The best USB-C adapters and hubs for the refreshed Surface Laptop 4 add the ports you need on a day-to-day basis. Whether you need more USB, Ethernet, or SD cards, these affordable accessories can change the way you use your laptop. We've rounded up a bunch of the best right here.

If we're making some suggestions

All of the above USB-C adapters and hubs will complement the refreshed Surface Laptop 4. But if you're still wondering where to start, we can make a couple of further suggestions.

For a full USB-C hub, the CalDigit SOHO is a top option. CalDigit is maker of our pick for best Thunderbolt 3 dock and best laptop docking station, so it's no surprise that its compact hub is also an excellent pick.

The 10Gbps USB-C connection allows for dual 4K displays each at a 60Hz refresh rate, plus excellent performance for any connected accessories. You get a downstream USB-C port, DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, UHS-II SD card reader and microSD card reader, as well as AC adapter USB-C passthrough with up to 100W of charging power. It's all contained in a premium aluminum chassis with removable host cable.

If you need something more on the budget side, Anker's USB-C 5-in-1 hub is no doubt a better pick. It adds dual USB-A 3.0, HDMI (with support for a 4K display at a 30Hz refresh rate), and SD and microSD card readers.
