iVANKY, a brand that has become well known for its audio and video accessories over the past several years, recently updated its MacBook Docking Station with USB-C, enhanced 4K connectivity, and more. The 12-in-2 USB hub comes in at a far lower price than most at $109 (Reg $150) after our exclusive deal. The dual USB-C dock provide a wealth of I/O possibilities including several legacy USB-A jacks, and more. Hit the jump for all of the details and a closer look.
iVANKY 12-in-2 MacBook Docking Station
The iVANKY 12-in-2 MacBook Docking Station started life on Kickstarter last year before raising five times its funding goal. Fast forward through 2020 to now, and the dock has been updated specifically for Mac users with notable power pass through capabilities, four of the aforementioned USB-A ports, ethernet, and a headphone jack, and much more.
All-in-all, you’re looking at a 12 port dock that connects to two of the USB-C jacks on your machine. Here’s a break down of the I/O here:
- 2x HDMI
- 2x USB-C 3.0 (1 PD at 18W, 1 at 7.5W)
- 4x USB 3.0 (4.5W output)
- 1x SD card slot
- 1x microSD card slot
- 1x Gigabit Ethernet (1000/100/10 Mbps)
- 1x 3.5mm audio
But the real selling point for many will be the video and display possibilities. Much like a more pricey Thunderbolt model, the iVANKY MacBook Docking Station brings extended desktop, video mirroring, and closed-display modes. Connecting to your Mac with a perfectly aligned double USB-C plug, it provides a pair of HDMI ports that support 4K at 60Hz with HDR (4K @ 30Hz, and 1080p @ 60Hz – dual 4K @ 60Hz limited to 2017 and later 15/16-inch MacBook Pro models)
