What can a Docking Station do for me?

Since we brought out our very first docking station we have been expanding people’s workflows and empowering them to connect all their devices with a single cable.


What problem does a Docking Station solve?

Adding a dock to your laptop allows you to connect extra ports in order to add USB devices, speakers, and microphones. In addition users can connect external monitors to their laptop. Using a dock means single cable simplicity. Integrate all your devices with one high performance cable!









How do I connect a Docking Station to my laptop?

Connecting a dock to your laptop is very easy. Many laptops feature a Thunderbolt™ or USB-C port. These ports are high performance interfaces that allow you to connect a dock and expand your connectivity.

All you need to do is connect a Thunderbolt™ cable or USB-C cable from your laptop to the dock and you instantly have extra ports!
