Unlike most Thunderbolt docks on the market, CalDigit’s USB-C HDMI Dock provides up to 94W for charging a MacBook, which means that it has enough power to facilitate charging even the 16-inch MacBook Pro at full speeds. Most other docks top out at 87W.
Priced at $219.99, the USB-C HDMI Dock offers a total of 10 ports, including a Thunderbolt 3 port, two HDMI 2.0b ports, one 10Gb/s USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, three USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports that support transfer speeds up to 5Gb/s, an SD Card Reader, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and an Audio In/Out Combo Jack.
CalDigit’s USB-C HDMI Dock is compatible with all Thunderbolt and USB-C laptops, so it will work with all of Apple’s modern computers. It is also compatible with the USB-C iPad Pro models and the fourth-generation iPad Air, which is equipped with USB-C.
As a universal dock option, when paired with a Thunderbolt 3 laptop, the HDMI USB-C Dock offers a full 40Gb/s performance, and when connected to a USB-C laptop, it offers 10Gb/s performance. It is also compatible with machines that have Thunderbolt 4 ports.
With a Thunderbolt connection, the dock supports two 4K 60Hz displays through the HDMI 2.0 ports, while USB-C users can connect dual 2K 30Hz monitors or a single 4K 30Hz monitor. M1 Mac users can connect a single external monitor up to 4K 60Hz.
The HDMI USB-C Dock offers a few other bells and whistles. With CalDigit’s software, all external drives connected to the dock can be ejected with a click, and it supports standalone charging so you can charge accessories like the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch at up to 7.5W with no laptop connected.
