Why do you need a docking station?
Cadyce has been coming up with innovative gadgets that make your life easier on a day to day basis, just as their motto claims. For people who travel often, it is more practical to carry a laptop that is smaller and lighter. With the lightness and compactness of a small notebook laptop comes the problem of accessibility – to reduce space on the hardware, designers of technology often have to compromise on the types of inputs and outputs devices have.
While it is true that you can always rely on Bluetooth and wireless connections for connectivity, one cannot deny the universality of specifications like USB and HDMI, especially since they are still used by many people. It is embarrassing if you go for a corporate meeting or an important presentation and find that you cannot even connect HDMI to your laptop.
ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI: The Revolutionary Docking Station
All of your connectivity issues are solved with the Cadyce ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station. This innovative device allows you to connect your laptop to a variety of peripherals. ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Dock has the following inputs for charging and supporting the host:
- ThunderboltTM 3×2 with one supporting host uplink
- PD charging 100W
- PD charging 15W (5V @ 3A)
But the stunning feature of the CA-T3HDD is the numerous outputs it supports, showing the range and quality of tech development in this device:
- HDMI 2.0 female
- Two USB 3.0 female
- Three USB 3.1 Gen2 female
- Gigabit Ethernet port
- 5 mm Audio Jack (Microphone/Headphone)
- Storage Data/ Micro SD slot that can support up to a whopping 2TB
All of these ports are easily accessible to you the moment you connect the CA-T3HDD to your laptop.
The Stunning Quality of Resolution and Speed
What is often compromised in cheaper docking devices of lower quality is the resolution of video and the speed of data transfer through the peripherals. The ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station is revolutionary when it comes to these features offering the following mind-blowing specifications:
- Video resolution
If you wish to connect your laptop or tablet to a device equipped with HDMI input, you no longer have to worry about the resolution of the original video resolution, not translating into the picture produced. If you connect a monitor or display device through the ThunderboltTM 3 dock’s HDMI 2.0 port, you will experience a stunning 8k resolution, with absolutely no lag or glitches. The speed of HDMI transmission is an impressive 60Hz. With the ThunderboltTM 3 dock’s HDMI input, you can achieve a single resolution of 5k, or the dual resolution of 4k, both at an uncompromising rate of 60Hz. This availability of a dual-resolution provides options that most docking stations may not provide – you never know what HDMI cable you may come across.
- The Transfer Speed
Docking stations also tend to be slow when it comes to data transmission. The ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station has multiple USB ports, but rest assured that even if you use multiple input peripherals simultaneously, the CA-T3HDD will not slow down. The USB 3.0 ports provide a speed of 5GBps, while the USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports can handle a whopping 10GBps – rest assured that the docking station will not hinder your performance at all. The ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station can handle up to 40Gbps alone.
- Charging and Temperature Specifications
The ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station is self-powered – when the power is on, there is a white LED indicator that will let you know if it is on. It can handle an AC input of 100-240V. You need not worry about the device heating up because it can handle an operating temperature of 0 to 40 degrees Celsius and a storage temperature of a freezing -20 Celsius to a whopping seventy degrees Celsius.
- Compact and Efficient
The product is quite small, which means it will be easy to carry it around in your bag or your jacket pocket. The compactness is impressive for a device that does so much with just a single cable for power delivery. The ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station can function with a daisy chain of almost six devices with ease, with surprising efficiency for such a tiny gadget. The product is sculpted ergonomically, with tough and durable aluminum. The design of the product is advanced in subtle ways – for example, the cables have an angle of ninety degrees, which assures flush inserts, again increasing your overall efficiency.
The ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station works with a USB-C reversible connector. You can use it on the go with a hot-swappable Plug and Play. It is equally compatible with both leading operating systems, Mac OS and Windows.
Some people feel that it is more economically feasible to use individual cables for each peripheral, cables which have been added as accessories with new purchases. But this is impractical in many ways. Firstly, this approach does not allow us to connect multiple inputs at the same time – daisy-chaining will be really difficult, and connecting and disconnecting multiple times will be a lot of hassle. Secondly, so many cables can be difficult to maintain, especially since they tend to wear out and break. If you travel a lot, the wear and tear that comes from fast storage can strain and tear the wires. Purchasing a durable and easily transportable device like the ThunderboltTM 3 HDMI Docking Station is a good investment – you pay upfront for a device that will stay with you for a long time and provide you with efficiency.
