    With the Chuwi Hi8 Pro 8″ tablet being one of the first Chinese tablets to switch to a USB Type C connector for providing power and (OTG) connectivity, I was wondering if anyone in here knows what models of (powered) USB hubs we can use/buy to attach multiple USB devices (mouse, keyboard, flash key, …) to our tablets, and are capable of providing power to the tablet at the same time ???
    Would a simple USB Type C to female microUSB adapter/converter work and allow us to connect our existing USB hubs and gear to the USB Type C equipped tablet, or do we need to buy a new hub altogether ?

     

    @TechTablets : do you have any experience with this already ? Any advice that you can give us that might come in handy ???

    Simply connecting microUSB to USB-C Adapter to hub, flashdisk, or other dongle doesn’t work. I have to use a small gadget labeled ‘OTG Micro USB Hub’, powered by charger/powerbank and then connected to USB-C adapter. Then you can connect your usb thingies to the available ports on hub, or even daisychained to other hub to get more usb port.
