Mini-DisplayPort and Thunderbolt sockets feature heavily on modern laptops, tablets and PCs, but not all monitors, projectors and TVs share the same love affair with DisplayPort, often offering only HDMI, or the older VGA standard. In the past, connecting Mini-DisplayPort devices to VGA or HDMI displays required a separate cable for each occasion, but with this handy travel-sized adapter, you can plug in just about any standard display using the cable it already has.
Choose between either HDMI or VGA and connect a single display to any DisplayPort-compatible Thunderbolt socket, or a standard Mini-DisplayPort socket on any PC or Mac based device and enjoy immediate conversion to HDMI or VGA. Just plug in any regular HDMI or VGA cable (like the one already attached to your display) and it’ll be good to go for resolutions up to 1920×1080 Full HD on VGA or a whopping 4K @ 30hz on HDMI!
Just check that your Mini-DisplayPort source has support for HDMI and VGA compatible video output – read your device manual or look for the D++ symbol to know if your source is compatible with this type of adapter cable. This adapter is not bi-directional, and does not convert HDMI/VGA devices to work on Mini-DisplayPort screens.
