The USB-C version of the Tethered Dock is getting closer and closer to shipping and a lot of people are curious about the capabilities!


The docking station will connect to any USB-C computer and provides the following capabilities:


1 x TRRS audio jack

1 x SDCard slot with read/write speeds up to 320 MB/s (UHS-III)

1 x Gigabit Ethernet port

1 x mini DisplayPort 1.2 Dual Mode

1 x USB-C output

1 x USB-C input

3 x USB-A


The Tethered Dock will also fully power and charge your MacBook (up to 85W upstream) and includes its own power supply.


All of the USB ports are 3.1 (Gen 1) and the docking station is able to output to a single display at up to 4K 30Hz resolution. If you wish to connect a display that does not use a mini DisplayPort connection, you'll need an adapter. These are available at almost all electronics retailers and we carry the most common types on our own website in the Accessories section.


please note: The USB-C port on the rear of the dock is for data and power only and will not transmit video.
