Best laptop docking stations for Dell XPS 13 in 2024

Both the Dell XPS 13 and Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 are remarkably flexible laptops. They'll perform excellently since they have top-of-the-line specs and killer displays, but if you want to use them with a monitor like a desktop PC, you'll want to get yourself a laptop dock. These docks give you the additional ports you might need, as well as more options for connecting your laptop to monitors. Here are some of the best laptop docking stations for the Dell XPS 13 and Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 that money can buy.

All of these different laptop docks are great, and one of them is bound to offer whatever you're looking for in a dock to go with your Dell XPS 13 or Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. However, if we had to choose, we would go with the CalDigit TS4, as even though it's expensive, its offerings are unmatched by any other dock on the market. Between its support for dual 6K 60Hz displays, its 98W host charging capabilities, and its 18 ports, it's simply the most impressive laptop dock available today.

If you're looking for something that can support a triple-monitor setup, you should go with the Dell D6000 dock. Not only does it work with up to three 4K displays at 60Hz, but it also comes with four USB-A ports and a single USB-C one, too.

People looking for something on the smaller side size-wise, though, should go with the j5create Ultra Station. At its low price, its miniscule form factor, dual USB-A ports, and ability to connect to an HD monitor make it an absolute steal. The CalDigit Element Hub, StarTech Mini Dock, and Plugable UD-3900H are great compact options, too.
