Add connectivity to your Surface Pro X with these hubs and adapters

Best USB-C Adapters and Hubs for Surface Pro X Windows Central 2019

The Surface Pro X comes equipped with two USB-C ports, Surface Connect, and a Nano-SIM slot for LTE connectivity. If that collection doesn’t seem up to the task of connecting all your favorite peripherals, we’ve rounded up a bunch of portable hubs and adapters that will add connectivity without compromising the mobility of your Pro X.

If we’re making some suggestions

All of these hubs and adapters for the Pro X make more portable alternatives to full-size docking stations, and you should be able to find something that suits your needs. If you’re still wondering which one makes the most sense, we can offer some further recommendations.

The VAVA 9-in-1 adapter is a relatively pricey choice compared to other options on the list. Still, it brings outstanding connectivity that fills in the gaps left by the Pro X. You get a 3.5mm audio port for connecting headphones or speakers without Bluetooth, and an Ethernet port allows for far faster-wired internet. UHS-I SD card and microSD card readers let you connect removable storage to the Pro X, and three USB-A ports (two 3.0 and one 2.0) give you options for older accessories and thumb drives. An HDMI port offers video out, and you can even connect a USB-C power adapter to send power back to the Pro X.

The adapter is made of an aluminum alloy for added durability, and the host cable running back to the Pro X measures six inches (15.2cm) so you’re not feeling cramped with it plugged in.

If you’d just like to add a 3.5mm audio jack to the Pro X for your headphones or speakers, Microsoft’s official Surface adapter will do the trick. There’s not really anything extraordinary about it, but there’s no doubt many people will be grabbing it instead of relying on Bluetooth connectivity.
