Simply Cleaner & Easier

Having a built-in power supply with your Thunderbolt Go Dock keeps your life simple. With one less power brick in your desktop setup, there’s less clutter for cleaner cable management. When mobile with another dock, if you lost its power brick, you are dead in the water. If you happen to misplace the Thunderbolt Go Dock’s standard and common 2-prong "figure 8" power cord, you likely already have one you can “borrow” from another device or can easily stop in at a local store for a replacement and keep working.
