Anker has launched the 563 USB-C Docking Station, a 10-in-1 device designed for M1 MacBooks. The gadget has two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort, enabling you to connect to three monitors simultaneously. A 100 W Power Delivery port allows you to fast charge a laptop via USB-C, and you can charge a phone concurrently via a 30 W USB-C port.

Anker has released the 563 USB-C Docking Station. The 10-in-1 gadget has been designed for M1 MacBooks to allow you more connection options, and the dock connects to your laptop via USB-C.

The 563 features two HDMI ports, one that supports 4K at 30 Hz and another that supports 2K at up to 60 Hz. Alongside a 2K DisplayPort, these ports enable you to connect up to three monitors simultaneously. 

A 100 W Power Delivery port allows you to fast charge a laptop via USB-C. For example, a MacBook Air would charge in 2 h 20 m. Anker suggests that you can charge your phone via the 30 W USB-C Power Delivery Port concurrently; an iPhone 13 Pro would charge fully in 1 h 40 m.

You can use the USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 and USB-A 3.1 Gen 1 ports for file transfers at speeds up to 5 Gbps. The gadget also features an AUX-in/out port and an Ethernet port that can handle speeds up to 1 Gbps. There are two USB-A 2.0 ports, though these do not support charging.

You can now buy the Anker 563 USB-C Docking Station for US$249.99. A 180 W power adapter and a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 cable are included in the box.
