Older USB-A laptops will only support a dual monitor setup.

Charge smartphones and other devices with two downstream front-facing charging ports with BC 1.2 for USB-A and USB-C devices. Fast-charge ports support always-on charging so devices will charge whether or not a host laptop is connected.
This USB-C/USB-A docking station comes with plenty of security features. One host port includes a USB-IF Certified 1m 2-in-1 USB-C/USB-A lock cable; there is a K-slot for a Kensington-style laptop lock and there are holes to mount the dock on the desk or wall.
I like the size of this dock, as its small enough to sit in the middle of my desk. It’s also very quiet, whereas with other docks I have noticed that they can get quite loud. After a full day of work, it can get rather hot. I have also noticed that when it gets hot this can affect the speed of charging.
Overall, the StarTech.com USB-C & USB-A Dock – Hybrid Universal Laptop Docking Station is perfect for anyone looking to run a dual 4K monitor set up. Finally, check out our other charging reviews. Also, don’t forget to check on our Twitter and Facebook.
