Belkin Debuts New Compact ‘Dual Power’ Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core

Belkin today introduced the Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core, a “dual power” dock option that supports passthrough power from a laptop to connected devices, so a separate power cable is not required.


Belkin says the Dock Core is aimed at those who are looking for fast transfer rates and a one-cable solution for connecting laptops to peripherals.


Designed for both Mac and Windows machines, Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core offers a compact form factor ideal for desktop use along with 40Gb/s transfer rates, 60W power upstream charging, and support for one 8K monitor or two 4K monitors at 60Hz.

There’s a tethered Thunderbolt 3 cable to connect to a Thunderbolt 3 laptop, a USB-C PD power, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, one HDMI 2.0 port, one 1Gb Ethernet port, Audio In/Out ports, a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gb/s port) and a USB-A 2.0 port.

When connected to a laptop, the Dock Core is able to power connected peripheral devices without the need for a separate power cable. The laptop can be kept charged by connecting its existing power supply to the USB-C PD port on the Thunderbolt dock.

“Belkin’s Thunderbolt 3 docks and adapters are perfect for remote workers, be it from the home, an RV beach vacation or a hotel room. They transform mobile devices into high productivity centers on-the-go,” said Jon Roepke, director of product management, Belkin. “They easily connect a USB-C laptop to virtually all common peripherals like displays, projectors, external hard drives, ethernet and speakers, so they can get to work quickly and easily without needing to be their own IT department. With one cable from the laptop, these docks are a clutter-free alternative to a tangled nest of cables on the desktop or dining room table now serving as an office. And since it’s dual-power – the dock can draw power directly from the laptop instead of from the wall outlet – there’s one less cable to worry about.”

Belkin’s Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core will be available for purchase in July 2020 from the Belkin website and retailers like Amazon. It is priced at $170.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 90W Dual USB-C Charger From RAVPower

For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with RAVPower to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 90W 2-Port Wall Charger that works with the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPad Pro, and more.


Priced at $50 with Amazon discounts, the RAVPower power adapter features dual USB-C ports and a 90W total output that’s able to charge all of Apple’s devices, from MacBooks to iPads.

Design wise, the Wall Charger is a simple square shape that measures in at 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches, with a thickness that’s just over an inch, so it’s smaller and lighter than the original 87W power adapter that comes with a 15-inch MacBook Pro.


GaN technology keeps it more compact than a traditional charger, making it ideal for travel thanks to both the size and the double ports. An LED light displays the charging status of the power adapter.


At 90W, the RAVPower Wall Charger is able to charge up to the 15-inch MacBook Pro at full speed, and while it’s less power than the 96W power adapter that ships with the 16-inch MacBook Pro, it will still charge, but a bit slower. It is able to charge a 15-inch MacBook in just over two hours, or a 13-inch MacBook Pro in under two hours.


With two ports, it’s able to charge multiple devices at one time. Charging a single device you can get the full 90W, and with multiple devices, the power is split between them depending on the power needs of what you’re charging. Two-port outputs for the charger are outlined below:

  • Laptop + Laptop: 45W+ 45W
  • Laptop + Phone: 60W + 30W
  • Laptop + iPad 2017/2018/2019: 45W +30W
  • Laptop + Tablet (except iPad 2017/2018/2019): 60W +30W

If you have a MacBook Air or an iPad Pro, you can charge both models at full speed while also fast charging an iPhone using a Lightning to USB-C cable. Fast charging provides 50 percent battery life in approximately 30 minutes.


According to RAVPower, the power adapter features safe charging technology with protections from overcurrent, overdischarge, short circuiting, and high temperatures.


We have 10 of the RAVPower 2-Port Wall Chargers to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win our giveaway, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.
