The Latest USB Model: The USB-C a.k.a Type C Connector

Over the years, with improvements in data transfer and power delivery technology, the hardware of USB connectors has also evolved from their earlier iteration the USB-A to its latest version, the USB-C – meant to eventually replace all other USB types that came before it.

Our take? The future where all electronics will have a USB-C connector is imminent! So, make sure you get your very own USB-C charger before all other chargers become obsolete for your devices. 

Benefits of USB-C Compared to Other USB Connectors

  • Easier to Use – The USB-C comes with a reversible connector so that it’s intuitive to just plug and play regardless of orientation. Unlike the other USB connectors where you need to look for the right side up to ensure it works properly.
  • Universal Compatibility – Designed to work across all kinds of electronic devices from smartphones, laptops, cameras, tablets, and even different operating systems, the USB-C is a game-changer. Bid goodbye to days of hoarding multiple chargers and charging cables, as you’ll need just one!
  • Better Performance Overall – The point of a new type of USB is enhanced performance and the USB-C does not disappoint. With faster data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, and higher power delivery up to 100 W, so you can charge even the most power-hungry of devices, it is no wonder manufacturers are excited to adopt this new improved standard for their devices.
