What You Get: Anker USB-C to USB 3.1 Adapter, welcome guide, our worry-free 18-month warranty and friendly customer service.
– Works great with USB-C 3.1 ports.
– Works great when combined with Anker’s slim USB 3.0 hub to expand your number of USB 3.0 ports.
– I was able to power and mass file (30GB) transfer to 2 USB, 2.5″, hard drives (4TB each) using Anker’s hub with this USB-C adapter without any issues.
– Chokes up and disconnects/reconnects quickly after half an hour when plugged into a Thunderbolt 3 port. But this wasn’t advertised to work with Thunderbolt 3, so I won’t knock off a star for that.
– You’ll need a separate thunderbolt adapter if you don’t want to have your devices disconnect/reconnect every half hour when adapting from Thunderbolt 3.

Chuck:Works perfectly for my needs once I got it figured out. I have to use my separately powered USB3 hub, as the VX20 can’t supply enough power on its own for the hard drive (2.0TB traditional spinning disc style, 2.5″ laptop size without its own power source). However, that said, it’s a matter of:
1. Connect Anker adapter
2. Connect hub
3. Connect drive
4. Wait several minutes for the VX20 to read drive for the first time
5. Open file manager and transfer files as necessary
I use an EasyAcc hub I picked up on Amazon a couple of years ago, but would expect this to work with any powered hub. If you have a 3.5″ self powered HD, it may work without the hub, but I haven’t tried that combination to verify.
Emily Hedenlan:I used to have a Galaxy Note 3 and had a USB 3.0 OTG cable so I could connect it to my Canon 6D and use as an external screen for filming. After my Note 3 finally kicked the bucket, I upgraded to the Galaxy S8+ which uses a USB-C type connector so my old OTG cable was obsolete. Got this one and it works perfectly. I can connect to my camera and use my fancy new phone for an even better picture than my old Note 3. The response time is amazing and there is almost no delay between the phone screen and the camera screen.
So, for everyone asking if this will work with connecting your phone to your camera, yes it will! I haven’t tried just connecting the phone to my camera without using an app that’s meant for transferring files or using DSLR Controller to turn my phone into an external screen/control, but it works flawlessly with these apps.
John Willis:Snug after pushing harder than thought necessary. It seems fine, has the blue USB 3.0 colored interior. The Rubber/PVC is a bit stiff in the cable but that could be because it is new. Have a HP Folio G1 super thin, only two USB-C ports. When I first tried plugging it in it stopped far short of where it felt “seated”.. but tried again and pushed really hard.. and it snapped into place snug against the outside of the body of the laptop. I didn’t know USB-C had a push resistance in its spec. Its not damaged, its just required two clicks to get it into place. The first is about what your use to with USB 2.0 or normal USB 3.0 micro or mini plugs. With this one however there’s a lot more push back. Probably keeps it from falling out or a “gentle” tug from accidentally removing it. You have to heave-ho to haul it out of the socket.
