Did you know that the USB charger you are currently using to charge your technological devices can have either a positive or negative impact on the functionality and longevity of your battery? Tech savvy individuals will generally advise that you should only use the cables and plugs that come with your devices to charge them as these were designed and constructed by the same manufacturers. While this is perfectly logical advice, it’s not always feasible. Chargers get lost, stolen, or even damaged and that means at some point they have to be replaced. Currently, the most commonly used chargers are Type C because they have higher capacities to transfer data, charge devices at faster speeds, and they can support a wide variety of devices.
For uninformed consumers, replacing chargers can be a nightmare because the brand-name ones that come with their devices are often more expensive than the cheaply manufactured off-brand ones that are on the market. Don’t be tempted to purchase off-brand USB cables just because they’re cheaper as they could damage your devices and are potentially dangerous.
Type C USB Chargers
In a previous article, we discussed the merits of Type C USB chargers in great detail. To sum it all up, Type C chargers are a vast improvement on their predecessors, Type A and B. They offer faster charging times for your devices, there’s less guesswork in the correct way to connect them to devices, they offer multidirectional data transfers from one device to another, and they’re much more durable.
Previous generations of USB chargers left a lot of consumers frustrated due to the fact that they’d often have to fumble to figure out the correct way to plug them in. You’ve probably experienced that frustration yourself as you aggressively try to jam the plug in one way and then the other multiple times until it finally goes in. Type C chargers are the industry’s solution to this problem and they’ve grown a great deal in popularity over the past year as more and more manufacturers and tech companies are implementing them in their interfaces.
Technology seems to be changing at the speed of lightning these days with new devices being developed and released constantly. That means the charging cables that come with these devices also need to be remodeled to support the new demands and higher data transfers and storage capacities in addition to maintaining a stronger and longer lasting battery life.
The development of the USB 3.0 was a labor of love that spanned a number of years. Consumers are demanding that more of their devices include greater functionality, multidirectional charging and data transfer capabilities, greater physical endurance, and better ease of use. Those demands were met in the form of the USB 3.0.
