40Gbps Cables

Connect your notebook to your docking with just one cable and you get access to all important interfaces, for devices with higher power requirements you can also charge your notebook / Ultrabook with up to 100 watts (depending on the hardware used) Info: not all devices with USB Type-C® interface support the 40Gbps, please contact your device manufacturer.


There are more options than ever to connect computers to monitors and other devices. It can be hard to tell the difference between hubs and docking stations. Many have overlapping functionality and they often look alike. Both are valuable tools for today’s technology, but they each have a unique use.


Laptop and 2-in-1 computers have been streamlined down to Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connectivity ports. It keeps the device’s form factor slim, light-weight, and easy to travel with, but you’re often left unable to connect peripherals to your computers. With today’s modern technology, you should be able to connect all your devices, charge your phones, and use an external monitor.


What is a Hub?

Hubs expand the number of ports on a device. Whether it’s USB-A or USB-C, these hubs work as splitters to let you plug more devices into a given port. These hubs typically pull power from the laptop, and their lightweight and small size make them easy to carry around.


What is a Docking Station?

Docking stations expand the functionality of a portable device, transforming it into a desktop replacement. A docking station connects via Thunderbolt 3, USB-C or USB-A and provides workstation power for your entire setup.


Most docks offer a wide variety of HDMI - VGA- DVI - DP - PD - SD - TF - RJ45 - 3.5mm Audio Outputs. USB-A - USB-C ports with fast charging each independently powered by the dock itself, instead of your laptop. Unlike most hubs, docking stations are plugged into the wall, so they can provide power to both your laptop (up to 85W depending on model) and peripheral devices.


Video output on docking stations is standard, often supporting one or more monitors. The video ports supported from one docking station to the next can vary though between DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, or VGA with resolutions up to triple 4K @ 60Hz. Docks also support Gigabit Ethernet, a variety of audio connections, SD card readers, and more.

Hubs vs. Docks:

The hubs vs. docking stations debate isn’t a debate at all as both are useful. However, what you need varies based on what you are trying to achieve.


Docking stations turn a laptop into a desktop powerhouse, providing full connectivity to the office or smart home. This gives power to use any screen in the building as a 4K extended monitor while hardwiring a reliable internet connection, printer, and more. A dock is like adding a second engine to a computer.


There are many USB devices to connect these days, from smart, app-based power banks to external hard drives, SD card readers, smart home hubs, printers (2D and 3D), tablets, smartphones, and everything in between. There simply aren’t enough ports on today’s computers to handle them all, and hubs work like power strips for a computer, expanding the number of devices which can be connected.
