FAQ USB-C HUBS
The M1 has a lot of problems with USB-C hubs right now. Apple are aware of these problems and will most likely patch them soon. Our advice is to be patient. The problems occur with any brand.
We would love to get information about any problems that you get though. Try to be as precise as possible.
The M1 is the new CPU from Apple that is based on a different architecture(RISC) than normal Intel processors. It’s basically a scaled up phone CPU that executes some calculations faster, meaning a faster computer. Right now the M1’s doesn’t support two external displays.
If you are uncertain if you have a M1, they became available in November 2020 och exist right now in 3 different versions(Macbook Air 13, Macbook Pro 13″ and Mac Mini) – as of 22 of January, 2021.
Go to the Apple-logo and choose “about this mac”. Under “Chip” it should say ‘Apple M1’.
99 out of 100 times the fault actually isn’t the hubs.
1. Check for dust, dirt and grime in the USB-C port. Use canned air to clean the ports.
2. Your laptops USB-C port doesn’t support video. Either google your laptops datasheet to see what it can do or look for a “D” next to the port. There are alot of USB-C ports out there and they have renamed them since then. This link is just what ASUS had.
3. Plug in your computers USB-C powercord into the hub. The computers software might not send out enough power. For optimal use get a 75W PD charger from us, plug it into the hub and the hub to the computer.
4. Update your BIOS(Basic Input/Output System). ONLY do this through your laptop manufacturers webpage. Be sure to chose the EXACT model that you have. Their support page will direct you.
It depends on the model.

It depends on the model.

8 Port USB-C Hub, 3 Port USB-C Hub.
A large part of Apple’s computers has a design flaw with the 2,4 Ghz wifi. It’s usually MacBooks in combination with hubs that has USB 3.0. Electromagnetic interference is created that can knock out the signals.
The solution is as simple as ordinary aluminum foil. This is the actual link we got from Apple.
A second solution is going to: Launchpad > System Preferences > Network > Settings(gear icon) > Set Service Order > Move “WIFI” to second or third place instead of first. This solution is less tried, but should supposedly work.
Hopefully Apple will fix this problem with future products.

There are two common faults here.
The iOS 13.1.3 update in particular introduced alot of wireless charging bugs. Make sure to update to iOS 14 or later(released 16 sept, 2020). Some users even need to do a hard reset.
The other fault is that iPhone 11 and later changed some standards for QI-wireless charging. So if you have bought our phone holders with wireless charging(The PD-charger and the charging pad works fine) and it doesn’t work, contact us below with your adress and we will send you a new module that works with your new phone.
