Belkin has come out with a new dock that can charge up to eight devices. The USB-C 3.1 Express Dock HD also features a 4K HDMI video output and a gigabit Ethernet connection.

The USB-C 3.1 Express delivers 60W of power. And the dock’s Power Priority feature distributes that power based on the specific requirements of each connected device.

Here’s a rundown of the port situation:

• There are two USB-C 3.1 ports to connect and charge new smartphones and laptops. 

• There are three USB-A ports to connect and charge USB-A devices. 

• There’s a single HDMI port to support 4K video output. 

• The gigabit Ethernet port allows for fast and reliable internet connectivity. 

• And two audio ports enable headphone or speaker connection.

"There is increasing consumer demand for more power, more connectivity, more convenience – and we've answered that call with this new dock," said Andrew Camba, director of product management at Belkin. "As more devices accept power delivery and consumers have a wide variety of electronics that need to connect and communicate with one another, we are making good on our Belkin promise to help people realize how the power of technology makes their lives better, easier and more fulfilling. Now people can connect, power, communicate, sync, and transfer data, using one dock and one cable."

The new USB-C 3.1 Express Dock HD is available today. Its priced at $229.99.

Belkin sells products that address connectivity, power, productivity, and protection. Its product lines include the Valet Charge Dock for Apple (News - Alert) Watch + iPhone, DuraTek Cables, RockStar multi-port solutions, QODE keyboards, and Boost↑Up charging solutions.
