CalDigit TS3 Lite is a simple, good looking connectivity expansion with multiple different port choices but isn't really functional as a charger.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Independent charging
Even when it is not connected to a computer, it is possible to charge other devices through its USB 3.1 Type A ports.
Pro Quite versatile
Unless you have very specific requirements, the TS3 Lite gives you most of the needed ports for everyday use. This includes:
-An Ethernet port for a more stable internet connection,
-Two first generation USB 3.1 Type-A ports for backwards compatibility with older cables,
-Additional Thunderbolt 3 ports,
-A basic 3.5mm audio out (and in) for your headphones and
-A DisplayPort to connect to an another monitor.
Pro Maximum resolution of 5K
Can support one display with 5120 x 2880 resolution through its DisplayPort.
Pro Can support two 4K displays
It has the ability to support two 4K resolution displays. One cable is coming from the DisplayPort and the other from one of its Thunderbolt 3 ports (while using a USB-C to HDMI adapter).
Pro Has both Mac & Windows compatibility
Con Not a real charger
Although it can provide 15W of charging it clearly is not enough as most chargers are 60W and upwards.
