Modern docking stations connect to laptops through which of the following connector types?


Traditionally, docking stations would contain a proprietary port that would connect to a connector on the bottom or back of a laptop. The docking stations would be proprietary, which means they would only operate with certain pieces of equipment. Modern docking stations link to fast USB-C or Thunderbolt ports, as well as USB-A connectors on occasion. They frequently supply their own power and can transform a laptop into a desktop by plugging in a single cable that connects your laptop to numerous monitors, gigabit Ethernet, audio, or nearly any other port type. A docking station can also refer to a vertically plugged-in charging cradle for a smartphone or tablet that has additional functions such as built-in speakers for music playback or a clock.
