      Little loose feeling

      I purchased this as something for on the go as I really didn't want to have to get more dongles for my MBP but I don't like that it crowds the 1st thunderbolt port when you have it plugged into my MBP. I feel like it should be a little bit smaller. Also the bottleneck on it is CRAZY. I have some USB 3 SSD's and thunderbolt external drives that when I run a read write test on it it SLOWS WAY down! I don't off the top of my head remember the exact numbers but it was significant enough that I now no longer use it. I went and got yet another dongle that didn't have as much bottlenecking.

      Within 10 minutes of using the USB 3.1 Type-C Charging Bridge, I have experienced extreme heat when touched. The heat that is being released when using the product has grown my concerns towards this product. Not only that, but I have two problems with the JCH349 which involves a device being plugged in. When I plug in my iPhone 7 Plus, my MacBook disables the JCH349 because it uses to much power. When I also plug in my iPhone I hear a noise coming out from the JCH349, which is odd because an adapter does not have to make noises.

      I just got my MBP 13 and here comes the dilemma of having dongles. I am not used to it coming from iMac and MBP. I originally purchased the Hyper Drive as it was recommended by the guy from Best Buy but sadly, it didn't work. This dongle worked as soon as I plug it in and it was super fast. I was contemplating between this and belking USB C to USB port which was $5 less but when I saw that the data rate is double, I immediately decided and boy, it was the best decision. Go grab this now and save some bucks.

      This is a critical item when using a tablet as an auxiliary cabled monitor with one of the apps that lets you use a tablet as a secondary monitor over a USB cable. Just run a data/charge cable from your tablet to the USB 2 port on the bridge and plug your wall power brick into the USB C port in the bridge and you can simultaneously charge your laptop & tablet while using the tablet as an external monitor. This dongle should be bundled with every one port USB-C machine.

      Not qualified for 2016 MacBook pro

      I am very disappointed with this product. I purchased this product to use with my new MacBook pro. I plugged it in and was running the duet program with my iPad as well as charging through the USB-C port and the device began to overheat and smell as if it was burning. I took it out and the upon doing so realized the device was extremely hot. I am very unsatified with the product. Would not reccoment purchasing it.

      I bought this adapter to use with my new MacBook Pro 2016. Since the machine uses type c connectors I thought I would give this a try at the recommendation of a Best Buy employee. After I got home I learned that this adapter does not fit with a MacBook case on it. I tried but it’s a very loose connection. I ended up exchanging this for the Apple adapter which I am very pleased with.

      I've had it about a week and it works great with a few issues: -Seems a little loose fitting in the USB C port on my Samsung Galaxy TabPro S. Other USB C adapters I've tried fit fine. Doesn't seem to effect performance, but could be an issue down the road. -Adds quite a bit of bulk to my device, but mileage will vary depending on the device used.
