Plugable Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 Docking Station (model TBT4-UDX1)
Plugable launched a new docking station based on Thunderbolt 4 Tuesday, delivering new connectivity options for laptops with Thunderbolt ports. The Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 Docking Station (model number TBT4-UDX1) offers 10 ports to allow you to connect a variety of peripherals, including support for up to dual 4K displays at 60Hz.
Suitable for professional environments, the docking station features a durable metal and plastic chassis and includes a power button for easily turning off connected devices without unplugging cables, Plugable noted.
Dock port selection:
- 4 USB-A ports with 10Gbps speeds
- 2.5Gbps Ethernet
- 2 Thunderbolt 4 downstream ports
- SD card reader
- Headphone jack
Note that the dock supports 100W power delivery to your laptop. And one of the USB-A ports also supports charging for a smartphone or other accessories.
Of course, you’ll need a computer with a Thunderbolt 4 or USB4 port, common recent among premium laptops. Since it also works with USB4, AMD-powered laptops like Lenovo’s ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 can benefit from the connectivity options, Plugable said.
The Plugable Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 Docking Station (TBT4-UDX1) costs $289.95, though you can use an Amazon discount coupon to save $15.
