The company’s latest addition in its Thunderbolt 3 docking station lineup offers a compelling 100W of power delivery, while also incorporating two USB-C ports for easy data transfer.
Today, top-rated computer accessory company Plugable announces the next addition to its line of Thunderbolt 3 docking stations, the TBT3-UDC3 – an upgrade to the popular TBT3-UDC1 docking station. The TBT3-UDC3 offers higher wattage than the TBT3-UDC1 at 100W (96W certified) and upgraded, flexible video connectivity with 1x HDMI and 1x DisplayPort, while also including a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter for users who want to connect two HDMI monitors. The new dock has the ability to extend dual 4K 60Hz displays, connect two USB-C peripherals and three USB-A peripherals, and is compatible with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 laptops – all while charging laptops at the highest certified wattage on the market. This robust feature set ensures every aspect of a user’s workflow is covered – compatibility, power, and productivity – packed in for a price that won’t break the bank. The Plugable TBT3-UDC3 is now available on Amazon, Newegg, and Walmart for $219 MSRP, with a $20 off launch coupon.
Plugable is known for taking deliberate steps to answer specific consumer asks – this time, with consumers looking for more USB-C connectivity. The new dock includes two USB-C ports that allow users to transfer necessary data such as high res photos and 4K video at up to 10Gbps speeds – further demonstrating Plugable’s dedication to continuing to improve and implement direct responses to customer calls-to-action.
Fuel creativity without sacrificing power and connectivity
The TBT3-UDC3 is one of the few docks on the market that can charge up to 100W Power Delivery (96W Certified) and is Plugable’s second docking station with this feature. With this capacity, users can charge their laptops at noticeably faster speeds without a second thought and without the risk of losing momentum mid-workflow due to loss of power. This charging rate makes Plugable’s Thunderbolt dock the ideal option for Mac and Windows users alike looking to maximize their charging speeds, and add more flexibility and connectivity into their workflow. With Apple now releasing notebooks with 96W chargers, such as the new 16” MacBook Pro, the TBT3-UDC3 is one of only a handful of options that can charge a powerhouse like the 16” MacBook Pro in only 110 minutes.
Coupled with the dock’s ability to expand workspaces by adding up to two 4K 60Hz displays (or one 4K 60Hz display on an M1-powered Mac) makes this dock ideal for creative professionals, such as content creators, photographers, and more, who need to extend their workspace to work in multiple programs, multitask on projects, and view any reference material while working.
Increased Bandwidth for Crystal Clear Connections and Wide Compatibility
The TBT3-UDC3 provides a full 40Gbps bandwidth so users can extend dual 4K 60Hz displays when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 laptop. This feature provides a high-quality viewing experience, perfect for creatives who need to see detail down to the smallest pixel and casual users who want a fully immersive entertainment experience. Using the Intel Titan Ridge chipset, the laptop dock provides more comprehensive compatibility options with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 hosts, to the next generation of Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 systems allowing many users to connect single or dual 4K 60 displays with no drivers required.
All Plugable products are backed by a 2-year limited parts and labor warranty as well as US-based email customer service support.
