What do you want to do with your uConsole?

I’m a lurker (hi!) as I’ve not (yet?) bitten the bullet, but from what I’ve seen in the documentation and mention in reviews the device’s USBC port is for charging only. That’s probably why you couldn’t get your Logitech adapter to work via that port?

there is a type 3 port right next to the charging port - I’ve added a 4? port type 2 usb-c board designed/and sold by a uConsole member that expands the unit to 3 type 2 usb-c ports/1 internal - the adapter plugs into the expansion slot (replaces the blank board on the wifi only uConsole) - the keyboard on the keyboard/mouse logitec worked when plugged into the type 3 port just the mouse pads don’t once I found that the type 3 port was the issue I plugged a USB to usb-c adapter and both keyboard and mouse work… thread: [extension] 4 usb hub extension board

Ah, my apologies. I thought you were referring to the built-in USBC port versus those of the expansion board, but I now see what you mean (using a USBC to USBA cable/adapter, right?).

I saw that expansion board and it seems super useful, precisely because that internal port is power only. I don’t think I’d personally ever need three (or four) ports as one (or two) would already be enough, but the bigger challenge for me is that that particular seller doesn’t yet ship to my neck of the woods. Well, technically my problem is that I haven’t even bitten the bullet and ordered a uConsole :sweat_smile:

yes I would have preferred 2 more standard usb ports versus the usb-c but it was a dimension issue so now I have some usb-c to usb socket short cables … I didn’t realize shipping was restricted - but it does add more handy ports other option is to plug in a hub… but then it gets bulky …
