Q1.What's the big difference between the DockCase A1s and A1 model?
For better user experience, we upgrade the DockCase A1s model with a cooling fan embedded in the docking portion, which features the 10,000 rpm to help dissipate heat faster. When comparing with the A1 model, the tempearture of the A1s docking portion will drop 4° ~ 6° in the same working condition.
Q2.Does the model A1s support charging other devives?
Yes, the A1s model can support charging phones and tablets with the USB-A charging output of 5V 1A with the optimization of the circuit board.
Q3.Do you have plans for a Mini DisplayPort instead of HDMI?
We're considering adding the Mini DisplayPort, but it depends on the market feedback.
Q4.Do you have plans to add a MagSafe port to the DockCase?
No. The MagSafe port is for the old-version MacBook, and it needs authorized certifications from Apple, so MagSafe port is not in our plan.
Q5.Can I use all connections at the same time?
Yes, you can use all connections at the same time for data transfer and expansions (and type C PD port for charging the MacBook Pro). But please avoid using the DockCase for charging your mobile devices.
Q6.Can it do 4K @60 Hz through the USB-C connection?
Curently, our HDMI port support 4K/30Hz, 1080P/60Hz. We will see what we can improve for this port. For further information, please stay tuned.
Q7.How much does the sd card protrude when connected?
Half of the SD card will protrude when connected.
Q8.Can the dock be separated from the case?
No, the dock and the case are designed together to take on the go. They can't be separated.
Q9.Does the MacBook Pro have a good ventilation when put on the cover for use?
The case is crafted of microfiber leather, which is breathable and at the same time, with a cooler fan inside, it will also help dissipate heat faster.
Q10.When resting the Macbook on the Dockcase, does the side without the ports have any supports to keep the Macbook sitting straight? Or does the Macbook sit at an angle?
There is a sleeve flap on the other side that helps keep the balance. It will keep perfect balance when you place the computer on the sleeve. And it will be slightly uneven within a 3° angle when you place the computer on the dock.
Q11.Are there any pockets on the case to hold charger/external hard drive etc?
We have a sleeve flap but I don't think it can hold chargers and external hard drives. But we do have a special sleeve in the case to store our C to C cable.
Q12.Can I connect it with an usb A to usb C cable? So I can connect it to an older MacBook Pro?
Technically, it cannot work with older version MacBook Pro through the USB-A to USB-C cable.
Q13.Can it work with other USB-C laptops?
Currently DockCase is custom-made for 13' and 15' Macbook Pro of late 2016 and 2017 version, and the upgraded version for more compatible laptops is still in the developing process. You can contact us to check whether it compatiable with your MacBook.
Q14.Can I charge an iPhone through the dock?
Yes. This upgraded one can charge an iPhone at 1A output.
Q15.Is there any covers for the ports? Will it be easily broken?
There is no cover for the ports. SInce the dock is made of premium aluminum alloy, it won't be scratched or break.
Q16.Can I put my Mac with a hard shell into DockCase?
Since DockCase is specially designed for the size of Mac, so there is not enough room for the hard shell.
Q17.Does it support Apple USB SuperDrive?
No. MacBook Pro models with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports require a USB-C to USB Adapter to use Apple USB SuperDrive.
Q18.Does it support connecting other hubs?
Yes, DockCase supports connecting other hubs, and it shares DockCase's power limit of 10W.
Q19.Does the speed of fan can be adjusted and the fan can be closed?
The speed of fan cannot be adjusted and the fan cannot be closed when it starts to work.
Q20.Does the sound of fan can be heard?
When the fan starts to work, you can hear the sound of the fan, the decibel range is about 40 DB-50 DB when your ear closed to the fan. When a breeze blowing the trees or when people talking in normal status, the sound you hear is about 40DB- 50DB.
