High-end devices must have USB Type-C connectors nowadays, and mid-budget phones have also gained popularity these days! – And USB-C but really awesome, it can send data, power, audio, video signals together. So this shows that USB Type-C Future Proof is a connector.
But not all USB-C’s are one thing, no matter what kind of connector or cable they see, there can be a lot of difference between them. If you are a USB-C user for the first time, it is important for you to know the following!
The wrong USB-C cable can make your designs roast nuts!
The main idea behind USB C is to use it on every device. USB Type C uses on all devices, from smartphones to desktops, laptops, tablets, computer monitors, TVs and so on. But the great thing is that not every USB Type C cable is made in the same style.
The laptop can be charged with the seam port, and the smartphone can be charged and charged on the same port. But the laptop needs more power to operate there than the mobile will need. Selecting the wrong cable can cause your phone’s USB port to become completely idle or cause serious damage to the device. This was not the problem but the previous USB cable.
However, there is nothing to worry too much about, since the USB USB cable has building protection, thus avoiding such damage. But to save on cost, many cables have that safety feature skipped, so choosing the wrong cable can ruin your device!
Not every USB-C is one thing
You’ve probably heard of USB 3.0, which supports 5 gigabits / second speed, also known as super-speed USB. It is good to make a point here, the Type-C is just a connector (meaning its model will look like this), it never indicates what its speed will be!
Where USB 3.0, 1.0, 2.5, or 2.0 is the USB data transfer speed standard. And the USB-C cable supports only one of these standards. Your device may be USB-C 2.0, or 4.1, or 4.1 Generation 1, or 4.1 Generation 2; And depending on which standard is used in your Type-C, the data speed rate may be lower or higher.
This means that if your phone uses USB Type-C, but if its speed standard is USB 2.0, you will get 1 megabit / second speed just like the old USB 2.0. However, your device may support USB 3.0 standard, but there is no guarantee that Type-C will be high speed. If your connector is “Full Featured” then it will certainly support USB 4.1 Generation 2 and the rest of the Type-C will be in mux condition. You can check from the specification whether it is full-featured or not.
Different types of protocols can be used in Type-C and are called Alternate Moods. In this case, a total of 5 protocols can be used; Display Port (DisplayPort), Thunderbolt (THUNDERBOLT), HDMI, and MHL. We have discussed all of the first articles in the article written on the display interface, here is the new MHL. MHL is especially used for connecting smartphones to TVs. And of course the standard Type-C cable of any standard may support these protocols, or they may not. And not all protocols have to be used only in Type-C, where there is a separate cable for HDMI and the HDMI cable is quite popular.
So just need to have a Type-C cable that will support all Type-C features at once, right? But here’s the problem, you won’t get all the features in a cable, maybe one will support 4.1 but no power delivery, and some will not have all the protocols together, and this is another confusing thing. Your device may be rich in features, but you will need different specification cables for different tasks. This will increase the disturbance more than ever.
Now if you use Type-C for just charging and fast data transfer, maybe or most cables have this feature. But if you plan to connect the display, your cable may not have that display protocol facility. There are many types of cables in the market now, and some can be understood only by the appearance of a cable setter or plug. But in the Type-C, everything is the same, you will find that you have a Type-C port on your monitor. You cannot decide anything without looking at the cable specification.
Only USB-C port on your device? Then you will wear another paragraph!
Many smartphone maker companies are using the most universal Universal USB-C, excluding all ports. For example, arrangements are being made to output the music via USB-C port with the exception of the headphone jack on the smartphone. Now if you want to use the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, you need to use the converter. If you want to use both the charger and the headphones simultaneously, then you need to buy a good adapter at a separate cost.
Again, your new laptop only has a USB-C port, meaning you can’t connect directly to your old portable hard drive, printer, scanner, etc. You have to use a different dongle. Various dongles and cable converters, and adapters can be built to buy adapters for the old interface!
To avoid using the wrong cable, always buy the cable from a trusted brand, or use the cable available with Just Phone to stay ultra-safe. While there is some risk that USB-C is a Future Proof Tech, there is no doubt, it is capable of providing many benefits if some things are kept in mind. And yes, it’s completely reversible, which means you can plug the cable into the device in the dark and only 3 times. A few times like the old USB, the failsafe attempt will not be needed!
