Behind the Design V1

September 11, 2020 3 min read

USB-C to Ethernet cable converter is the solution for a wired internet connection on your USB-C laptop without its own network port. On this page, we want to tell you something more about this product.


WHY USB-C Ethernet Adapter?

Quite simply, we just want to add one more choice when you come to a daily use USB C product

Back on then, after observing some of the USB C ethernet adapters, actually most of them, we saw the need to create more friendly, better quality, with simple but dependable daily use product. Not plastic covers, not thin cables, and not good looking.



Next, we focus on the real problems collecting from the Reddit/Twitter/Amazon

  • My home office is a long way from my router and sometimes my connection was unstable.
  • I had a bad wifi signal in my college apartment.
  • How to survive with only one USB-C port on your new laptop?
  • What is the best USB to Ethernet adapter?
  • Cannot work well with networks, modems, and routers on my new computer.
  • Runs hot, drops connections.
  • Overheats and stops working.
  • ...



Product Design

After that, we came to define the product.  We believe quality product must have these feature.


  • Functional with proper size
  • Tough & Flexible build-in cable
  • Better material for heat dissipation capability



  • Good looking
  • Long-lasting
  • Acceptable defective rate




We believe quality products must be those products that were ever-improving, and attention to details.



01 Build Quality

Our pieces are made with the top-quality parts, not as other ‘exchanging short-term profit for lost reputation & re-branding later’ brands.

We pick the connectors that are in full compliance with the association standards. 

Choose to use the unibody connector (when considering making repeated connections with a USB port, carrying and handling the cable, physical strain like that can add-up).





02 Reliable Fast

Well, speed is the most important part of this product.

uni Gigabit Network Adapter supports auto-detection for standard 10.100.1000 Mbps networks.

Thanks to the Realtek RTL8153-CG 10/100/1000M Ethernet controller. With state-of-the-art DSP technology and mixed-mode signal technology, the RTL8153 offers high-speed transmission over CAT 5 UTP cable or CAT 3 UTP (10Mbps only) cable. 



03 Wide Compatibility

We pick the most stabilized chipset, Realtek RTL8153.

The RTL8153 supports driver-free installation for various Operating Systems, including Android (Linux), and MAC OS via built-in CDC ECM technology, as well as driver support for Windows 8.1. 

Proudly said, back to 2019, we are the first group of tester to tried the adapter with the newest iPad Pro 2018 by ourself. 

Just to make sure you can use the adapter without issues.



04 Simple & Small

This adapter sits at 2.3 x 1 x 0.7 inches, while weighing as little as an ounce.

Composed by aluminum, both body and the USB-C ends. 

Moreover, we had tried more than 3 different degrees of oxidation surface, just to pursue a better surface and nicer finished. 

The cable cover isn't simple polymer but a braided textile one -- which means it won't fight whatever shape you need it to be in as much.




All small details show who Uni's building this product for:
