What you need to know

  • Dell announced a 7-in-1 USB-C adapter with a retractable cable.
  • The adapter has 2 USB-A ports, a USB-C port, an HDMI port, and an Ethernet port.
  • The adapter features a retractable cord for easy cable management.

Dell's YouTube channel recently shared a video showing off the Dell USB-C Mobile Adapter - DA310. It's a 7-in-1 USB-C adapter that makes it easy to connect a laptop to several accessories at a desk. The adapter appears on Dell's YouTube channel and its UK website, but is not on Dell's US website at the time of publication. The adapter lists at £139.19 (opens in new tab) on Dell's website, which is roughly $191.

The Dell USB-C Mobile Adapter - DA310 has two USB-A ports, a USB-C port, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, a VGA port, and an RJ-45 port. The adapter supports power passthrough up to 90W, which should help keep most laptops topped up. It also supports up to 10DGbps of data transfer speed.

With the USB-C port, you can connect to monitors at 4K at 30Hz. If you use the adapter's HDMI 2.0 port instead, you can get 4K resolution up to 60Hz.

A unique aspect of the Dell USB-C Mobile Adapter - DA310 is its round design. With ports pointing out in several directions, you can fit larger adapters side-by-side without overlapping. The round design of the adapter also houses a cable that can retract. It's a similar design to the Dell USB-C Mobile Adapter - DA300 (opens in new tab) that launched in 2018.

  • That's really nifty, a little pricey at £140....
    Hopefully, we will see similar usb c adapters with the same or better features from third parties at a much lower price point.
