The USB-C dock comes equipped with 7 ports including a 4K HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB-C ports, SD and microSD card slots, so it allows you to connect more external devices with your MacBook or USB-C equipped laptop, and its power pass through technology lets you use it to charge your smartphone, Bluetooth headphones and other devices when it connects with your computer. In addition, the integrated rugged cable ensures you always have a connection handy.
Bear in mind that not all USB-C ports are created equal. It’s not uncommon for a notebook to have a USB-C port with just USB 3.0 speeds. USB 3.1 speeds are considerably faster. If you’re not sure what your notebook has, ask in our forums!
