Kensington Introduces SD1600P Universal USB-C Mobile 4K Docking Station with Pass-through Charging

The ideal docking station for evolving mixed-computer environments

Kensington® understands that having the right connection when and where you need it is important to today’s mobile workforce. We are pleased to announce the release of the SD1600P Universal USB-C Mobile 4K Docking Station with Pass-through Charging (K33968, SRP $99.99), which gives organizations full support for Thunderbolt 3, USB-C, and USB 3 devices from laptops using Windows, Chrome, and macOS operating systems.

With Kensington’s SD1600P USB-C Mobile 4K Docking Station with Pass-Through Charging, users can expand their desktop setup to include a full HD (VGA) or 4K (HDMI) display and connect to their favorite USB accessories using two USB 3.0 ports, and an extra USB-C port for data synchronization (up to 5Gbps). Whether in a temporary workspace or a conference room, the SD1600P keeps users productive and powered up with pass-through charging for accessories. Built on USB-C technology and Power Delivery 3.0, users can connect with confidence to PC, MacBook, or Chromebook devices knowing the SD1600P will let them expand their workspace, use their favorite accessories, and power their device at the same time.

“At Kensington, we value the trust that consumers and organizations have placed in us since we introduced the first Universal Docking Station. As technologies improve, we are committed to providing our customers with new solutions that leverage the latest enhancements to boost productivity and performance,” says Fred Wu, Kensington Global Product Manager. “The Universal USB-C Mobile 4K Docking Station protects an organization’s investment in existing technology by supporting USB 3.0, while offering complete access to the latest USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 technologies.”

Powerful Connectivity

The Docking Station connects to a single USB-C port on a laptop and gives the connected user:

  • Universal Compatibility—works with any laptop equipped with a compatible USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port and supports Windows, Mac and Chrome operating systems
  • USB-C Pass-through Power—plug a laptop's USB-C power adapter into the dock to provide pass-through power to the laptop, or power the dock and connected devices using the laptop's battery when traveling
  • Versatile Video Connections—offer output options for HDMI (4K@30Hz) or VGA Full HD (1920x1080p) to an external monitor, TV, or projector
  • 3 USB Ports—extend productivity capabilities via two USB 3.0 ports (up to 5Gbps), and an extra USB-C port for data synchronization (up to 5Gbps)
  • Built-in Charging Hub—allows the dock to power mobile accessories (5V/2.4A per the two USB 3.0 ports and 5V/3A per the USB-C male cable) when not being used as a dock, which eliminates the need to travel with additional power adapters
  • Gigabit Ethernet Port—provides a reliable 1Gbps wired networking connection
  • 8” Hideaway USB-C Cable provides flexible length (20.5cm) while conveniently storing within dock when not in use
  • Compact Design—fits into a laptop backpack or carrying case
