CalDigit. Serious Storage.
As we progress further into single cable connectivity, we are demanding for all our devices to be able to do more than they did in the previous generation. CalDigit has been leading the way with laptop charging when it comes to docking solutions and we are now adding that great functionality to our storage devices.
Charge Your Laptop

The AV Pro 2 will charge your laptop up to 30W. This means that you don’t need to connect your laptop’s charger. Just use the supplied USB-C cable to charge your laptop. Why 30W? The AV Pro 2 is a USB 3.1 Type-C device. The maximum power delivery possible through USB-C is 60W. In the case of the AV Pro 2, 30W is allocated to laptop charging and the remaining 30W is allocated to powering the device itself.






Connect Your USB Accessories

We’re all running out of ports, especially in the world of Thunderbolt™ 3. It just makes sense to add ports wherever possible to maximize your laptop’s connectivity options. The AV Pro 2 does that by adding two USB 3.0 Hub ports to the back of the device.



This means that you can add any USB device to your laptop as you would if you were directly attaching the device to your laptop via USB.

As you can see from the image below we have the CalDigit Tuff drive connected to the AV Pro 2 via the USB 3.0 hub.









Back Up Your Files

Down to its core, the AV Pro 2 is a storage device. Built on the original AV Pro’s design aesthetic which adds a removable drive, the AV Pro 2 packs high storage capacities with great functionality. Traditional single-drive storage solutions do not have a removable drive design. Their hard drive is locked into the device and difficult to remove. The AV Pro 2’s removable drive allows users the freedom to upgrade and expand their storage.









Anyone Can Use It

The AV Pro 2 features two ways to connect the device to a laptop; USB-C and USB 3.0 Type-A. This means that if you’re using Thunderbolt™ 3 or USB-C you can utilize the Type-C port.

If you are not yet using Thunderbolt™ 3 or USB-C you can still connect the device to any USB 3.0 port. Charging functionality is restricted to Thunderbolt™ 3 and USB-C as power delivery is only available through the Type-C connection.






Choose Your Drive Type

Regardless of whether you need 3.5” HDDs for higher capacity or ultra-fast SSDs for the best performance, the AV Pro 2 has you covered. Available in capacities up to 6TB with a 3.5” HDD and 2TB with an SSD, the AV Pro 2 is extremely versatile. You can even buy a 3.5” HDD version and upgrade to an SSD in the future.

Cables

Included in the box is a USB-C cable and USB micro-B to USB-A cable.

Apple SuperDrive & Apple Keyboard Compatible

Certain Apple devices require more power from the USB ports they are connected to, and Apple recommends attaching those Apple devices directly to a Mac. CalDigit has developed an optional driver that allows the Apple SuperDrive and the Apple Keyboard to be compatible with the AV Pro 2’s USB 3.0 hub ports.






Keys & Stand

Inside the box you will also find the drive keys that eject and lock the hard drive inside the AV Pro 2. Also included is a stand for using the AV Pro 2 in an upright position.
Connect to Legacy Computers

If you haven’t yet updated to the latest computer you can still use the AV Pro 2 as storage device. Connect it to your USB 3.0 computer using the USB 3.0 port.
