The StayGo mini is a smaller version of Twelve South's StayGo USB-C hub, featuring a USB-A port, a USB-C port for passthrough charging, an HDMI port, and a headphone jack.

The pocket-sized StayGo Mini is available in either black or white, and it is compatible with Apple's USB-C Macs and iPads.

Twelve South offers a short 0.5-meter cable with the StayGo Mini for use with the iPad, and there's also a longer desktop cable for those who prefer more cord length. It can also be used plugged directly into an ‌iPad‌ or Mac.

The StayGo Mini is available from Twelve South for $59.99.

USB-A is really still a thing for people? Isn't it cheaper in the long run to replace whatever old USB-A device you have with a newer better USB-C one than to keep buying these huge hideous dongles/hubs?
I can probably count the number of USB-C thumb/flash drives on the market on one hand. External portable USB drives that come with a USB-C cable? Same. Scanner? Printer? ZERO come with a USB-C cable. Show me a 3rd party wireless keyboard/mouse set where the receiver is USB-C. There is a myriad of devices that come with only USB-A cables. So it is really still a thing? I would say most definitely.

My sister still has a piece of equipment she needs for her business that uses a serial port, for which she needs a USB adapter.

So yeah, there will be USB-A to USB-C use cases for the foreseeable future.

For your everyday drive, yes; but for other equipment is not that easy. I have a Data Acquisition System (DAQ) I use for research that costs around $10K and connects via USB A. I could find workarounds but iPad’s portability plus what I already have is better than re-wiring the whole thing.

Ooo. You're post is popular! :)
Out of 40 years of personal electronic stuff I JUST bought something that uses USB-C. A Samsung 500GB SSD drive...but thankfully it came with a USB-C to USB-A cable. :)
We have easily over $400,000 worth of function generators, precision multimeters, precision power supplies/analyzers, oscilloscopes, etc. out in the lab. I think one has a mini-USB connector. Just about all of them have GPIB if that helps. :)

You have obviously not been reading comments sections for the last couple of years. Lots of people are vehement that they still have legacy devices that need USB-A. It may be more of a convenience thing at this point with trying to reduce the number of adaptors. Having it built into this hub might simplify that.
