The bottom line is that 54% of job hunters choose companies that offer more flexibility, like hybrid and remote work models, among other employee benefits. 

That said, remote workers need a home office setup that promotes mobility, productivity, wellness and connectivity. A mobile docking station is an ideal solution to enable this.

Mobile docking stations allow remote and hybrid workers to work like a pro from anywhere. Let’s review the top Kensington mobile docking solutions. But first, take a moment to check out the benefits of carrying a mobile docking station.

Benefits of Carrying a Mobile Docking Station

Mobile docking stations are compact and tuck away easily in any laptop bag — even if you carry your computer in an eco-friendly laptop sleeve. Since these Kensington mobile docking stations feature pass-through power delivery, you don’t have to carry your bulky power adapter, instead using a compact 100W USB-C GaN Power Adapter you can fully charge your laptop while keeping you connected. Now, there is no need to travel with a heavy power adapter when on the go.

These docking stations provide video and data transfer, making them ideal for mobile work and business travel. They can be your go-to dock regardless of where you work — even if you only use your portable dock at home. It’s an excellent gadget for:

  • Graphic designers
  • Video editors
  • Sales professionals
  • Business presenters 
  • Hybrid workers 

Basically, mobile docking stations are perfect for anyone who works between the office and home. It turns your laptop into a workstation anywhere you work.

Finding a Solution for Every Device

When you are on the go, a mobile docking station with a 100W power pass-through gives you the flexibility to fully charge your laptop instead of using a bulky DC power adapter. Kensington offers single and dual video mobile docks that support high resolutions and refresh rates. Kensington has a variety of video display output options across their mobile docking stations, including:

  • Legacy VGA port
  • HDMI port
  • Display Port

The extra USB ports are handy for connecting a mouse, flash drives, or hard drives. An ethernet port gives you a wired connection to the Internet, and the SD card port allows you to transfer data easily from cameras and other devices. Additional connectivity options mean enhanced productivity.

For example, graphic designers need USB ports to transfer data. At the same time, they need to have dual displays to view artworks. A portable mobile docking station in their backpack ensures they have enough ports and displays to get their work done.

Business professionals who make presentations in conference rooms or at various locations should carry a solution that supports a legacy VGA port + an HDMI port to ensure their laptop is compatible with any monitor or display, from legacy to newer models.
