Know your gear

The Plugable UD-CA1A USB-C Docking Station provides an additional display output (via DisplayPort Alternate Mode), up to 60 Watts of Power Delivery (PD) to charge your host computer via USB-C (host computer must support PD over USB-C), gigabit Ethernet, audio, and expanded USB device connectivity. All through a single USB-C cable.

Performance The UD-CA1A docking station utilizes Alternate Mode display technology which uses a direct "pipeline" to the graphics processor in your system, and your connected monitor will function and perform as a natively attached display. The Alternate Mode video (native DisplayPort signal) gets converted to HDMI 1.4 to accommodate widely available HDMI monitors.

Compatible Systems Plug and play installation on systems like the 2018 MacBook Air, 2016/2017/2018 MacBook Pros, Chromebooks, Microsoft Surface Book 2, Microsoft Surface Go, HP Spectre x360 13", and Dell XPS (9350, 9550, 9360, 9560, 9370, 9380), Lenovo X1 Carbon X1 G5.

Incompatible Systems No current Android phones or tablets with USB-C support Alternate Mode video output. ASMedia USB 3.1 controllers do not support Alternate Mode video at this time.

Power and Charging The UD-CA1A's power supply can charge hosts with up to 60 Watts of power via the USB Power Delivery standard. As mentioned above, some devices which support video output over USB-C will not charge via USB-C. For these systems, the charger from your system manufacturer will be required.

In the Box UD-CA1A docking station with stand, 1m long USB-C cable, 80W (20V, 4A) power supply with US power plug, and quick start guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept Disconnecting I had some trouble figuring out why this plugable USB-C docking station with pd kept disconnecting. I liked how small this docking station is and that everything I needed to plug in would all be in one confined space. But it just wouldn’t stay connected. It kept failing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's vertical! This vertical Plugable USB-C Dock has so many slots for USB-C. It's sturdy and vertical. I can't help but emphasize these of a doc that is vertical so that it's not placed in space on your desk. Desk space is limited and this l solves problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hybrid Work Solution I used the Plugable USB-C docking station to organize my desk and setup my laptop for hybrid work. I like that I can connect my monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cables to the docking station and only connect the USB-C cable to my laptop. This allows me to be more flexible and move my computer when working from home. I would recommend this to someone that's looking for a convenient way to connect their laptop without having to disconnect and reconnect all of the peripherals when working in different locations.

It saves the headache of having wires running everywhere and making my desk cluttered. All my USB cords are in one area. It works exceptionally for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my laptop This docking station will make anybody's life a lot easier if they use a laptop. I keep all of my devices (mouse, keyboard, speakers, microphone, and monitor) plugged into it. When I need to travel for work I can simply unplug my computer when I leave and plug it back in when I get back. Love that it has a stand and plenty of USB ports. The one thing that I wish it had is two HDMI ports. I like using two monitors for work but I can still use a monitor and the screen on the laptop so it's not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Reliable Docking Station with Some Limitations I recently got the Plugable USB-C Docking Station with PD in black to use with my MacBook and Windows laptop, and here's what I found: Pros: Convenient Connectivity: This docking station offers a variety of ports, including USB-C, USB-A, HDMI, Ethernet, and audio. It makes connecting all your peripherals a breeze. Power Delivery (PD): The PD feature is a lifesaver. It charges my MacBook and other USB-C devices quickly and efficiently. No more carrying around multiple chargers! Compatibility: It works well with my MacBook and Windows laptop, as advertised. I appreciate the clear compatibility information provided by Plugable on their website. Sleek Design: The black color and compact design of the docking station make it a stylish addition to my desk setup. Cons: Not for DisplayPort Monitors: One major drawback is the lack of support for DisplayPort monitors. If you rely on these, you'll need to look elsewhere for a compatible docking station. Not for Older USB Systems: As stated in the product description, it's not compatible with older USB 3.0 and 2.0 systems. If you have legacy devices, you may need a separate hub. USB-C Limitations: The limitations of USB-C, such as not all ports supporting Power Delivery or Alt Mode, are worth noting. It would be better if the station could provide a bit more versatility in this regard. In summary, the Plugable USB-C Docking Station with PD is a reliable solution for modern laptops that support USB 3.1 Type-C. It offers seamless connectivity and fast charging, making it a valuable addition to your workspace. However, the lack of support for DisplayPort monitors and older USB systems may limit its appeal for some users. Despite these limitations, it's a solid choice if it meets your specific requirements.

In short, the Plugable Docking Station is an excellent choice for anyone looking to boost their laptop's connectivity and efficiency.
