This one universal cable connection can be used for so many purposes and with so many different devices. Bonelk’s unique range of high-quality USB-C Desktop Hubs turn a single USB-C port into a muti-functional workspace solution. Transfer data, charge & sync multiple devices, charge via 100W pass-through power delivery and connect multiple monitors.
Every machine and setup configuration is different so please check with your device manufacture for its USB-C port compatibility settings. If your monitor shows an image when connected directly to the USB-C port of your laptop via a direct cable, the USB-C port of your laptop supports DisplayPort Alt Mode or Thunderbolt 3, and it's suitable to use with a docking station.
Windows laptops have symbols that show you what you can do with a particular port. Please refer to the below information on the symbol meanings:
Lightning bolt (Thunderbolt™ 3) - charge and to transfer a video signal. You can connect a monitor. This port supports DisplayPort alt mode.
D (DisplayPort) - transfer a video signal. You can connect a monitor. This port supports DisplayPort alt mode.
Battery symbol - you can use this port to charge your laptop. This port doesn't support DisplayPort alt mode.
MacBook models don't have a logo or symbol next do the USB-C port. Go to the Apple logo in the top left corner of your MacBook and check ‘About this Mac’ to find your model. Use the scheme down below to check what the type of USB-C port on your MacBook model can do.
To connect two monitors at the same time through a single USB-C port your laptop must support MST (Multi-Stream Transport). When you connect two monitors to a dock and the laptop automatically detects them, that means it can support MST.
‘Alt mode’ allows a device with a USB-C port to output pictures to any HDMI display using the necessary cable.
Connecting a USB-C display using a VGA may have some limitations as it incorporated older technology.
While we do our best to gn and manufacture products that have compatibility across all devices, we cannot guarantee that all devices have the functionality and support the described features.
