As Microsoft begins to adopt USB-C ports with the Surface Go and Surface Book 2, it looks like it's also starting to build out an ecosystem of adapters for those who still need access to legacy ports. Best Buy has now listed two USB-C adapters with little fanfare, both of which are set to launch on August 2, likely to coincide with the release of the new Surface Go (via Reddit).
The first adapter, available for $54.99, allows you to add an ethernet port and a standard USB Type-A port to your Surface via its USB-C port. The ethernet port can support transfer speeds of up to 1 Gbps, and a built-in light will show you when data is going back and forth.
The second adapter is much simpler, converting your Surface's USB-C port to a USB Type-A port. It's still a tad on the expensive side at $19.99, but it could come in handy if you're in need of another standard USB port.
Both adapters follow the release of a dongle Microsoft launched in June, allowing the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro to add as USB-C input via the Surface Connect port.
So far, Microsoft hasn't made any noise about these new adapters. However, they're set to launch on August 2, according to Best Buy's listings. If you're planning to pick up a Surface Go and need access to some legacy ports, or want to add to your Surface Book 2, then they may be worth a look.
