Plugable’s USB-C Mini Dock with HDMI, USB 3.0 and Pass-Through Charging

As more systems are released with only Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C ports, we are left asking ourselves, “how do we connect all of our peripherals to our laptops if we only have USB-C ports?!” Existing solutions have either been expensive or had spotty compatibility.

Plugable’s newest product is designed to solve this vexing problem: our new Plugable USB-C Mini Dock, also known as the USBC-MD101. The Plugable USB-C Mini Dock enables you to connect an external HDMI display, one USB 3.0 peripheral and external USB-C power adapter to charge a compatible system via a single device. Popular systems that are compatible with our Mini Dock include the 2015/2016 MacBook, the 2016/2017 MacBook Pro lineup, the HP Spectre x360, Lenovo Yoga 720, and many other systems that support USB-C DisplayPort Alternate Mode via a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port.

Our USBC-MD101 Mini Dock is equipped with an HDMI 1.4 video output and can support resolutions on an external monitor up to 3840×2160 at 30Hz refresh rate (4K) or 60Hz or better for 2560×1440 and lower modes (please note: the monitor and host system must support this resolution as well). As traditional USB Type-A ports are becoming increasingly less common, our Multiport Adapter provides a USB 3.0 Type-A port in order to connect both USB 3.0 and 2.0 peripherals.

Finally, for host systems which support charging over USB-C via the USB-IF Power Delivery specification, our Mini Dock can provide a conduit to power and charge a laptop’s battery (5-20V at 3A) when connected with a compatible USB-C power adapter that is compatible with the host system. Measuring at mere 6 inches in length and weighing less than a pound, the size of our adapter offers convenient portability in order to take your workstation on the go!

      At this time we have not test the Samsung S8 or Note 8 with this mini dock. However, with the recent release of Android 8.0 for the S8, we plan to revisit it for testing with our products.

    I have a new car and the auxiliary port is USB but the item I want to plug in is a regular male type plug. Would this work for me. I bought the small size plug but nothing happens

      Hi Andrew, thanks for asking! Unfortunately, our USBC-MD101 adapter would be unable to support this connection. This adapter is only meant to connect to a USB-C port on a computer that supports power delivery and video output.

      Thanks for asking! Unfortunately our USBC-MD101 Mini Dock is not compatible with the Nintendo Switch.
