USB-C, sometimes known as Type-C, is the latest device charging and data transfer standard. Over the last few years, USB-C has taken over, and more and more manufacturers have adopted the USB-C charging cable as their chosen method for charging devices. The benefit of this is that having a universal connector that all major manufacturers use means you only need one USB-C charger and cable to charge a vast array of devices.
What is USB-C?
USB-C is the latest USB connector type developed by the USB Implementers' Forum (USB-IF). USB-C is replacing the older connectors, such as USB-A and micro USB. All newly-made devices, whether smartphones, tablets, or laptops, are charged and powered by USB-C cables.
One significant noticeable difference between USB-C and its older counterparts is its shape. USB-C is symmetrical in shape, and it doesn't matter which way round it is inserted.
USB Type-C Uses
USB-C is a much better technological improvement on past connectors. As well as power capabilities up to 100W, which can power almost anything from smartphones to high-resolution monitors, USB-C has much faster data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps per second. It is 20 times faster than USB2.0.
USB Type-C Compatibility
The drive behind the development of USB-C is to create a single cable for powering and charging all devices. Nearly all manufacturers have got on board and are now using USB-C as standard. A single USB-C cable is compatible with many devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and game consoles. In essence, USB-C offers almost universal compatibility across all electronic devices.
What is USB Power Delivery?
Power Delivery or PD is a charging protocol that allows for higher amounts of power to be delivered to a device via USB-C for faster and safer charging of modern devices. It can deliver variable voltage up to 20V and a 100W max. Power output. Compatible devices utilize an intelligent power management system that allows devices to charge at high speed by drawing the optimum amount of power based on device and battery status.
