Advice on usb type C hubs

Newer devices have fewer ports. New Latitude 7240 laptop with newer type C usb connections.  What's are good powered hubs for connecting older usb devices, mice, external hard drives, printers. I'm assuming they should be powered.

If no extreme situations (for example, connecting 6 external traditional spinning hdd's), USB-C hubs do NOT have to be powered
