As laptops become thinner, they often come with fewer ports. While you can purchase and use USB hubs, often times they’re a blocky extension to your ultra-thin laptop. The ATEN USB-C Multiport Dock with Power Pass-Through is a sleek USB-C hub which doubles as a riser for your Macbook or Windows laptop.
With an angled design, the ATEN UH3234 sits under the back of your laptop, not only adding more ports but also angling it up slightly for more ergonomic typing.
“The UH3234 USB-C Ultra-Slim Multiport Dock is an ultra-sleek, one-step total upgrade for laptops, providing all the extra expansion capabilities needed to boost and improve user productivity,” said Rojin Liao, product manager, ATEN Technology, Inc. “The versatile dock allows users to extend their MacBook or Chromebook display to an additional 4K monitor for an ultra-high definition visual experience, or mirror or extend their Windows USB-C laptop to two monitors in 1080p.”
The UH3234 houses a single USB 3.1 port with power charging support, two USB 3.1 ports, an SD/MMC card reader, MicroSD card reader, RJ-45 Ethernet port, DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack. These additional ports effectively allow you to connect up to 10 additional devices to your laptop.
You don’t have to worry about sacrificing your USB-C charging port on your laptop either as the USB-C Ultra-Slim Multiport Dock provides 60W of power deliver pass through via your laptop’s USB-C power adapter.
