WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A USB-C HUB ANDA DOCKING STATION?

If you’re looking to enhance your computer’s ports and functionalities, USB-C hubs and docking stations are excellent options to choose from. These two devices offer similiar functions, but they differ in size, portability and price. Unfortunately, with modern laptop designs, purchasing one of these two devices is becoming a necessity since laptops are becoming thinner and lighter, offering fewer ports and smaller screens.

USB-C HUBS

USB-C Hubs serve as a bridge between your devices and peripherals. They allow users to expand their ports through one single cable, connecting multiple peripherals like monitors, keyboards, external hard drives and SD card readers. USB-C hubs are particularly useful for modern laptops with a limited number of ports.

DOCKING STATIONS

A docking station is a device that helps you expand your laptop’s capabilities in a desktop environment, providing you with a comprehensive workstation setup that goes beyond simple port expansion. With a docking station, you can connect multiple peripherals, such as keyboards, mice, monitors, and printers, allowing you to work more efficiently. However, because docking stations are designed primarily for desktop use, they are generally not portable and require access to a power outlet to charge both your laptop and external devices.
