The top of the dock lifts up to reveal a slot to install a SSD. It is compatible with m.2 NVMe M and B+M key, as well as SATA B+M key in 2230, 2242/2260 and 2280 sizes. It simply slots into place and then is held down with a small rubber screw thingy.

Using the AYN Odin 2 Super Dock

As part of our AYN Odin 2 Super Dock review we will cover setting up and using it. Using the dock is very easy, connect any cables and peripherals you want to use. If you want output to a TV then connect HDMI, wireless controller dongle, keyboard and mouse dongle and so on.

Once you are ready, dock your AYN Odin 2 and power on. After a few moments it should appear on the TV. If your AYN display is blank, you can go into the Retroid settings to leave the display on if you prefer seeing on both at the same time.

If you are using a new SSD, go into the Files app, choose the storage from the side menu. Click on the three dots and then Storage Settings and you can format it for Android there. You can copy over any files to the new storage such as more games, you can never have enough, plenty of space for movies, music and more.
