Today JSAUX – probably one of the most prolific manufacturers when it comes to Steam Deck accessories – announced the RGB docking station and backplate for the Deck.
Just look at the pictures. It’s freaking gorgeous. Need I explain more?
The docking station comes in two varients. Both have a USB 2.0 port, two USB 3.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a HDMI port, and three USB-C ports (one for PD, another for in, the third for 3.0). The upgraded varient also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a TF card slot, a SD card slot, and a DisplayPort 1.4 port. It also supports 4K@120Hz.
The docking station has six different lighting modes to choose from:
- rainbow wave
- spectrum cycle
- race cycle
You can use OpenRGB to customize the colors.
In addition to the docking station, JSAUX is also offering a trasparent version of the Steam Deck backplate with RGBs. It has its own battery, light switch, and it can stay charged via a dedicated USB-C port. Color patterns are as follows:
- color shift
- color marquee
- red/blue/green/purple breathing
The docking station (the 8-in-1 version) is available for purchase now for $60. The 12-in-1 version “is expected to ship at the end of August.” The transparent backplate is available for $40. If you want you can also get the transparent front plate in addition to the backplate for $60.
