    I’ve just received this usb-c to hdmi adapter:
    http://www.iczitech.com/product/product/index/id/231

    The problem is that it’s not working. I’ve checked the usb-c port with pendrive and usb->usb-c adapter and it’s not working too, even with usb mouse.
    So I’ve tried to charge it through the usb-c port and it’s working. Then I’ve tried to charge the power bank from the usb-c port – no success. Connect smartphone – no success.

    I’ve seen that on review @Cris was using usb-c hub with external power supply and it was working for him.
    So I would like to ask if you are able to power up HDD/mouse directly through the usb-c port?

    I think that the usb-c port is like the one in Cube i7 Book that you need an hub with external power supply to power up the devices and make it works.
    Is that right? Or I have a faulty unit (or the usb-.usb-c adapter)?

    Thanks for help!

    Thanks! Can you connect an USB mouse through an adapter or the hub without the external power supply?
    I just think that my unit is broken and don’t provide power, only charging works, USB LEDs lights up only on USB-A port.

    Maybe I need to install some drivers?

    I have my THinker i35 still and yes, I can use the type-c port without power just fine for everything. With or without the hub, HDD, my mouse etc with a type-c to USB adaptor. This is with my havit hub as seen in my videos. I use it all the time with my Thinker connected up to my monitor for a fanless desktop.

    Ok, case solved – my adapter was faulty, the new one allows me to connect the pendrive, etc.

    However the ICZI USB-C HDMI adapter still doesn’t work. I will try the Chris’s drivers backup, maybe there is some issue with Intel GPU drivers.

    So, I’ve checked and the adapter works on the new MacBook. It means that:
    a) Cube Thinker has HDMI alternate mode on USB-C (not DisplayPort)
    b) there’s something wrong with the Intel drivers that doesn’t detect external display

    @Cris, can you tell me more about you adapters? Do you know if they works with Macbooks or what alternate mode they support?
    Thanks! 😀

    Sorry, I don’t own any macs so can’t test that. I have a Havit brand one that is working up to 4k30hz. And the that also worked for get the name of it.

    Thay claim that it works with new Macbooks:
    https://www.amazon.com/Support-Delivery-Charging-SuperSpeed-MacBook/dp/B01IHJVZ4U

    So Thinker has DP-alternate mode and the only option is that I’ve lost some drivers after reinstalling the OS. Or maybe this is the only broken part of my unit?

    I am still looking for a proper usb-c to hdmi adapter. The recommended havit hub seems sold out.

    Gearbest:Maikou 7 in 1 Type-C to 2 USB 3.0 Hub - SILVER https://gearbest.app.link/zoJ92u1QcO
    This hub works great on the thinker. I tested HDMI external display (24″ 1080p) and worked perfectly

    @Carlos Gearbest has discontinued selling this hub, is this the same one that you have?
