This new docking station is a lightning fast solution for any strains in your workflow, allowing ThunderboltTM 3 Mac and Windows users to expand their desktop with an extra monitor, and charge their laptop with 85W power. The device also features an extra 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 port and a 0.8m Thunderbolt 3 cable for easy connection to your laptop.

The low profile of its horizontal design allows users to add their preferred peripherals with ease, while the inclusion of a Displayport to HDMI adapter allows users to connect to a Displayport or HDMI monitor without the need for an additional purchase, which demonstrates Plugable’s commitment to simple fixes that make all the difference.

Stop Compromising Your Creativity & Productivity

This new docking station is perfect for creative professionals, such as content creators, video editors, graphic designers, and more, who are looking for a premium product that will work with them wherever they are. The ability to expand your physical workspace creates an advantage for all creatives, allowing you to work in multiple programs, multitask on projects, and view any reference material simultaneously.

Creatives and other professionals alike will take satisfaction in the simple, horizontal design, making it easy to take this dock to the office, the studio, or integrate it into your at-home office set-up with ease. The dock’s added 85W charging also ensures you will not lose momentum while working, powering your laptop so that you can power through the workday without missing a step.

Flexible Monitor Connectivity

Most people already have monitors at home when they decide to purchase a docking station. Therefore, in order to easily add a docking station to your existing desk setup, you need to find a dock that has the exact video outputs that your monitor offers. The TBT3-UD1-85W has a built-in DisplayPort video output for connecting to a single DisplayPort display. However, Plugable makes it easy for consumers by including a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter so that you can connect to an HDMI or DisplayPort monitor. This virtually eliminates the risk of mismatching the dock with a pre- purchased monitor, meaning you can make your purchase with good faith, and without having to purchase additional adapters in order to use the dock.

Standout Features

The TBT3-UD1-85W is a lighting-fast productivity solution for creatives. The extra Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C ports give creatives the high-performing connectivity solutions they need to speed up their workflows such as connecting an external hard drive or card reader. The available Thunderbolt 3 port can also be used to daisy-chain additional Thunderbolt 3 devices or connect a second external display when used with a compatible system and in conjunction with a separate purchase of a USB-C video cable or adapter.

In addition to the DP-HDMI adapter, Plugable added a 0.8m cable, an upgrade from the previous 0.5m cable included with most other Thunderbolt docks, allowing for extra foot of flexibility when connecting your Thunderbolt 3 laptop.

The TBT3-UD1-85W joins Plugable’s existing family of Thunderbolt 3 docking stations (TBT3-UDV, TBT3-UDC1, TBT3-UD1-83), all designed to meet the varying needs and price points of today’s modern user, all of which are backed by our reputation for excellent support via our U.S. based customer support team.
