Help with power USB C 3.1 Solution for SSD Drive

Hello Forum!

I have the 2tb G-Technology G mobile SSD and I use for video editing. I’m hoping to find a solution and recommendation to purchase a Power USB C 3.1 hub so I can power the unit on and off and not yank it out of the computer each and every time I use it. As you know it does not have a power button, also give it just a bit longer cord, the cord on this thing is very short. I also want to be able to plug in the backup drive as well. Tech support said that this may effect the speed and efficiency of the hard drive.

Thank you for your help and suggestions!


USB - C cables can carry significantly more power, so they can be used to charge larger devices like laptops. They also offer up to double the transfer speed of USB 3 at 10 Gbps. While connectors are not backwards compatible, the standards are, so adapters can be used with older devices mykfcexperience
