The world of USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 isn’t the easiest thing to navigate, but sometimes a product arrives that takes the stress and confusion out of it by ticking almost all of the boxes. This AUKEY USB-C to HDMI cable is a prime example of that, and we have a hookup for you, too.

What this cable offers is the chance to take a USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port and turn it into an HDMI cable, perfect for plugging into a TV or monitor of your choice. The cable itself supports 4K resolutions, so 3840 x 2160, at 30Hz. It’s obviously also backward compatible, so if you’re plugging this thing into a 1080p HD panel, you’re good to go as well.

Compatibility is key here, and this cable works fine with any USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 port, and it’s all a simple case of plugging the cable in and kicking back. The cable’s also 1.8m or 6-feet long, so you won’t need be sat atop the screen in order to plug your computer into it.

Oh, and the price? That’s arguably the best bit!
