It seems like you can't buy any more of the USB mini dock though, so you are limited to 2 ports and a bunch of card readers. This is likely because of limitations of the single upstream USB-C connection?
What if we really made a premium product here? With a single USB-4 (Thunderbolt 4) connector there would be 40 Gb/s to share between all the ports. So could one make a dock with 4 USB-C ports and 4 USB-A ports all sharing that bandwidth (would be ok as some devices don't need much). Or are there other limits to how many ports there could be?
@aderutter I think there must be a fundamental limit to how many ports you can break out of one USB-C port. That must be why this thing uses two. Some Thunderbolt docks seem to do a bit more, but, they are hundreds of dollars.Hopefully we'll see something more like what you describe with USB-4
