USB type C is newer version of older USB 2.0 which was used before 2012 when data transfer at low speeds was the only option. USB type C features a new, smaller connector that is semiconductor technology based and is reversible so it becomes easy to plug in without remembering its side. USB type C devices can carry significantly more power, almost 50 to 100 watt so that it become compatible and can be used to charge larger devices like laptops. Modern type C connectors also offer up to double the transfer speed of USB 3 at 10 GB per seconds.
USB type C is used for multiple purposes like it is the emerging standard for charging and transferring data and every newer laptops might require a type-C flash drive These are included in modern devices like the newer laptops, phones, and tablet PC. It is used to charge modern devices like smartphones and tablet PC.
Modern technology is now shaping up and contributing to be very compatible and useful replacement for older USB 2.0 devices .Some of the most used standard modern devices like Thunderbolt and Display Port uses type C connectors for fast data transfer. USB type C is being used as a potential replacement for audio jack that is present in media devices like smart phones. These devices increases Power Delivery for improved power-delivery over older USB 2.0 connections
Features of USB type C:
USB Type C has a smaller but more useful physical connector that helps in physical connection with modern devices. It is mostly the size of a micro USB connector but it is much more fast and reliable connection. The USB type C connector is also energy efficient and itself can support various exciting new USB standard like USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 old connectors.
The standard USB connector with which you are most familiar with is USB Type A that is also termed as USB 2.0. But as devices became smaller and thinner, those massive USB ports just didn’t fit. This gave rise to lots of other USB connector shapes like the “micro” and “mini” connectors.
You do not have to get a storage of old different sized and shaped 2.0 connectors. USB Type C offers a new connector standard that’s very small. It is easily manageable and workable at both sides. That one tiny connector is small enough to fit into a super-thin mobile device. It is also powerful enough to connect all the peripherals like modern media devices you want to your laptop. The cable that is used to transfer data has USB Type C connectors at both ends it’s all one connection so there is no need to flip the connector or try to force it in around a minimum of three times in effort to keep looking for the correct orientation. This USB connector shape is the one that all devices should adopt, so you do not have to keep loads of different USB cables.
