ATEN USB-C Travel Dock UH3238 with 100W power pass-through (review) – GadgetGuy

ATEN USB-C Travel Dock UH3238 is a nifty little USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 dock for Mac, PC, iPad (USB-C) and Android. It provides HDMI, USB-A, USB-C 3.1 and 3.5mm combo headset outputs.

It is one of those docks that plugs directly (as in the body plugs in) to the USB-C port. For most, that is a deal-breaker because it can cover other ports or microphone and speaker, so before you buy, make sure it suits your smartphone or computing device. Or buy a 1m female-to-male USB-C  3.1 extension cable – about $10 from eBay – problem solved.
