USB Type-C to USB Type-A Cable Connects a USB-C Mobile Device to Your Computer This three-foot USB-C 3.1 to USB-A cable allows you to connect a device with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port to a USB-enabled computer, charger, hard drive or other peripheral for the purpose of charging, powering, syncing or transferring data. It is compatible with any device with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port, including tablets, smartphones, MacBooks, Ultrabooks and Chromebooks. PD Charging Cable Charges Devices and Transfers Data at Lightning-Fast USB 3.1 Gen 2 Speeds The USB-C to USB-A cable supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 data transfer rates up to 10 Gbps, which is twice as fast as USB 3.1 Gen 1. The Power Delivery cable also provides power output up to 3 amps (60 watts), which is more than sufficient for charging, syncing and powering compatible devices. The cable is backward compatible with previous USB generations, allowing you to use it with older equipment. Reversible USB-C Connector Attaches in Either Direction Unlike traditional USB cables that connect in only one direction, the reversible USB-C male connector plugs into a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port in either direction for a fumble-free connection every time.
