A Response to COVID-19 From OWC Founder and CEO, Larry O'Connor
AKiTiO Thunder Dock

As of August 24, 2020, the AKiTiO Thunder Dock has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The AKiTiO Thunder Dock was a Thunderbolt dock providing multiple host ports for USB 3.0, eSATA and FireWire 800, as well as a second Thunderbolt port for daisy chaining additional Thunderbolt devices.

As an alternative, for a Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 Mac, we recommend using one of our self-powered Thunderbolt 3 docks in combination with the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter from Apple.
