Targus adds ACA44 Type-C Adapter for USB Data and “3-Pin” Power

Targus has released the ACA44 adaptor (a tip of sorts) for connecting the Targus "3-Pin" DC power cable implementations of Targus UDS with a USB Type-C Host at $59.99 SRP.

A blue power LED lights up to show power is applied to the ACA44 from the dock. It auto negotiates USB Type-C Power Delivery 2.0 at It can even be used to supply power to MacBooks and phones with Type-C PD. Note, PD of 20VDC may require a dock PSU with 20.5VDC output. The ACA44 has been tested with various Windows PC, MacOS X, Chrome OS, and even the new Android based Galaxy S8 platforms.
