On Aliexpress I found some suitable options at a reasonable price, by the way, the original adapters of this type in the Apple company store are from 4990 rubles, and that in the end I ordered — all 9900 rubles.

I chose a model that fits snugly to the body Mac without the hanging wire (Ali, there are options for wiring), and closes both ports Thunderbolt — it seemed to me that it would be more convenient when, for example, need to carry the MacBook with the adapter or keep it on a stand or his lap.


This model has 7 connectors:

  • two USB 3.1 type-C (but only one of them is suitable for charging, but it’s not a marriage — in the goods description is provided);
  • two USB 3.0 type-A;
  • HDMI port;
  • the SD card slot;
  • card slot TF card.
