The extended docking functionality is one of the greatest advantages of Thunderbolt 3 ports because the higher bandwidth means that even more devices can be connected to a port than with Thunderbolt USB-C 3.1 Gen 2. The latest Thunderbolt 3 dock from Anker fully utilizes this bandwidth. A 4K monitor can be operated at up to 60 Hz via the HDMI port, the second Thunderbolt 3 port can even operate 5K monitors. If you use a USB-C to a dual HDMI splitter, a total of three monitors can be connected.

A notebook that is connected to the dock via Thunderbolt 3 is charged with up to 85 watts. According to the manufacturer, a 13-inch MacBook Pro ( from 1,459 euros on Amazon ) can be fully charged in less than two hours. In addition to HDMI and the second Thunderbolt 3 port, four 5 Gbit/s fast USB-A ports, two 10 Gbit/s USB-C ports, AUX, Gigabit Ethernet and an SD and a microSD card reader have also included Thunderbolt hub.

Price and availability

The Anker PowerExpand Elite 13-in-1 Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station is now available to buy via the store at a price of $299.99. The manufacturer also gives an 18-month warranty on the USB-C docking station.

Last month, Atech Flash Technology, which owns the Blackjet brand, has announced a new Blackjet TX-1CXQ Thunderbolt 3 Card Reader for CFexpress Type B and XQD memory cards and the Blackjet TX-4DS Thunderbolt 3 Hub Dock station with four compartments. These devices would be designed for both photographers and videographers.
