FAQ

Yes, we offer international shipping for our customers overseas.

+ When will I be able to track my order?

As soon as your order is ready to be shipped, we will provide you with a tracking number.

+ Can I cancel my order after I have placed it?

Please visit the Contact Page and fill out the form under the Sales tab to have your order cancelled. You will need to provide your name, email, and order number in order to cancel the order. Please be advised that once your order has shipped, it cannot be cancelled and you will have to begin the return process in order to receive a refund.

Additionally, if you were a part of our Tier 1 Group (Orders made before January 10, 2017) and you cancelled your order but would like to re-order, we will allow you to place a new order (max of two additional Arc Hub's) with the original Tier 1 pricing. Simply fill out the form in the "Sales" tab and select "Tier 1 Promotion" as the reason for inquiry. This only applies to orders made before January 10, 2017.

+ Is the Arc Hub safe?

Yes, the Arc Hub is safe to use with the compatible devices above. Arc Hub is equipped with two safety protocols (two small circuit breakers) to prevent any damage to your computer. To put it simply, if you plug an external device that draws in too much power and either the Arc Hub or your computer cannot handle it, the Arc Hub will stop the flow of power and will not allow the device to work with your laptop.

+ Is the USB-C Cable safe?

Yes, the USB-C cable provided is safe to use for all USB-C laptops. We went to great lengths (searching for the right parts, the right manufacturer & long nights of testing) to ensure that the cable will not damage your computer.

+ Can I plug my external hard drive into Arc Hub?

Yes, the Arc Hub can be used with all external hard drives. Please note that only one external hard drive may be plugged in due to power restrictions.

Yes, the Arc Hub comes with a second USB-C port that can be used to charge your laptop or plug in an external USB-C device. Please note that the second USB-C port is for charging only and is not capable of data or video (Windows computers are excluded due to missing protocols in the laptop's software that allows Arc Hub to charge the laptop).

Yes, the Arc Hub does support the use of both HDMI and Mini Display Port. There are some restrictions, depending on what brand of laptop you are using.

+ Does the Arc Hub support dual displays?

Yes, but there are some restrictions due to the fact that only a single USB-C port is connected at all times. We will be addressing this in an upcoming update.
