Like a lot of people on the go, I’m constantly trying to balance convenience and functionality with the tech I carry. So now, if something is going to make the list it must be versatile. Recently the Sandisk extreme Pro V2 made the list and today another contender has emerged: The ATEN USB-C Travel Dock with power pass-through.

The device (model UH3238) is setup with a host of connectivity options:

  • Audio Output
  • 2 x USB-A and USB-C (Thunderbolt 3)
  • 4K HDMI output

It’s remarkably small for what it offering users and — we’re told — will land in Australia for $89.90 at the usual retailers. From a connectivity perspective, if it’s USB-C it’s probably going to work with the site listing Android, iPad, Windows and Mac as compatible operating systems. Whether it’s the daily commute and workflows, or to minimise your travelling tech kit it does look good. We’ll be keen to take a closer look when units are available.

How would a pocket-sized dock like this benefit you daily?
