Closeout deal on OWC USB-C Travel Dock

$29.76 for the Rose Gold model (half off the original price) -- limit one.

I haven't used the travel version but have had a good experience with the 10-port model (that now looks to be compatible with several desktops Macs).

I did not have luck with the 10 port, even with phone support. Have them both.

There was a period of incompatibility; encountered that myself and returned it (I was trying to use with an iMac18,2).

See this note this on the product page; they only just added compatibility with certain Macs:

Important: as of 6-15-20 docks purchased from MacSales.com are compatible with the following host models: MacPro7,1 / Macmini8,1 / MacBook8,1 / iMacPro1,1 / iMac18,x / iMac19,x. Note that if you purchase this product from one of our reseller partners this compatibility update may not have been applied yet. If you need assistance with one of these host computers, please contact our Support Team.

Yeah, they told me about its incompatibilities well after I went through hours of diagnosis and trouble-shooting thinking I could discover the problem on my own, I never imagined I was getting a product that only worked with a very small subset of Mac Laptops. No one offered to take it back, and it's been a brick in my bookshelf for years since.

Contact them. There's a fix for the device that's only been available since last month (June 15, 2020) (see my post above) so you will be able to de-brickify it and make use of it or sell it.

I know it's sold by our sponsor, but it's awfully big for travel purposes. I bought this one for my son for the same price. Much more compact and more ports: USB C hub
