iVANKY DOCKING STATIONS –  AN ULTIMATE REVIEW

A well-known brand for high-quality and affordable electronic cables is impressively taking over Amazon’s category for electronic accessories. Along with LG, Lenovo, Dell, and Kensignton, iVANKY cables are competent enough to compete with these big brands.   

 

iVANKY was established in 2016, at the same time as its corporation, which is SHENZHEN VELOCITY TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. To know more details, check out this article about iVANKY and the corporation’s history

 

iVANKY authorized dealers are highly in demand not just for the brands’ cable but also due to another incredible electronic accessory innovation. We refer to the iVANKY docking station in three different varieties: Pro 12-in-2 Dual IVANKY USB-C Hub, iVANKY Ultra 15-in1 Thunderbolt 3, and Classic 12-in-2 Dual iVANKY USB-C Hub.

 

The abovementioned varieties of iVANKY docking stations are presented in more elaborate detail in the next section. 

 

The 3 different iVANKY Docking Station Review

 

Before we begin the review, note that the products are listed in no particular ranking.  

  • Classic 12-in-2 Dual iVANKY USB-C Hub

This iVANKY docking station is dedicated explicitly to Apple’s most recent MacBooks. It is known as the Classic 12-in-2 Dual IVANKY Hub which is the perfect plug-and-play dual USB-C. It removes the need for iVANKY drivers and the installation of specific software. 

 

If you are a loyal Apple user that is a neat freak and a heavy worker with tons of cable and wire connection requirements, this device is for you! 

Features of the iVANKY Classic 12-in-2 Docking Station 

 

  • It provides more than the lacking ports that Apple took away from you! It has 12 versatile ports, which gives a workstation that promotes productive multitasking. 

 

 

  • Battery duration is a common concern of MacBook users, especially for using accessories like a docking station. iVANKY has great news because its docking stations have an independent charging capability through their own PD. 

 

In addition, this docking station has an independent PD of 85W, perfect for efficiently 

charging both the 15” and 13” MBA.

Unlike the Pro and Classic 12-in-1 Dual USB-C Hubs specific for Apple MacBook users, this third docking station is for every laptop user. Regardless of its difference, this Ultra 15-in-1 Thunderbolt 3 still efficiently improves a user’s workstation. 

 

Considering today’s modern set-up of working from home, this iVANKY docking station has ULTRA features for innovation, creativity, and productivity.  

 

Features of the iVANKY Ultra 15-in-1 Thunderbolt 3

 

  • Wide Universal Compatibility of this docking station, including different operating systems: Windows 8, 10, & later and macOS Sierra 10.12 & later. However, it does not work with the new M1 Macbook (2020) because it only supports one external monitor.
