Docking Connector

A docking connector is used to connect a laptop with a docking station. It includes ports for connecting a monitor, keyboard, mouse, external hard drive and other devices. It's a great solution if you are frequently transferring your laptop between home and the office.

Docking Connectors Link Computers to Docking Stations

The greatest advantage of modern laptops is their portability, which usually comes at the sacrifice of the comfortable components of desktop computers. While on the go, you won't notice most of their disadvantges, but when working long hours at the office, its more comfortable to have a larger monitor and a proper mouse. All these external components can be connected directly to the laptop, but constantly connecting and disconnectig cables is annoying and time consuming.

It is much more convenient to have everything attached permanently to a docking station; simply connect and disconnect your laptop. With the help of docking connectors and a station, the convenience of a portable laptop can be combined with the comforts of a desktop PC. Docking connectors are usually mounted directly on business-class laptops. They are located on their underside and generally include the following slots:

  • Power supply
  • USB/PS/2
  • Ethernet
  • Headphone and microphone
  • Serial or parallel port

There Are Also Docking Stations that Don't Need the Docking Connector

Up till now, there have been so-called specific docking stations that connect to laptops through the docking connector built in to the base of the device. If your laptop doesn't have such a connector already, don't despair. There are universal docking stations that connect to laptops through one single USB connector.

If you're fortunate and you have a USB-C standard USB 3.1-Gen2 connector on your laptop, go with one of the USB-C 3.1 Gen2 docking stations. They will give you the most features and comfort. Other options are so-called port replicators, but some of them, like the expansion card slot, lack some of the features of true docking stations.
