Description

The compact LMP USB-C Basic Hub brings back the vital connectivity to the 12" MacBook, 13" MacBook Air or the 13" and 15" MacBook Pro: 3 USB 3.0 ports, SD and microSD card reader and a USB-C port for Power Delivery (pass-through power from USB-C power adapter to laptop).

The USB 3.0 ports transfer data from and to the laptop and are ideal for attaching multiple USB devices such as an external USB HDD/SSD enclosure, a USB mouse or a USB printer. The marked USB port (BC1.2/1.5 A) can charge a smartphone or tablet with up to 1.5 A when Power Delivery (PD) is attached. The card reader supports SD (including SDHC/XC formats) as well as microSD memory cards and transfers photos and videos quickly to the computer. The USB-C port can be used to charge the laptop (using the advanced PD 3.0 standard) and supply more power to the USB 3.0 ports (up to 3 A with PD).

Compact and versatile, the LMP USB-C Basic Hub suits the everyday needs of the digital world.

Note: Not compatible with Apple USB SuperDrive

FAQ

FAQ Categories: Connection

The total power output to the USB 3.0 ports is limited to 2.0 A without a USB-C power adapter attached (no PD) and 3.0 A with PD. By adding another USB device, the total power consumption of all USB 3.0 ports must have gone over the 2 A (no PD) or 3.0 A (with PD), resulting in the shot-down of all USB 3.0 ports.
You must either attach the USB-C power adapter to get more power to the ports (3.0 A max.) or disconnect one of the USB devices so the total power consumption is within the limits.
Without PD (2.0 A), you can typically mount 1x external USB 2.5" HDD/SSD (bus powered), 1x USB Flash and 1x USB mouse (low-energy devices). With PD (3.0 A), you should be able to connect up to 2x external USB 2.5" HDD/SSD (bus powered) plus 1x USB Flash or 1x USB mouse (low-energy devices). Note that the power consumption of any attached device varies (e.g. depending on the type of HDD or SSD in use for 2.5" HDD/SSD and the USB-SATA PCBA in use) and therefore cannot be guaranteed.

Basically, you can use only the iMac (27-inch, Late 2009) and iMac (27-inch, Mid 2010) with a Mini-DisplayPort connection with the current Mac with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports. You need a USB-C to Mini-DisplayPort adapter (e.g. 16134/16138, LMP USB-C to Mini-DisplayPort adapter) or a USB-C dock with Mini-DisplayPort port (e.g. 18641/18645/19009, LMP USB-C Travel Dock 4K 9 Port or 17113/17278/18954, LMP USB-C Compact Dock 4K 8 Port or 17116, LMP USB-C Display Dock 4K 10 Port). Then a Mini-DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort cable (8305, LMP Mini-DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort cable) must be attached to the dock and the iMac.
With iMac (Mid 2011 to Mid 2014), it is possible to use the iMac as monitor with a Thunderbolt connection only. With a newer iMac, a Target Mode with an iMac is not possible anymore.

FAQ Categories: Hardware

It is normal that any USB-C hub or dock becomes hot when attached to the laptop. The aluminum housing is meant to dissipate the heat from the inside to the environment. There is a number of chipsets working on the inside which are producing some heat since they are constantly in a stand-by position to react quickly should any port be used. The surface temperature is well within the allowed limits and reaches about 40°C in stand-by mode, 43°C under normal use and a max. of 48°C when all ports are in full use, CPU load at 100% and PD attached. The heat does neither pose a danger to the laptop or any attached device, nor does it influence the USB-C hub's/dock's performance or even shorten the life-span.
Furthermore, the surface appears to be hotter than it actually is since it is touched with the very senstive fingertips. We suggest to remove the USB-C hub/dock when not needed in order not to emitt unnecessary heat to the environment and not to use any energy.
