Despite the relatively varied connectivity, you might be looking to add more ports in the form of an adapter or hub. The options rounded up here will do the trick without compromising the mobility of your Pro 7.

All of these hubs and adapters for the Pro 7 make more portable alternatives to full-size docking stations, and you should be able to find something that suits your needs. If you're still wondering which one makes the most sense, we can offer some further recommendations.

VAVA's 8-in-1 USB-C adapter (opens in new tab) is a great pick as long as you don't mind the relatively high price. It adds a second UHS-I microSD card reader and a full-size SD card reader, as well as an Ethernet port for fast wired internet. Connect older accessories with two USB-A 3.0 and one USB-A 2.0 port, and connect to a TV or monitor with HDMI. An extra USB-C port on the adapter lets you plug in a charger to send power back to your Pro 7, keeping the battery topped up.

If you'd rather not spend quite as much money and don't mind eschewing Ethernet, a USB-A 2.0 port, and power delivery back to your Pro 7, the Anker 5-in-1 adapter (opens in new tab) should make a better fit. You still get UHS-I microSD and SD card readers, two USB-A 3.0 ports, and HDMI for video out. It's all built into a slim aluminum case to dissipate heat and stand up to use, plus you get an 18-month warranty to protect your purchase.
