Adds Essential Functionality
on April 11, 2013
This dock adds essential functionality to the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 to perform as a mini-workstation.
Unpowered peripherals such as external hard drives or optical drives that connect to the low powered USB 2.0 port on the Tablet 2 itself unfortunately will not work. When connected to an external power supply, this dock supports 3 high powered USB 2.0 ports which allow for unpowered peripherals to run off them.
If Ethernet connection is important to you at home or in the office, then the presence of an RJ45 jack is a sight for sore eyes.
The dock also comes with a full size HDMI port to allow for connection of the Tablet 2 to an external monitor.
The charging cable that comes with the Tablet 2 connects via a low voltage micro-USB and results in very long charge times (upwards of 4-6 hours). However, the 65W AC adapter on this dock allows for rapid charge times on the order of approx. 1-2 hours.
Though somewhat pricey for what it is, I think this dock does just enough to warrant the cost.
