Need More Type-C Ports for Chromebook

I'm trying to find a hub product with multiple type-c ports.  
 
There are only two ports on ASUS Flip Chromebook. One I'm using for extended display, and the other I need to switch between keyboard dongle and charging. Super annoying!
 
I can't seem to find anything out there. Only hubs with multiple USB ports. Can anyone help?

Your Chrombook may not have enough of a power supply to support more ports.

 

Why would you need a keyboard dongle doesn't your Chrombook have a keyboard integrated into it.

Yeah, but when using my Chromebook as one of two displays, it's not convenient to reach and use the keyboard. And for some reason, my chrome can't detect the Bluetooth standalonen keyboard I purchased without a dongle.

Re: Need More Type-C Ports for Chromebook

They do have hubs that convert the USB Type C Adapter to a USB hub port. bobberuchi may be right though, these devices require far less power than many laptops and you will have severely underpowered device. 

 

Would a USB hub do good with an AC Adapter in place of this?

I don't need more USB ports, though. I need more type c. My Asus Chromebook Flip doesn't have an AC. It charges with a type c.

Well you can get a USB Type C hub but they are rare.

Re: Need More Type-C Ports for Chromebook

Maybe the ones for Mac are compatible. I don;t know how Chrome OS is coded but I know they use some kind of Linux code or a variant. 

 

I believe Mac OS had some based off it it as well so I don't see why the ones for Mac won't work on this unit with the Type C plug. Just a small thought, nothing more.

Another thought.

 

What version Blue Tooth is your Chromebook and what version is the keyboard.
