    Any of them *should* work, but some of the stories I've heard make me think I'd wait until the market has shaken out a bit more before springing for one.

    Oy! 

     

    Could you please post a picture of your installation? I'm a little afraid of the cable length... How do you do to not have a hanging station with this product?

     

    Thanks in advance for your answer. ^^

    The j5create JCA374 USB Type-C Multi-Adapter HDMI/Ethernet/USB 3.0 HUB/PD 2.0 works great on my Switch Alpha One 12. See http://j5create.com/our-products/usb-hub/jca374.html . It’s very compact. I bought mine on sale at Staples. Everything works well but I have not used the USB-C power delivery yet. I like to use the Ethernet connector in hotels rather than WiFi. I did follow the install instructions exactly btw.

     

    I just ordered a Targus 45W USB Type-C Wall Charger (APA93US) and hope it works with the j5create JCA374. It should do as the JCA374 is PD 2.0 rated and the Targus works with the Switch Alpha One 12. I will post when I have tried it. I will also see if it will charge my cell phone as well.

     

    Love my Acer Switch Alpha 12 :-)

     

    Cheers, Canadaloon

    Love my Switch Alpha 12!
