Universal Compatibility Simplify your IT Environment

Tired of checking if your dock is Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C even though they share the same connector? Wish that both protocols would work together regardless of what laptop you have? CalDigit has solved this challenge and developed the USB-C Pro Dock. A next-generation dock that will adapt to any USB-C (Type-C) laptop it connects to. No drivers. No Adapters. It just works! The days of checking Tech Specs are gone.

Charge your laptop, add devices and light up dual monitors, all with a single cable, regardless of your connectivity. For the first time ever go from a Mac (Thunderbolt 3) to a Windows PC (USB-C or Thunderbolt 3) or even a USB-C Chromebook without any challenges. It doesn’t just stop at computers, the USB-C Pro Dock also works with the iPad Pro, Windows USB-C phones/tablets and Android USB-C phones, delivering a full desktop experience with external monitors, keyboard, mouse, Ethernet, external USB drives and charging.

​Whatever you thought of docking solutions. Think again! The USB-C Pro Dock redefines the docking experience with a solution that works everywhere.* Can your dock do that?

*Full dock functionality depends on the host computer’s capabilities. Please contact your host device manufacturer to confirm external display, host charging, and USB device support.

USB-C & Thunderbolt 3 Dock with Dual 4K Connectivity

Whether your laptop is USB-C® or Thunderbolt™ 3, the USB-C Pro Dock re-writes the rule book on what a docking solution is capable of by supplying dual monitors, charging, and connectivity for both types of laptops.

Laptop Charging

No matter if you’re connected to a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C laptop, the USB-C Pro Dock will charge your laptop up to 85W, making it a perfect companion for any Mac or Windows PC*.

*Windows PC users must check if their USB-C port is capable of doing laptop charging as not all PC manufacturers have added this functionality to their USB-C ports, limiting them to data or display only.

Dual Display Connectivity Built-In

The USB-C Pro Dock has two built-in DisplayPort connectors for directly adding dual 4K 60Hz monitors to your laptop without the need for any USB-C Video Adapters.

Need to connect a non-DisplayPort monitor, such as HDMI? Just use an “Active” DisplayPort to HDMI cable.

* Some Windows Thunderbolt 3 laptops only support one DisplayPort stream from Thunderbolt 3 port, as the result, such laptops can output up to a single 4K 60Hz or dual 4K 30Hz monitors. Please verify the Thunderbolt 3 port capability with your Windows laptop provider.

​** MacBook 12-inch models introduced in 2015, 2016 and 2017 have only one single USB-C port. These USB-C MacBooks can only support dual monitors in mirrored mode.

Charge your laptop, add devices and light up dual monitors, all with a single cable, regardless of your connectivity.

It doesn’t just stop at computers, the USB-C Pro Dock also works with Apple’s USB-C iPad Pro, iPad Air (4th Gen), Windows USB-C phones/tablets and Android USB-C phones, delivering a full desktop experience with external monitors, keyboard, mouse, Ethernet, external USB drives and charging.

Fully Connected

All The Time

Every Time

The ports on the USB-C Pro Dock work contemporaneously. This means that all of your peripherals can be plugged in whilst still providing up to 85W of laptop charging. Most inexpensive USB-C hubs, dongles and some desktop docks on the market, share the limited power source among all your attached devices. The worst case scenario for these devices are to randomly drop out from your computer or data loss. This is not an issue with CalDigit products as the USB-C Pro Dock’s ports work all the time, every time.

Docking Station Utility

CalDigit offers a free software utility that makes it incredibly easy to disconnect all the external drives connected to the USB-C Pro Dock with a single click.

*Currently this docking utility is only available for macOS.

USB4 Ready

The next generation of USB4 is around the corner and offers higher performance than the current USB 3.2 standard. Whether you’re using current USB technologies or future USB4 laptops, the USB-C Pro Dock will work on it all.*

*Full dock functionality depends on the host computer’s capabilities. Please contact your host device manufacturer to confirm external display, host charging, and USB device support.

Stand Alone Charging

The front-facing USB-A port on the USB-C Pro Dock offers Stand Alone Charging functionality that allows the dock to charge USB devices, such as iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch up to 7.5W without the laptop connected.

SuperDrive

CalDigit is known for its Mac-centric design and is passionate about designing products that compliment Apple devices aesthetically and functionally. While none of the other USB-C docks on the market is able to support Apple’s SuperDrive, CalDigit’s USB-C Pro Dock is to deliver such compatibility *. These little details are what sets CalDigit apart from the rest.

*SuperDrive support in macOS requires one time only driver installation. Please download the driver here.
