T480 docking station

I would like to know if I can use a USB 3.0 dock with T480 or it must be an USB-C dock?

 

I think to use this USB 3.0 https://www.tutti.ch/de/vi/zuerich/computer-zubehoer/komponenten-zubehoer/thinkpad-usb-3-0-dock/2899...

 

and then maybe exist an USB 3.0 to USB-c adapter?

 

Thanks

Hello mrripe,

 

yes you can use the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock (pro or ultra) with the T480, not necessarily only the USB -C Dock

Thanks! Why you said pro or ultra. When I check compatibility only the PRO have model T480. Ultra doesn't list T480. I mean the USB 3.0 type

Hello.

 

Isaid Pro or Ultra related to the USB 3.0 Dock.

 

as for the USB-C Dock, there are 2 models, the USB-C Dock and the USB-C Dock Gen 2

What I mean is that USB 3.0 Dock Pro have listed T480 in comatible model, see here https://www.lenovo.com/de/de/accessories-and-monitors/docking/universal-cable-docks-usb/ThinkPad-USB...

While USB 3.0 Dock Ultra doesn't list T480, see here https://www.lenovo.com/gb/en/accessories-and-monitors/docking/mechanical-docks/ThinkPad-Ultra-Dock-9...

So I think that only USB 3.0 Dock Pro work, right?
