The JSAUX Modcase (PC0104) supports also an 11-in-one external dock for portable warriors. The HB1101 packs small dimensions with many ports and functionality, including TypeC/TypeA/HDMI/DP and even microSD/SD cards! The HB1101 external dock supports apart from SteamDeck use (Linux) also Android/Windows and MacOS operating systems.
You can hook up many different cables/devices and power them also
The included 1GBit LAN and microSD/SD ports are really useful.
This dock has also two display out ports, 4k @ 120HZ with HDMI2.1 ports/cables and DP 1.4 4k@120hz as well. Note that if you connect both ports the display output will be reduced to 4K@60Hz.
You can connect up to 100Watt power bricks to power up various devices and even laptops.

The retail package includes all needed logos about the product
Everything is well-packaged and secured
Included in the package you will find a side right Angle USB-C Female to Male adapter and a short TypeC to TypeC cable
There is also a Modcase plastic case/adapter, which you will slide inside the HB1101 in order to get it fitted at the back of the Modcase
The device it self is made out of aluminum and as a dark grey color with the JSAUX logo at the top.
All ports can be found either at the back or the front of the dock. At the front, you can find two USB-A3.0 ports, a full-size SD and a microSD slot, and the 3.5mm mic/headphone jack
At the back, you will find the 1Gbit Lan, a USB2.0 port, an HDMI 2.1 port, and DP 1.4a port, and two Type C connectors for Power and connection with the SteamDeck.
The included plastic case will be needed to secure it at the ModCase.
You can rotate the external dock either left or right according to your needs. Also note that the 11-in-one dock now can be used as a stand, no need for the default metal stand.
To test the 11-in-one JSAUX dock, we connected the SteamDeck with an HDMI 2.1 cable to a Sony X900H that supports up to 4K @ 120hz with HDR, and here are our results:
SteamDeck was able to drive the Sony TV up to 4K @ 120Hz
and HDR is being supported under Windows 11 @ 4K/120Hz.
The HB1101 external dock has been recently released from JSAUX and offers advanced connectivity with top performance for not only SteamDeck users but for all overall use of an external dock with its many different ports. As usual, performance comes at a premium price, and the HB1101 costs ~$69.99, which can be satisfied by the fact that it has tons of ports and two display outputs 4K @ 120Hz (when both displays are being used, resolution drops at 4K @ 60Hz). Moreover, we did find that HDR was possible, so that's another plus for this external dock. We liked the fact that it has SD/microSD ports, among with a 3.5mm jack (mic/headphones) and in addition two USB3.0 ports. We would like to see a 2.5G network, but also the 1Gbit port LAN is welcomed. Finally, the included USB2.0 port can be used for wireless keyboard/mouse dongles and the 100watt capable Power delivery over TypeC will make sure your SteamDeck is fully charged when playing those long gaming sessions.
