Lenovo USB-C docking station compatibility

Resolution

The Lenovo USB-C docking station provides docking connections using USB-C technology. On the back of the docking station there are multiple ports for connecting other devices. In addition to the AC power in connection, the back of the device has the following ports available: 2 USB-A 2.0 (recommended for keyboard and mouse connections), 2 USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, 2 DisplayPort, 1 RJ 45/Ethernet, 1 HDMI, and 1 USB-C which is the port through which the computer should be connected. On the front of the dock there are three ports available: 1 USB-C 3.2 Gen2, 1 USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, and 1 combo audio.

To be fully compatible, the dock must provide adequate power for the device and successfully work with 2 monitors, a mouse, keyboard, and networking. The following MiWorkspace recommended and supported PC laptops are compatible with this dock, however the dock power button only works with the Lenovos:

  • HP EliteBooks 840 G5, 850 G5, 840 G6, and 850 G6
  • Dell Latitudes 5410, 5420, 5430, 5440, 5450, 5520, 5530, 5540, 5550, 7350 (standard and detachable), 7400, 9410, 9420, 9430, 9440
  • Lenovo ThinkPads T14 Gen3, T14 Gen4, X13 Yoga Gen 3

The following MiWorkspace recommended and supported PC laptops are not compatible because these laptops require more power than this dock can deliver. These laptops cannot be reliably used with this dock and attempting to do so is not recommended or supported:

  • Dell Precisions 5550, 5560, 5570, 5680, 5690, and 7680
  • Lenovo ThinkPads P1 Gen5, P1 Gen 6
