Technology experts say that a silent revolution is taking place in the field of smartphones and laptops that will change the way most people charge these electronic devices. The universal serial bus type C (USB-C) cable is emerging as the latest protocol for the charger port that prominent manufacturers such as Apple are incorporating in their new devices. These professionals explain that in the coming years, this new universal serial bus cable will be the standard for all latest smartphones, laptops, desktop computers, tablets and other similar devices in the market. They guarantee that it is going to transform your life for the better.
These experts say the new universal serial bus type C (USB-C) usually describes the shape of the plug. If you are currently using a smartphone that functions on an Android operating system, you will notice that the shape of connector port is compatible with the standard universal serial bus type B (USB-B) cable. On the other hand, most laptops need the universal serial bus type A (USB-A) cable. Fortunately, the latest universal serial bus type C (USB-C) is interchangeable. It implies that unlike the standard micro universal serial bus (Micro-USB), which you can plug into your smartphone to charge it and is similar in shape to a USB-B cable, you can use the new USB-C cable in either way. It puts an end to the fumbling around you normally do when it comes to charging your smartphone.
Why is the USB Type C a cut above the rest?
These professionals clarify that the most significant advantage of universal serial bus type C (USB-C) is its compatibility with standard USB Type B and Micro USB cables, which use 3.1 specifications. In fact, the best USB C cable has a more efficient data encoding mechanism that allows it to transmit information at speeds equivalent to 10 gigabits per second(Gbps) at either of its ends. It is twice the speed of most universal serial bus type B (USB-B) cable can perform. The reason why most laptop and smartphone manufacturers prefer the new universal serial bus type C (USB-C) over other variants is that it is also compatible backward. It implies you can use this cable with most electronic devices that have universal serial bus 2.0 and 3.0 ports but the transfer of data is slightly slower.
The universal serial bus type C (USB-C) provides electricity transfer at a faster rate than most USB Type A and USB Type B cables. It means that it takes less time to charge your laptops and smartphones. Most chargers operating on universal serial bus 3.0 (USB 3.0) specification provide power equivalent to 12Amps, but the total output is only 5Amps. On the other hand, the new universal serial bus type C (USB Type C) can charge your latest at three times more quickly. Moreover, this cable allows you to transfer power via two-ways. That means that you can use your smartphone, which is compatible with USB Type C configuration to charge a tablet or any other phone.
These experts express the view that universal serial bus type C (USB Type C) will become a standard feature of smartphones and laptops of the future.
