MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 9-in-1 USB-C Adapter From Choetech

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 9-in-1 USB-C Adapter that works with Apple's Mac models, including the new M1 Macs.

Design wise, the USB-C Adapter is slim and compact, plugging into a USB-C port on a modern Mac model or an iPad Pro. It's small enough to be tucked in a bag or backpack for easy portability.

Priced at $24, the USB-C Adapter features a 4K HDMI port, three USB-A ports, an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, a 60Hz VGA port, an SD card slot, and a micro SD card slot, adding more utility to Macs and PCs that have a limited number of built-in ports.

There's also a USB-C 100W power delivery port that can be used for charging Apple's Macs, and it will charge even Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro models at full speed. The USB-C port is limited to charging and won't transfer data, which is something to be aware of.

With the USB-A ports, you can connect keyboards, mice, and hard drives, with transfer speeds of up to 5Gb/s supported, while the SD card slots provide access to photos taken with cameras, drones, and other accessories.

HDMI and VGA ports allow for connecting TVs and displays for mirroring or extending your Mac's screen or streaming video to a TV or projector. The HDMI port supports 4K at 30Hz resolution, while the VGA port supports up to 1080p at 60Hz.

According to Choetech, the display is compatible with all of Apple's USB-C MacBook Pro, MacBook, iMac, Mac mini, and MacBook Air models dating back to 2017. It is also compatible with any PC laptop that has USB-C ports, along with some Android smartphones.

We have 15 of the 9-in-1 USB-C Adapters to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.

Why do so many new hubs still include VGA? Genuinely would be curious to know how many people still connect to VGA over any other connection.
I’d find VGA worthless on a stationary dock in my office since I favor HDMI, DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt; however many conference centers (and office buildings I assume) still use VGA heavily. So it can come in handy if you present from your laptop frequently.

This. If you travel and present at many academic or industrial sites, you'd find that most of them have not yet jumped on the HDMI bandwagon.

Still only for USA and Canada residents? Why?
Because the more countries you include the more sets of rules you have to follow, making international giveaways tricky. I follow a U.K. based publication and all their giveaways are limited to the U.K., it’s just not worth moaning about.

I’d hazard a guess that some people may still need it when attending a conference or giving a presentation in which the projector may only have VGA. Additionally, a lot of university settings have these built-in units where staff can plug their laptop in directly via multiple inputs including VGA. I never use it, because it can be fiddly and students get bored when I’m speaking let alone when trying to sort out A/V connections.

Just as an aside, I use VGA as a permanent solution in my home office as I have a handful of old LCD monitors and use one as an extra display for my 2018 Mac Mini (soon to be replaced with the M1!). I use an HDMI/VGA adapter for that connection.

I wish these things would say very clearly whether they have pass-through power or not. It's like they want to obscure that. I look at this and have to assume "no."
