Plugable updates triple display docking station with improved charging

Plugable, mostly known for its docking stations and accessories, has announced the latest addition to its lineup – the USB-C Triple Display Docking Station (UD-ULTCDL). Not to be confused with the 4K Triple Display Docking Station we reviewed earlier this year, this model has been upgraded with new display outputs and improved charging capabilities.

In terms of display support, the Plugable has switched to HDMI ports for all three outputs, replacing the old DVI port that was still on the old model, so you should get much better compatibility with modern monitors. Each of the three HDMI ports can output 1080p and 60Hz video, and they all work simultaneously. One of the ports uses USB-C Alt Mode, and the other two uses DisplayLink, which means you can actually use three external monitors, even on M1 and M2-based Macs like the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Of course, it supports Windows and other operating systems as well.

This new model also comes with power delivery improvements, and can now charge your laptop up to 100W (the actual certification is 96W), so it should support the vast majority of laptops. The previous model was only able to deliver 60W of power, so it might not be enough for more power-hungry laptops. On top of charging your laptop, the new model can also charge your phone with another USB Type-C port on the front, which features up to 20W power delivery. These improvements are all very similar to what was done with the Plugable Triple 4K Display Docking Station earlier this year, so the two are on par in this regard.

Aside from this, the new pluggable Triple Display Docking Station comes with four USB Type-A ports for peripherals, all located in the back, along with Gigabit Ethernet for wired Internet access, if you prefer.
