We are living in a world of wireless technology, and by this virtue, there should not be any clutter on our workstation. But a clutter-free desktop is still our distant dream. Twelve South, along with its other excellent accessories like Apple Watch armband and iPad case, has come up with an awesome USB-C dock.
Unlike other USB-C hubs, StayGo from Twelve South is unique in its design, body, usefulness, and features. A single hub can remove all those redundant pieces, which would create a colossal mess on your desktop. It is the most flexible and portable device you would like to carry during your long travels. Let’s check this dock in detail.
StayGo from Twelve South Presents a Desktop-friendly USB-C Dock
Portable & Flexible
Global travelers would like to use StayGo as it is highly flexible for them to carry in their travel bags or even pockets. I am more intrigued by its name – StayGo. This means you can stay as well as go. So while you are stationary in your office or at home, you can keep this dock on your desk to connect multiple accessories to your Mac. During travels, you can always use it the way you want.
It is hard to achieve this scene especially when you are using your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, camera, and other gadgets; on top of that, you need to connect them all with your Mac. Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t provide many ports to invite more than five connections.
StayGo USB – C hub keeps your workspace clean as you can attach all your devices at the same time. I can see that StayGo will be more appreciated by Mac mini users, who have to use at least four cables if they are not using wireless mouse and keyboard.
Connect Many Products
StayGo USB-C dock offers eight connections. You can connect:
- USB-C (to MacBook) | pass-thru 85W USB-C PD charging
- 4K HDMI | Crystal clear 4K x 2k @ 30Hz HDMI/Full 1080p
- USB-A 3.0 / BC 1.2 Charging Port | SuperSpeed up to 5 Gbps with BC 1.2 7.5W Fast Charge

Wireless devices are not for creative people who are working on massive files. With its Gigabit Ethernet jack, creative professionals can use super-fast wired networks. Moreover, they can download photos and videos from MicroSD and SD cards with a high transfer rate. They can move high-resolution images or 4K videos to edit on their iPad Pro or Mac.
To make USB-C hub desktop- and travel-friendly, Twelve South has designed StayGo smartly. The best thing about this product is a compact travel cable, which stows away inside the hub. You can never find it unless you see this cable with some efforts.
Externally, it is a neat and clean slab, which is not hefty when you carry in your hands. The metal body of this hub protects its six-inch travel cable. When not in use, you can insert the travel cable in a hole, and put the hub in your laptop bag or backpack.
What’s in the Package?
Inside the package you will find:
- StayGo USB-C Hub
- 1-meter desk cable
- 1 Travel cable that stows inside the hub
That’s all folks!
Stay or go?
I am impressed by the product and its name; whether you stay or go, this hub will undoubtedly help you. Use this product at the office or home and make the most out of it. Products like StayGo are here to stay for a long time, or you can expect another miracle from Twelve South!
