So, it's finally here! The latest USB 3.1 Type-C standard has arrived to revolutionise the conectivity world! "But what exactly is this new version of USB" I hear you say... well let me explain...
USB 3.1 SuperSpeed Type-C: Simplified
With the USB 3.1 Type-C plug, we get a new plug design that is reversible, meaning it inserts with either orientation (no more fiddling for the USB socket in the dark, only to find you have the connector up the wrong way). But physical differences aside, USB 3.1 can now support data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps - that's twice that of USB 3.0. Furthermore, the power and charging ability of the cables has been greatly increased... and if that wasn't enough, USB 3.1 Type-C cables can now be used natively to carry AV signals. These AV singals are natively compatible with HDMI, DisplayPort and more when using the relevant USB 3.1 cables. Therefore, a single USB 3.1 Type-C cable can be used as a data transfer cable, power cord for your laptop, and a AV cable to your monitor all at the same time! Amazing!
One cable to rule them all
So USB 3.1 sounds amazing - and it is - but most of the new features (AV functions and increased power output, plus 10Gbps speeds) are only supported when using a USB 3.1 Type-C to Type-C Cable, or a Type-C to AV (HDMI, DisplayPort etc) cable. So until the world is full of Type-C compatible devices, backwards compatibility to older USB 3.0 and 2.0 standards will be the main role of USB 3.1 cables...
...and that brings me to this handy adapter which allows your legacy Micro-USB 2.0 cables work on your USB 3.1 system! Ideal for all those new MacBook and Chromebook owners out there looking to utilise their existing cables and hardware.
