Best docking stations for MacBook Pro 2022

A MacBook Pro docking station is like a power strip for your laptop. They have various ports and usually have a power source to handle high-speed data transfer and multiple display connections. The lack of different ports on the entire MacBook lineup can be slightly annoying — especially if you want to connect multiple displays. However, these are the best MacBook Pro docking stations if you connect lots of devices and peripherals and need high-speed data transfer.

Here are the best docking stations for your MacBook Pro

Connect it all with the best MacBook Pro docking stations

The best MacBook Pro docking stations enable multi-display use with charging support, and that's why they typically use Thunderbolt instead of just USB-C. Unlike the best USB-C hubs, Thunderbolt docks usually have a power supply that can charge your laptop and mobile devices while providing fast data transfer and 4K, 5K, or 8K display support.

If you want to get the most from your best MacBook, then the EZQuest USB-C Multimedia Hub Adapter 12 Ports with Power Delivery 3.0 is the one for you. The 12-port dock keeps your MacBook topped off with 100 watts of power, and the two HDMI ports allow you to connect up to two 4K displays. This dock also includes just about every kind of port you could imagine.

Belkin's Thunderbolt 3 Dock Mini may be your best bet if portability or price is a concern. This dock sports two HDMI and two USB-A ports, plus Gigabit Ethernet, all in a tiny package that costs almost half the more extensive docks. A built-in cable allows you to unplug this dock and throw it in your bag quickly for your travels, so you will never be left without the ports you need.
