CES 2020Larger versions of the Linedock multi-port USB-C adapter are in development. This hub that boasts up to 2TB of storage sits under a MacBook, so increasing the size for the 15- and 16-inch MacBook Pro makes sense — and makes room for additional features.

A 13-inch version debuted at CES last year. And the company is back at CES 2020 to show off the two upcoming larger iterations.

Larger MacBooks require a bigger Linedock

These will have a 27,000 mAH battery, a considerable uptick from the earlier version. They’ll also have more ports, including a pair of SD UHS-II card readers and a pair of HDMI ports, allowing two monitors to be hooked up at once.

The 15- and 16-inch versions of the Linedock will include a trio of USB-C ports and three USB-A ports, as their predecessor does.

The 13-inch version has a 20,000mAH battery, one HDMI port, one Mini DisplayPort and a single SD card reader. It supports up to 1TB of storage, while the larger ones can handle 2TB.

The original Linedock costs $349. Pricing for the upcoming versions has not yet been announced. Those who are interested can sign up on the Linedock website to be notified about the launch of the larger versions.
