This leather carrying case for MacBooks features a unique way to end the dongle life.
Designed as an answer to the great dongle dilemma, the DockCase is a slim leather sleeve with a line of parts on the end. The case features an ethernet port, HDMI port, two USB-C ports, three USB 3.0 ports and SD and MicroSD card slots.
The sleeve works by plugging into a USB-C port on your MacBook, which enables the hub of connectors on the sleeve.
There are three sleeve sizes available for the 12-inch MacBook along with the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro. The sleeves are available in five colours, as well as a genuine leather version.
Currently, the prices range from $119 USD to $249 USD (roughly $155 to $324 CAD). However, you’ll definitely pay a premium for the genuine leather version of the case.
DockCase does ship internationally, but its website warns that international shipments may be charged local taxes and duties.
Apart from that, though, the price seems reasonable. Comparable options for USB hubs don’t provide nearly as many ports. They also aren’t protective sleeves.
DockCase started off on KickStarter. The product hit its funding goal in one day and ended the campaign with 1,714 backers.
The sleeve can be purchased from the DockCase website.
