USB-C: Say Hello to a Smarter Connection with USB Type-C Cables

Posted

Every time we turn around, there is a new phone, tablet or innovative technology coming out with brand new benefits outdoing the last. USB Type-C™ (or just USB-C) is one of those exciting new developments. Motorola and Samsung have recently debuted new devices with USB-C and other leading manufacturers like Google, LG, Apple and Dell have also built their latest and greatest devices with USB-C since last year.

The main benefits of USB-C include speed, power and ease-of-use. With USB-C, we will have much faster data transfer speeds, faster charging and a lot more power! We can finally decrease the amount of time we spend tethered to an outlet. USB-C can help reduce the number of cables needed as well.
