Note this is not the Gen 1 with 60W power pass-through
Most modern PCs and Macs have USB-C. It is a step up from USB-A and carries power, data and video. If you need to know what USB-C, Thunderbolt and PD charging is (and you will) read our Dummies Guide here.
So, to add
one external monitor or extra USB-A ports, you can get away with a lower cost self-powered
dongle (that means the computer provides the downstream power).
But to do
much more, you need a dock. This mini-dock uses 8W. Power Pass through means just
that – it sends the balance (92W) power upstream to the PC.
