QacQoc is a Chinese company that makes quality connectors, docks and adaptors. Shame about the name!
GadgetGuy agreed to review its GN30C USB-C mini dock. It has turned into an indispensable piece of kit for a MacBook Pro user – although it works equally well with Windows devices and almost any USB-C enabled device including smartphones and Chromebooks.
The key point is that it will work with all versions of USB-C including the combined Thunderbolt 3 ports – although it maxes out at 5Gb/s which is heaps to drive its
3 x USB 3.0 ports (total power available is 1.5A if powered from the Macbook)
1 x HDMI port up to 4K@30Hz
And passthrough power suitable for the latest MacBook Pro
The ports are all well-spaced, so you can easily insert or remove plugs. The Mac styled unit is 120 x 38.5 x 8.3mm and weighs 23.1g. It has four rubber feet and to prevent scratching.
Perhaps its main benefit is that one USB-C cable to the computer is all you need for data and charge freeing up valuable ports.
If you need an Ethernet port as well the GN30H has that.
