New Anker 564 USB-C Docking Station (10-in-1) arrives
The Anker 564 USB-C Docking Station (10-in-1) has been released in the US. The gadget connects to the host device via USB-C with up to 100W power. This would allow you to charge a MacBook Pro 14-in to 57% in 30 minutes. You can connect up to three [email protected] displays via two HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.2.
You can charge other gadgets, such as your phone, via a 30W USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port with a 10Gbps transfer rate, charging an iPhone 14 Pro to 58% in half an hour. Also included are three USB-A ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 capable of 5 Gbps file transfer and 7.5W charging, and the other two provide 480 Mbps. The two remaining ports are Gigabit Ethernet and a 3.5mm AUX jack. While Anker suggests that the docking station has been designed primarily for MacBook Pro users, the device is also compatible with Dell, HP and Thinkpad laptops running on Windows 10 or 11.
The new Anker dock has a 180W power adapter and an 18-month warranty. The gadget is currently only available in dark gray, with a curved corner design similar to the MacBook. The device measures 6.69 x 3.15 x 0.96-in (~170 x 80 x 24 mm) and weighs around 0.66 lbs (300 ~g). You can now buy the Anker 564 USB-C Docking Station (10-in-1) in the US for US$299.99. It is unclear when the device will launch in other markets, such as Europe.
