If you mean a USB-C hub, I've just plugged one in that has 3 USB-A ports and an ethernet port. I plugged a mouse in and the mouse works and I get an IP address on the ethernet port. It's a pretty generic no-name hub.

Exactly that is what I wanted to know, thanks.

Bonus question: If you plug in an ordinary USB-A charger, does it charge? I don't mean quick charge, but send juice to the Gemini?
dep

Atari Portfolio (yes, it still works and yes, I bought it new)
Libretto 110 CT (with docking station and all kinds of PCMCIA stuff)
And, now, a Gemini and, fortunately, a GPD Pocket

If you use the included usb-c - usb-a cable, it does charge slowly from my laptop.
