USB-C Power Banks: The Latest in Charging Technology
Move over USB Type A and Type B, USBC-C or USB Type C power banks are the newest charging technology in town!
If you’re still thinking about or using the rectangular USB power banks for your devices, then you need to get yourself acquainted with this latest development and learn how it can improve your charging experience going forward.
What is USB-C?
USB-C is the latest type of USB port and connector shape to be introduced into the electronics industry.
The key difference between this new USB port and the older variations? The USB-C is designed with a convenient, oblong-shaped, reversible design that allows it to be connected to a device in any orientation, unlike its predecessors which have a “right way” to connect the port.
Why Make the Switch to USB-C Power Banks?
Whether you like it or not, USB-C is becoming a popular choice of USB connection for many new electronic gadgets from phones, laptops, and more, thanks to its ability to handle higher data transfer speeds and high power that allows it to charge devices more quickly.
As such, older USB connector-type chargers will no longer be compatible with these newer devices. So, if you plan to keep your new devices charged while on the go, you’ll have to make sure that your portable power banks are now USB-C compatible.
