C2G’s USB-C & Thunderbolt 3 docking station kits now available

C2G has made available its new USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 docking station kits, making the new hybrid working trend easier to set up.

Designed to set up workstations in the home or office quickly, the docking stations take the guesswork out of connectivity by providing a single connection point to give end-users more screen space and access to more devices, transforming laptops into full desktops, while saving time by bundling the necessary cables.

“Anyone who transitioned to working from home during the pandemic knows that configuring a laptop setup can be an extremely frustrating experience, which is only made worse when you realise you don’t have the cables you need,” said Robb Mays, associate product marketing manager, C2G, a Legrand brand.

“Our docking station kits address this headache by making the process as simple as possible, bundling the necessary cables and offering single-port solutions for connecting displays and storage devices; powering smartphones and laptops; delivering internet connectivity; and much more. It couldn’t be easier.”

Rather than worrying about lack of ports in the laptop, the new C2G docking station kits allows users to plug the keyboard, mouse, monitors, storage devices, and more permanently into the docking station, which connects to the laptop via a single USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 cable.

Four docking station kits are available for any laptop on the market and setups of any complexity.
