Make 2022 your most productive year to date. In this article, we will help you learn what a docking station is and how it can improve both your productivity and help you start the New Year like a professional.
Convert your laptop into a desktop workstation by connecting it to a USB-C docking station. A docking station is a small device that sits on your desk and allows you to connect to multiple monitors, a keyboard and mouse, and more. Not all docking stations are created equal, but all your current cables can connect to the dock, which will help keep your workspace neat and tidy. Targus universal laptop docking stations are compatible with just about any laptop brand or operating system, and we make it easy to get set up and started right out of the box.
When you see more, you can do more. Multi-tasking on your laptop becomes a breeze when you can compare documents or spreadsheets side by side on two monitors while answering emails and team chats on your laptop screen.
We have different USB-C docking stations that accommodate different monitor displays, including ones that use DisplayPort, HDMI, or VGA connections.
A popular choice for UHD users is our USB-C Multi-Function DisplayPort Alt. Mode Triple Video Docking Station with 85W Power. This docking station allows for up to three HDMI displays, or two via DisplayPort. This dock is often selected by Mac users for its Thunderbolt (USB-C) compatibility among other features.
When your laptop is connected to a USB-C docking station with power, it not only connects that laptop to monitors and accessories, but it also charges your laptop’s battery at the same time. This is called power pass-thru technology. If you need to get up and take your laptop to a conference room in your office building or another room in your house, simply disconnect the USB-C connection and walk-away with a ready to use laptop.
You can also charge your smaller devices as you work at your desk. Our best-selling USB-C Universal DV4K Docking Station with 100W Power comes equipped with a fast-charging USB-A port. Plug in your phone or smartwatch via USB-A, and you can quickly power up as you catch-up on your morning emails or tackle a conference call.
Do you need to work on a project from another office, or even a hotel room? We offer portable USB-C docking station options that are smaller than a smartphone.
For example, the USB-C DP Alt Mode Single Video 4K HDMI/VGA Docking Station with 100W PD Pass-Thru allows you to connect your laptop to a single display like a regional office computer monitor, a conference room projector, or a hotel television. Its compact size makes it easy to slip into your laptop backpack or briefcase.
You’ll be the most prepared person in the room by keeping one of these with you before your next big presentation. Pro-tip: try slipping your laptop and dock into one of our stylish, top-selling laptop sleeves.
