I have been using the Huion 2020 Kamvas 13 since we went remote and it has been great! I initially had some connection issues until I realized I need to plug it in, run the Huion Tablet driver then turn it on. In that order. Every time.

It does have this proprietary cable  (you can see it in the upper right) that plus into upper of the two USB-C ports on the tablet and then splits into two USB-A and one HDMI plug. One USB-A  plug (the red one) provides power.

Kamvas Cable


I found an HDMI to USB-C adapter (this one) that works well. It uses a lot of ports (and assumes you have them all).

If you look at the picture below in the lower left, it looks like you can just run a cable from the lower of the two USB-C ports to a USB-C port on your computer.  Maybe you can, but I haven’t been able to do that. The hole in the tablet for the USB-C plug is very deep and narrow and most regular plugs don’t fit in there.

Huion Cabling options

I found one USB-C extender that let me use a regular USB-C cable, but the power was flaky, it stuck out really far and it was a lot more awkward to use than the 3 in 1 cable. And, frankly, the 3-in-1 works fine, but I like the elegance of using a single USB-C cable.

I do have a document camera (the Ipevo VZ-R HDMI/USB Dual Mode 8MP Document Camera), but I rarely use it now that I have the tablet. I will use it once we are back in the building, but for remote teaching, the Huion 2020 Kamvas 13 is working great (and it’s half the price of the Ipevo VZ-R HDMI/USB Dual Mode 8MP Document Camera).
