If you want it to power your laptop you have to be aware of a few things - this is going to get complicated. You need to know:
- The wattage required by your laptop in my case 85w (THIS WILL NOT CHARGE THE 15Inch MACBOOK - that’s 87w higher than this can deliver).
- The power requirement of the charger. If you buy a 60w charger the power delivery may not be 60w. In my case my Anker charger was only a 30w charger - an additional 30w was used to power the charger
- the power requirement of the hub. That’s 15w
So if you use the 100w charger that came with the Mac minus the 15w power consumption of the hub and you have 85w - just enough to power the MacBook.
I’m only giving 3 stars because they really don’t make this clear. Anker sell a lot of different power supplies and adapters and it would be great to see a table of the power supplies and this hub comparing what power output you will get.
*[EDIT] I’ve now tried this with a 30w/18w USB-C Anker 12v car charger and it passes charge power through to the iPad as expected. The previous charger I tried was an Anker 18w USB-C 12v car charger but for whatever reason it didn’t pass power through.
I’ve tested the SD card reader, the micro SD card reader, the USB A/3 ports (with an external USB-3 spinning hard drive) and the USB-C data ports, all work just fine now. I can get iPad audio out through the USB-C port whilst simultaneously charging the iPad through the PD port. Big thumbs up!!!
I’d say the only drawback is the cable is quite short and not swappable.
*[previous review] The reason for 4 stars*[now 5 stars!] is that this does not pass power through to my iPad Pro 11” as I’d hoped, so you can’t use the hub and charge the iPad at the same time. On first connecting the charging spund emits abs the battery icon goes green but then a second layer it goes off. I tried with two different power sources (one standard 2.4a USB-A car charger, and one anker PD car charger delivering up to 9v/2a) to rule that out but no luck. It’s possible it will work on a mains charger but I haven’t tried that yet.
This hub seemed to be of high quality materials but once i plugged it into my ipad and put a thumb drive in it it didn’t work
Ill contact customer support and see what will happen
Anker contacted me and offered a full refund
They have such a high quality customer service
Build: Well built, very sturdy- casing for this hub is no different than other Anker products-sturdy and slightly matt finish giving the feel of an expensive and trustworthy product, even being a very slim hub (only 15mm thickness). Usage: with 7 ports, it makes it a Must-Have product for the current working-from-home situation due to Covid-19. I know multiple friends and colleagues who have bought this and very happy. Power Port (PD) is great to connect to the laptop firewire, HDMI to connect the monitor, multiple USB ports for Keyboard, Mouse, Headset and camera. Not to mention USB-C to charge mobiles. Completely silent with no buzzing sound, unlike some cheap hubs. PD port allowed me to keep my laptop closed and still use it.
It is slightly expensive than other similar hubs in the market.
It is not an issue but due to lack of DTI or VGA connection to older monitors and Lack of LAN (RJ45 connection) I had to buy another hub to go with this Anker hub. It works fine with both hubs together. Maybe Anker needs to have a third version with a different combination.
Overall: Well made product, been using for 5 months and zero complaints so highly recommended. Lifesaver for working-from-home. wouldn't have done without it.
