You may have heard about many different types of ports and cables already. Today we want to talk about the USB-C connector.

There are lightning cables by Apple, made specifically for charging iPhones and iPads. There’s also thunderbolt, made by itel, specifically for connecting peripherals.  Now we have the USB-C. The future of cable technology. The U in USB stands for universal. This suggests that it can be used by anyone, anywhere and for a variety of things. That’s why many android phones and laptops have a USB port of some kind.

What’s Different

  1. Smaller and thinner.
  2.  More Powerful: Can carry up to 100 watts of power.
  3.  It is fast: Can transfer data at up to 10 GB per second.
  4. It is reversible: You will plug it in the right time every time no matter how you plug it in.

Implementation

  1. Laptops: Macbooks and Chromebooks are already using the Type-C ports as the sole port on the device.
  2. Smartphones and Tablets: Samsung, Google, Nokia and Huawei have already implemented and started using USB-C. It comes with the benefits of fast charging and quick data transfer.

The Future

All the above-named companies believe that USB-C is the future. It will replace many cables. For example now for your laptop you might need a separate charging cable, HDMI cable and Data transfer cable. Type C aims to fix that by implementing all those features into one.

We are of course headed into a wireless era, with wireless charging and earphones. However, there are those who still trust the features a cable has to offer and USB-C would be the best pick for you. We are looking at a future where all the functions could be done with just one cable.
