USB 3.0 Hub for HP Pavilion X2 Detachable

Product Name: HP Pavilion x2 Detachable
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Paviion x2 detachable device with two ports - USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 type C. The charger is connected to the last port. 

A. My question is, due to the lack of more ports, is it possible to connect a USB 3.0 type C hub to the USB 3.0 port (instead of the charger)?

B. If yes, will it be still possible to charge the computer via the hub? 

 

C. Assuming that it is a "Yes" for question A, which hubs are recommended?

 

Best Regards,

Tal Barak.

Hello, @iamtal – Hope you are well :)

 

Welcome to the HP Support Forums!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel!

 

I am afraid the answer to your question A is a “No” :( The charger only works when connected to the type-C USB port.

If you can find a hub which supports the USB type-C port, then I would recommend using that.

 

I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!

Cheers :)
