With this versatile USB-C dock, the LMP ProStand is converted into a convenient docking station with seven ports. With its patented hooks, the Attach Dock is mounted within seconds to one of the five different places – left/right under the base plate, left/right on the rear plate or centered in the front.
The two specially designed USB-C connecting cables are easily plugged into the MacBook Pro’s Thunderbolt/USB-C ports, giving the dock its unrivaled versatility and power. Place your MacBook Pro onto the stand, connect the USB-C cables and you are ready to go with all peripherals waiting and ready.
Three USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C power pass-trough port (Power Delivery) are now located within easy reach. The USB ports support data transfer up to 5 Gbps with the attached peripherals and have a power ouput of 1.5A and 2.0A (two ports sharing) respectively. So you not only exchange data back and forth with your MacBook Pro, but also can charge and sync your iPhone or iPad effectively.
Using a laptop stand most often means that a 2nd and larger monitor is in use. The Attach Dock features two of the most widely used video ports on its rear side. Through HDMI or Mini-DisplayPort, you get a resounding 4K@60 Hz resolution and refresh rate on the external display or TV.
And fast wired network connectivity is secured with the Gigabit Ethernet port, too. The pass-through power (Power Delivery) can be achieved by using the USB-C port so your MacBook Pro receives all the power from an external USB-C power supply (up to 85W).
With the LMP USB-C Attach Dock ProStand, you transform your laptop stand into a true docking station with the most widely used ports while your stand still looks as stylish and clean as ever.
Yes, through the designated USB-A ports. The maximum power output is 1.5A (7.5W) which is enough to charge an iPad Pro or any other iPad/iPhone. However, the charging will be slower due to the lower current so it may take longer to charge these devices.
It is normal that any USB-C hub or dock becomes hot when attached to the laptop. The aluminum housing is meant to dissipate the heat from the inside to the environment. There is a number of chipsets working on the inside which are producing some heat since they are constantly in a stand-by position to react quickly should any port be used. The surface temperature is well within the allowed limits and reaches about 40° C in stand-by mode, 43° C under normal use and a max. of 48° C when all ports are in full use, CPU load at 100% and PD attached. The heat does neither pose a danger to the laptop or any attached device, nor does it influence the USB-C hub’s/dock’s performance or even shorten the life-span.
Furthermore, the surface appears to be hotter than it actually is since it is touched with the very senstive fingertips. We suggest to remove the USB-C hub/dock when not needed in order not to emitt unnecessary heat to the environment and not to use any energy.
Basically, you can use only the iMac (27-inch, Late 2009) and iMac (27-inch, Mid 2010) with a Mini-DisplayPort connection with the current Mac with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports. You need a USB-C to Mini-DisplayPort adapter (e.g. 16134/16138, LMP USB-C to Mini-DisplayPort adapter) or a USB-C dock with Mini-DisplayPort port (e.g. 18641/18645/19009, LMP USB-C Travel Dock 4K 9 Port or 17113/17278/18954, LMP USB-C Compact Dock 4K 8 Port or 17116, LMP USB-C Display Dock 4K 10 Port). Then a Mini-DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort cable (8305, LMP Mini-DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort cable) must be attached to the dock and the iMac.
With iMac (Mid 2011 to Mid 2014), it is possible to use the iMac as monitor with a Thunderbolt connection only. With a newer iMac, a Target Mode with an iMac is not possible anymore.
