OWC Thunderbolt Hub
Add More Thunderbolt™ Ports + Use With USB-C Machines Too!
More Ports for A World of Possibilities
For the first time ever, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you consolidate and simplify the connectivity between all your devices with all the Thunderbolt ports you’ve always wanted. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub’s four Thunderbolt (USB-C) ports and one USB port massively expand your connection possibilities. Now you can do more, effortlessly on your Apple M1 Mac or iPad, any Apple Intel-based Mac with Thunderbolt 3, or any Thunderbolt 4 PC. You can also use the OWC Thunderbolt Hub with USB-C machines like Chromebooks and iPads too.3

0.8m Thunderbolt cable. It’s in the box.
One Hub to Connect Them All
You can connect and charge nearly anything via this compact hub through a single port on your Thunderbolt equipped Mac or PC. Up to two 4K displays or one 5K/6K/8K display1, high-performance storage including NVMe solutions, A/V mixers, phone or tablet, even desktop accessories like a keyboard or mouse are all fair game. Accessories with past, present or future USB or Thunderbolt interfaces — all connect to the OWC Thunderbolt Hub.
With daisy chains, removing any device other than the last one will break the chain and disconnect devices until you reconnect them. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you create three separate “tree branch” chains, so you can remove devices from one chain without affecting or disconnecting the others. You can even add three bus-powered Thunderbolt devices.
Plug in Multiple Bus-Powered Thunderbolt Drives
In the past, daisy chaining external storage required you to place it as close to the front of the chain for the fastest and most reliable performance. Placing bus-powered drives first in the chain was impossible as they had to be placed last, and the chain was limited to just one bus-powered device! Now you can connect multiple bus-powered drives directly to the OWC Thunderbolt Hub and unleash their performance.
A Higher Vision
Thanks to its Thunderbolt technology, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you connect to a single 5K/6K/8K display, or up to two 4K displays. Enjoy more precise and vivid details in graphic-intensive CAD drawings. Take your Photoshop or Affinity Photo images up a notch. Edit large format video on one display, while previewing the raw playback on the other. Attend a video meeting on one screen while editing content on another screen. Whatever your workstation display needs, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub gives you the connectivity you need to execute your vision.1

You can also transform your USB-C tablet or phone into a desktop-like machine by adding an external display, keyboard, mouse, and external drive.4
It’s about time someone invented a hub that looks and works as stylishly cool as you. Surrounded with heat-dissipating anodized aluminum capped off by a polished black top, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub runs cool and looks great no matter where you put it on your desktop. When you’re taking a short break or are done for the day and your computer goes into sleep mode, the OWC Thunderbolt continues to power and/or charge connected devices.
Disconnect in One Click
Safely disconnect multiple drives in a single click. OWC Dock Ejector was designed by OWC hardware and software engineers to ensure all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss. It makes losing your hard-earned work a thing of the past.
Apple SuperDrive Ready
OWC's free Dock Ejector software also includes a special driver that enables your OWC Thunderbolt Hub to play and burn CDs and DVDs with the Apple SuperDrive. Just connect the SuperDrive to an open USB-A port on the OWC Thunderbolt Hub for bus power to watch a DVD movie, listen to music CDs, create a backup disk, and install software.
OWC Thunderbolt Cable Included
OWC Thunderbolt Hub comes with a certified 0.8M OWC Thunderbolt Cable. But if your workflow demands a different length to make the connection, OWC Thunderbolt 4/USB-C Cables are the perfect choice.
Stabilize Thunderbolt and USB-C Cables
Active workspaces expose gear to bumps, shoves, or even the random tail wag from a pet. OWC ClingOn custom cable stabilizers (sold separately) screw into the OWC Dock or OWC Drive housing to reduce – if not completely eliminate – cable strain on Thunderbolt and USB-C connections so you can work with confidence even in the highest foot traffic environments.
