CES 2023: OWC's New Thunderbolt 4 Dock for Mac Features Built-In Power Supply

OWC today announced the Thunderbolt Go Dock, which it claims is the world's first full-featured Thunderbolt dock with a built-in power supply. With support for Thunderbolt 4, the dock is suitable for use with the latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.

Thunderbolt docks typically have a separate power supply, while bus-powered docks that are powered by a Mac or other device they are connected to usually have fewer ports. OWC's new dock aims to solve this problem by offering both a built-in power supply and a plentiful 11 ports, including two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-C ports, three USB-A ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet port (2.5 Gbps), an SD card reader, and an audio jack. The dock connects directly to a power outlet with a cord, with no external brick.

The dock is capable of providing up to 90W of pass-through charging to a connected MacBook Pro and is compatible with a wide range of other Apple devices with Thunderbolt or USB-C ports, including the MacBook Air, iPad Pro, iPad Air, and more. The dock can also be used with Chromebooks and other Windows PCs.

Priced at $399, the Thunderbolt Go dock will begin shipping in April. You can enter your email address on OWC's website to be notified when the product is available.

$399 is just too much for such a thing (for me). I’d like powered ports for my Mac mini, but not at half the price of the Mac itself.

Why would anyone buy this over caldigit TS4 that has 3 more USB C, 2 more USB A, and the same price?

Can all these companies please stop releasing premium price docks that aren’t 10G ethernet. There’s no excuse.

My company issued laptop which is around 1 to 2 cm thick or whatever has all that stuff built in.

And that is kind of sad.

Looks like a 15 year old fanless PC. Not sure what kind of monster would want that on their desk.

Can we just have USB-c on all of these docks in 2023? There are cheap male C to female A adapters for those hanging on to legacy devices.
