Several of our picks are out of stock or available only as preorders at this writing. We stand by our picks, and we think they’re worth waiting for.Whether laptop owners like it or not, manufacturers including Apple are replacing the ports on their laptops with slimmer, multifunction Thunderbolt and USB-C connectors. If you need to plug in accessories with any sort of regularity, a Thunderbolt dock offers various inputs and outputs over a single cable and also charges your computer. CalDigit’s TS3 Plus is the best among them, offering more ports than other docks and excellent performance in a package that takes up little space on a desk.

CalDigit TS3 Plus, the best thunderbolt dock

CalDigit TS3 Plus

The best Thunderbolt dock
This dock has the most—and the most useful—ports, including USB-A and USB-C ports and an SD card slot. It can charge a 15-inch MacBook Pro at full speed or a 16-inch model at close to that.
