USB-C™ to USB-A Cable USB Type-C has the capability of integrating charge, sync, video and USB functions into a single port, but with all change, comes a period of transition. IOGEAR's Charge & Sync Flip™ Pro, USB-C to Reversible USB-A Cable, makes this transition easier by allowing you to connect all your USB-C devices such as the new MacBook® and Chromebook™ Pixel to standard USB-A devices. The New Universal Standard USB Type-C™ is the latest universal standard in connectivity. If you've purchased the 2015 Apple MacBook or 2015 Chromebook Pixel , then you know that both feature USB-C technology. Compared to earlier generations of USB connectors, USB-C has a slim profile connector to support ultra-thin laptops and tablets. Although USB-C has a low-profile design, it packs a big punch when it comes to speed and power, boasting data transmission speeds of up to 10Gbps and power transmission of up to 100W. And best of all, it's reversible to allow hassle-free connecting. The new standard fixes the age-old problem of connecting your USB in the wrong way, eliminating the frustration of fumbling with the USB plug when connecting it to a computer. Connect your USB-C devices to USB-A devices If you have purchased a new USB-C laptop or device, you are probably having a hard time using it with your other standard USB devices (hard drives, chargers, etc.). With the Charge & Sync Flip™ Pro, USB-C to Reversible USB-A Cable, you'll be able to do just that. The cable supports data transfer as well as charging output rates of up to 3A. With this cable, your USB-A devices are now compatible with USB-C ports. Charge your USB-C Laptop With a multitude of charging ports seen across the many laptops and brands today, USB-C sets out to standardize them all with a single connection. Today, in order to keep laptops charged while on-the-go, most people will carry their laptop's AC power adapter with them wherever they go. This is not always the best option as electrical outlets are not always available for use, especially if you're traveling. This is why having mobile battery packs such as the IOGEAR 8000mAh and 16,000mAh Mobile Power Station is convenient - they are able to charge devices when conventional AC outlets are unavailable. While mobile battery packs are popularly used with smartphones and tablets, USB-C and IOGEAR now make it possible to use a mobile battery pack to charge your USB-C laptop or device. With IOGEAR's USB-C to USB-A cable, you can charge your smartphone, tablet and laptop with the same mobile battery pack* Reversible USB Ever get frustrated with fumbling around with your USB connector because you plugged it in the wrong side?
