Hi, We have bought recently an HP ProBook 430 G5 notebook.
We need a Dock compatible with this model that supports multiple screens, network and power charging. I can see that exists a lot of models but We have questions abouts the Thunderbolt G2.
The price is well but we need to know with security that this model is full compatible with de ProBook 430. ¿Can power charge this model throw the USB-C and mantain the charge level? In the specs appears that is 15W (Thunderbolt G2) and 65W (Pro Book). We need additional cables, adapters or something like this? Any better Dock?

The Probook 430 G5 supports usb-c PD (power delivery) and Alt-Mode video passthrough of usb 3.1 gen2. The new Hp Tunderbolt G2 dock supports TB connected laptops but will also support plan usb-c PD/Alt-mode connections and will behave, in that case, as a standard usb-c dock - NOT a TB dock
which means, the Probook G5 models will work with the G2 TB dock, but not as a thunderbold dock

Either dock will charge the laptop while powering external monitors, etc. the laptop requires around 45W (i believe) and the docks come with either a 90W (usb-c dock) or 120W (Thunderbolt dock), so plenty of power available for the laptop
