USB-C sucks, who came up with that 🍎????
Don´t you think is better the lightning connector cause it just a hollow in the device and in case you take the cable in wrong way you won't brake anyhting?

What is the specifications limit for the maximum length of the USB-C cable ?
Diana Miller (9 months ago)
Great, very happy about the speed of the type C. Also, excited for the future when we'll be able to use the cables for large-scale projects.

Can someone please help me. I have an LG G4 and I have a fast charging adapter, but I also need an USB-Cable that supports it. Does my phone support a Type C- Usb Cable? or does Micro USB also support fast charging?

Can a new USB 3.1 flash drive fit in a male USB 3.0 Socket? Can a USB 3.0 flash drive fit in the new ISB 3.1 socket?
wowerman (1 year ago)
So we have been using Usb 2.0 and 3.0 for many years and now you have to ditch all stabdards because someone invented type C connection?Big BS.They should now make devices with both ports so there a smooth transition and not making people struggle with different plugs and adapters.Also any computers and laptops ahould get 3x new type C port and you want to use all at once.Non resersable Usb 3.0?You have to be brainless monkey not to know how to match plug and socket.There are other types of plugs in the world and have ony one way to plug in.Should we change them all too?Otherwise its total horse sh..

It's ergonomically poo poo that it would be the same on both ends, It's more aesthetic to have a small port on the external device (like a phone), and a big port on the main device (like your PC)

I read somewhere that there is a new version of usb c that replaces TV hdmi cables and carries sound and video and is a usb c1f or something like that. So will that make the usb c obsolete next?

Type c is must. I find myself helpless when my ipad battery dies. Lightning cables r nt so common as android use usb 2.0 or 3.0. If all device gets use type c it would be a win win situation for all.

Can you charge micro USB on a USB-C device? I'm confused...
Tech2Make (10 months ago)
Yes,you can. If you have an USB-C to micro USB adapter ,then you can charge it because USB-C is backward compatible to USB 3.0 & USB 2.0 :)

Jafar Al-Moosa (1 year ago)
the only similarity is that it's reversible, it doesn't provide as much speed, you can't connect it from either end, and it doesn't have the ability to drive high voltage devices,

Dennis Fluttershy (3 years ago)
Wasn't the reason with A and B that people shouldn't plug printers to printers, and computers to computers? So people will understand that A goes to B, to make a connection. (3:25)

"Hey man, do you have a phone charger?" "Yeah, but it's micro USB. Does that work?" "What's that?" "Do you have an iPhone?" "Yes." "Nope, that won't work." I can't wait for the day I never have to have that conversation again.

adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
can anyone please tell me why they didn't make it a barrel typed connector? they could have made it any shape they wanted, but went with this crap!
adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
I know and said that the nokia was for power. And it had 2 cables. One for positive and one for negative. One on the outside, and one on the inside. Why not have the power on the inside and data on the outside(or the other way) The 20 sides is just to make it not rotate. The connectors would still be rings, like a headphone jack.
adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
+Ef Bee Eye the rotating plug? Make it a 20 sided polygon, and it will be just like a circle for the user, but it wont rotate. Power, I'm not an electrician. Please explain why transferring power is a problem. Nokia (rip) had a super tiny barrel connector for power. You can make a barrel connector for data, and a barrel connector for power, why can't you have both?
adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
+Ef Bee Eye none that I know of. But it doesn't matter. Both power and data connections are just cables. You can make them in any shape you want. The barrel connection is far more complex. While the pin line is really easy. Having 7 cables in a 2.5 mm barrel is the maximum I know of. Usb 3.0 and up, needs 9 at least and 11 is the fastest. Also, if they made it barrel it will not have any room for more in the future. Putting more pins in a barrel needs a bigger barrel. That cant fit in a phone, so if they would have made it so, they would have to cancel it in 4.0
adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
+Ef Bee Eye what? They can be align with a barrel connection just as well. The only question is, can they fit 11 pins in a barrel and still have it be small
adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
+atomcraft22 sorry, my bad. What I said only apply to the older usb. Since usb 3 has 9 pins
adir mugrabi (3 years ago)
the iphones will still have a weird proprietary charger

quazarblack (3 years ago)
Great, now the usb is going cost as much as a game controller. Smh. I know its not going cost the as the current ones with have gone up not down in price. Its going stay high so people get used to seeing it at this level so when then the new one is released at a similar but higher price they'll be ok with it because it's new
It's almost too good to be true.
Harish v.v (3 years ago)

Nephinim (3 years ago)
Well said, short and very informative. It would also be nice to see the type-c symbol if there is one, I believe my lenovo y50 4k touch came with one but not sure can't find the Manuel that came with it.

APPLE DID NOT INVENT TYPE-C. I had to say it before anyone else asked. TYPE-C was out months before Apple showcased it's new Macbook. It was invented by a group of companies, not one (Microsoft, HP, Dell, IBM and some other respectable names, invented USB Type-C)
Manticore - RetroFX (2 years ago)
+Peter Mcwilliams I am 22 with a stable job and working on my doctorate. I'm not going to sit here and waste my time with your uneducated huffing and puffing. By the way, I am right, and you're ignorant.

+P O R O Z O R A No obnoxious uneducated people do that. Nobody has ever claimed that to my knowledge. The fact that you used the term "isheep" means you're twelve and we're done here.

+Peter Mcwilliams Basically every iSheep that does not know any better has claimed such a thing.
