OWC USB-C Dock for MacBook Now Shipping

OWC is now shipping (within a week or so) the $159 OWC USB-C Dock, a terrific way to provide the needed ports for an Apple MacBook (the MacBook has no Thunderbolt port and only one USB-C port). New orders are likely to take longer, since the first run is sold out.

While the OWC USB-C Dock requires wall power, it can power the MacBook itself (so the MacBook power brick is not needed), as well as items attached to the Dock.

Other Macs have Thunderbolt, for those Macs get the excellent OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock.

OWC USB-C Dock for Apple MacBook

Available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold, the OWC USB-C Dock provides eleven ports and enables essential everyday peripheral connectivity. Users will be able to charge devices, connect a display, add external storage, import photos from an SD card, utilize wired Gigabit Ethernet connections, connect their favorite audio accessories, and even power their MacBook, all through a single USB Type-C cable.

The OWC USB-C Dock includes eleven ports for easy connectivity:

  • Five fully-powered USB 3.1 Generation 1 ports, including: two high-power USB Type-A ports for fast mobile device charging, two USB Type-A ports, and one USB Type-C port.
  • One full-speed Gigabit Ethernet port adds high-speed wired networking support for use when speed and stability are essential.
  • One HDMI port provides connectivity for an external display, including support up to 4K resolution.
  • One Secure Digital (SD) card reader to easily transfer photos, video or other content from an SD card.
  • Two audio ports, including audio in and audio out.
  • One USB-C port for connecting to your MacBook or other USB-C-enabled host machine.

Power for your MacBook. And more.

Included with every OWC USB-C Dock is an 80 watt power adapter. This is in contrast to other dock solutions relying on the power adapter that ships with the Apple MacBook, resulting in insufficient and unreliable power for many bus-powered USB peripherals. The included 80 watt adapter shipping with the OWC USB-C Dock is capable of powering not only the new MacBook but also all of the USB peripherals users will directly attach. As an added benefit, users can keep the original Apple MacBook 29 watt power supply in their bag for when they are on the go.

“...puts all other docks to shame.”

The OWC USB-C Dock has been developed by the same design team that developed the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock, which has been critically acclaimed by customers and product reviewers. Selected as a Finalist in the 2015 Stevie Awards, a premier business award program, the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock has a customer rating of 4.9/5.0. Derek Kessler, Managing Editor of Mobile Nations, stated “OWC’s Thunderbolt 2 Dock puts all other docks to shame.”

“The OWC USB-C Dock is at the cutting edge of technology and design, giving our customers the absolute most from their new MacBook with eleven high-performance ports and an impressive 80 watts of power,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, OWC. “USB 3.1 is an exciting new standard of connectivity, and I am very excited that OWC continues to deliver innovative solutions at the forefront of possibility, just like the all-new OWC USB-C Dock.”
