TS3 Plus. 15 Ports of Extreme Connectivity.
The CalDigit Thunderbolt™ Station 3 Plus (TS3 Plus) features an abundance of 15 ports for anyone looking to expand their connectivity via a single Thunderbolt™ 3 cable. Not only does the TS3 Plus feature a total of 7 USB ports. One of those ports is USB 3.1 Gen.2 which offers 10Gb/s throughput. In fact the TS3 Plus is the only dock currently available to feature USB 3.1 Gen.2 in order to take advantage of the performance of ultra fast SSD storage devices. The TS3 Plus features a mixture of USB-A and USB-C ports for added convenience.

The front SD 4.0 (UHS-II) card reader makes it incredibly easy to transfer files from cameras and any devices using SD cards. The rear Digital Optical Audio port can connect to speakers, amplifiers or AV receivers for pure digital audio.

The TS3 Plus is capable of charging Thunderbolt™ 3 Mac & PC laptops at 85W. This means that both Mac and PC users can benefit from single cable laptop charging. The 85W charging is ideal for MacBook Pro users that need to charge their laptops at the same speed as their factory charger.
