OWC makes some of the nicest looking, aluminum bodies docks on the market. They make docks for both PCs, Macs, and tablets that expand the capabilities of your machine. That’s especially needed these days since many computers now only have a couple USB-C ports and a dock is the perfect way to add more ports and features. Of course when you’re traveling, a full sized dock isn’t practical which is why OWC makes the USB-C Travel Dock.
The OWC USB-C Travel Dock is a dock that adds an additional five ports to your device. What you get are two USB-A 3.1 ports, one HDMI port, a SD card reader, and one USB-C power pass through port. Built into the dock is a USB-C cable that can be tucked away underneath the dock when not in use.
To use the dock, you basically just plug the USB-C cable into your device, whatever you’re using. It should be enough to power the dock where you’ll be able to use all the available ports. If not, what you can do is power the dock with an auxiliary power source and hook that directly up to the USB-C port on the dock. It’ll pass through up to 100W of power.
Other than that, it’s basically just a simple dock that’s easy to stow away in your equipment bag. It seems to be quite durable, made with some sturdy plastic with an aluminum shell wrapped around it. It also has rubber feet on the bottom that keep it planted when in use. It’s a well made dock and doesn’t look too bad either. It’s an attractive little piece that will match most hardware you’ll use this on.
That’s basically it. The OWC USB-C Travel Dock is nothing fancy, but it does what it says it does. It’s a compact little package that will compliment any desk setup and add ports and features to any device that needs them. You can purchase here on Amazon.
