A: Yes, the dock works with computing devices (example: laptops, 2-in-1s, etc.) that have at least one available USB-C port. The USB-C port must support 5V/3A (15W) of power.
A: For USB-C ports that support Power Delivery, yes. Please check the specs of your laptop or contact us and we can help you identify if your USB-C port supports Power Delivery
A: Windows® 10+ / macOS 11+ / iPadOS 13+ / Samsung DeX® (for the best compatibility, please make sure that your host USB-C port supports 5V/3A of power.) For Samsung DeX®, it is recommended to use the dock with a USB-C power supply unit.
A: No, this dock is plug and play, no software is required.
A: Yes, the dock is compatible with a laptop that has a Thunderbolt 3 or a Thunderbolt 4 port. However, it will not deliver the maximum bandwidth of Thunderbolt technology (40Gbps), but rather deliver what the dock supports (10Gbps).
A: Unfortunately, if your USB-C port doesn’t support Alt Mode, then you won’t receive video output. If this is the case, one of our USB-A or Hybrid USB-A/USB-C docks would work better for you.
