Review: NOVOO USB C Hub – Small But Packed With Features

Having only USB C ports on your laptop can make your life hard. Specially if you have a MacBook or a Google Chromebook with only USB C ports! Luckily there are many hubs and the NOVOO USB C Hub is one of them. This hub is reasonably priced, let’s see if it meets our expectations!

Introduction & Specifications

Having one or two USB C ports on your laptop is just not enough. I don’t know if this is a trick from the manufacturers to sell a hub, but you need one. There are a lot of hubs available which are priced very differently. The NOVOO USB C Hub is priced in the lower part of the mid range, but offers everything you need. For example, there are three USB 3.0 ports on there and it supports up to 60W (20Vx3A) power to charge your device. There is a little side note since the NOVOO USB C Hub also supports the Apple 87W power adapter to charge your MacBook.

Unboxing

The box of the NOVOO USB C Hub is pretty and I like the bright orange color of it. On the back we find a lot of information about the hub as well as some of the ports and the performance of the ports.

Opening the box, we see the hub in the box. Another thing to notice is that there is no plastic in the box. Good job NOVOO!

Besides the hub, there is also a manual to explain the features of the NOVOO USB C Hub.

Hardware & Design

The design is something that stands out to me. The cable is well protected in the handle and this will, hopefully, result in a longer lifetime of the cable. All the ports are easily accessible and it is very clear which port is used for what.

This hub is not super big, which is a good thing. If you are travelling or have to put it in your backpack, you don’t want to have a huge hub. NOVOO thought of this and the size is acceptable, specially seen the features on there.

The materials feels good and solid and I have faith that this hub will last long and can handle a bump or drop from the kitchen table. (I won’t try it, but is it happens, NOVOO will probably survive.)

Features

To use your laptop or Chromebook, you might need a hub. Some ports are left out by the manufacturer to save space or money. This prevents your for example to connect a network cable or a ‘normal’ USB stick. The NOVOO USB C Hub is packed with ports and features to make your life easier. Let’s have a look at all the available ports on the hub.

Ports

On the NOVOO USB C Hub, we find several different ports which we all need to fully use your laptop or Chromebook. Some of these ports are essential, if you ask me. Like LAN or HDMI to connect with a screen. What do you think about a ‘normal’ USB port? Luckily all of these, and more, are available on the NOVOO USB C Hub! Here is a list of all the ports on there:

Ports:

    USB C (Power Delivery 60W)
    3*USB-A 3.0 ports

Concerns

According to Microsoft, USB 3.0 interferes with 2.4GHz WiFi. They send out on the same frequency. If you have any issue with this, please set your router to 5GHz. This should solve the problem.

Before you start connecting a lot of power consuming products, please keep in mind that the NOVOO USB C Hub can not handle more then 900mA at same time.

This mobile working station is also backed by a 12-month 100% satisfaction guarantee! Isn’t that great?

Conclusion

With the NOVOO USB C Hub, you get a lot of ports and features with it. This makes the use of your laptop/Chromebook/Smartphone even easier. It is priced in the lower part of the mid range and, seen the features and design, that is a good thing.

I can recommend this hub to everybody who is struggling with the missing ports on the MacBook or Chromebook. Just USB C is not enough these days!
