high performance at a modest price to help you enhance your workspace with ease, and without clutter.

Please note the USB-C video adapters require your host system to support “DisplayPort over USB-C Alternate Mode” (“Alt Mode”), which provides a direct pipeline to your system’s graphics processor, for uncompromising performance without the need for additional drivers. All Thunderbolt 3 hosts support Alt Mode, as do many popular USB-C devices without Thunderbolt such as the Surface Book 3 and Surface Go, Dell XPS, HP Spectre, and even Samsung USB-C phones like the Galaxy S10 series.
