The Accell Thunderbolt 4 Docking Station allows multiple peripheral connections to Mac through a single Thunderbolt 4 cable. It turns a single Thunderbolt port into two, while also offering DisplayPort, USB-A, Ethernet and more.

The professional-grade hub is available for purchase starting Monday.

With 40 Gbps bandwidth, the Thunderbolt 4-certified docking station supports high speed data transfers. And it has a trio of USB Type-A ports that support USB 3.1 Gen 2 and a fourth that supports USB 2.0.

In addition to 96W PD, the hub also provides power to the peripherals at 15W on Thunderbolt 4 ports and charging on USB Type-A ports. “To increase PD, while not sacrificing data transfer, video, and connectivity, is a testament to the hard work we’ve done to provide a best-in-class experience for our loyal customers,” said Tenny Sin, Accell‘s VP of Sales & Marketing.

Macs running Big Sur and newer can have dual external monitors at 4K video and 60Hz using combinations of the DisplayPort 1.4 and two Thunderbolt 4 ports.

Other ports in the Thunderbolt 4 Docking Station include an SD 4.0 UHS-II card reader, a 3.5mm audio combo jack and a gigabit Ethernet port.

It can be used with Macs that have either Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports. The Accell accessory is Intel-certified, and can be used with more than Apple computers. It also supports Microsoft Windows 10 (RS4 and above) and Microsoft Windows 11 Thunderbolt 4-enabled laptops (Intel Evo Platforms).

The Thunderbolt 4 Docking Station launched Monday on Accell’s site at $299… not an unusually high price for high-end Thunderbolt accessories.
